Instructions:

You’ll start by selecting your fabric and trimming it into a square around your foam ball. For this 5″ ball, I cut the fabric dimensions roughly 18″ x 18″ to leave plenty of room for trimming.

Now you’ll start gathering your fabric around the ball. Try to keep the fabric as smooth as possible and fold it tightly against the foam to keep it fairly taut. Gather the excess at the top of the foam ball.

Trim the gathered fabric at the top.

Insert the stick through the fabric into the top of the foam ball and secure with jute or decorative ribbon. If you feel you need a little extra support, use the StyroGlue to secure fabric onto itself and the foam ball.

Gently press the foam ball down against a hard surface to create a flat bottom so the pumpkin will stand on its own.
