2. Gather the ends together tightly.  Join the ends together, overlapping the ends of the mesh about 3” to create a loop.  Tie the ends together with wire.  Repeat to create five mesh loops.

4. Cut a 10” square of green mesh and roll into a tube.  Tie one end together with wire and glue that end into the top of the pumpkin for the stem.  Cut another 10” square of green mesh and fold the opposite corners of the square in to meet at the center of the square.  Now pinch and gather at the center to create two points.  Glue the pinched center next to the stem for leaves.
