  • Scissors, ruler, clothes pin, drop cloth or paper cover for work area.



  • In a well-ventilated area, or outside, apply a basecoat to the spring using the white spray paint.
    Set aside to dry.
  • Next, apply the orange spray paints in very light coats. Alternate with the bright orange and burnt orange spray paint.
    Allow the orange paint to dry before adding additional layers as needed.
  • To attach the ends of the spring, apply a thin line of hot glue along the end of the plastic coil.
    Be sure to match up the opposite ends of the spring while the glue is wet then secure them with a clothespin until the glue cools.
    Allow the glue to set and reapply glue as needed.
  • For the stem: cut or break the twig as needed so that it fits into the center of the pumpkin. You can glue the stem in place if needed.
    Tie the ribbon around the stem and any additional decorations as desired.
