  • Gather all supplies. Carefully cut out a square around the bright green foam pumpkin stems to create a hole. Set the stems aside.
  • Remove bandanas from their packaging and layout flat on your work surface. Starting at one corner, insert the bandana into the hole.
  • Continue to fold the bandana using the natural shape of the pumpkin as your guide and poke the fabric into the hole with your finger.
  • Gather, fold, and insert the bandana onto the hole at the top of the pumpkin. Use a chopstick or pencil once the hole becomes filled with fabric. Repeat with second foam pumpkin.
  • Remove the extra orange foam from the stems. Bonus that the stems already have a wooden pick in them. Basecoat the stems with black craft paint, apply a second coat, if necessary. Set aside to dry.
  • Cut two lengths of natural jute twine and tie together to create a bow. Repeat to make a second bow.
  • Insert stems into the tops of the foam pumpkins and secure with a glue gun and glue sticks.
  • Attach the twine bow as the finishing touch.
