Only work one side at a time until all fabric edges are folded in. Adjust as needed until the desired look is achieved.

For the smaller sized pumpkin, cut the fabric into a circle that measures 10” in diameter and reduce the amount of beans and badding inside the polybag. Use a shorter piece of driftwood and follow steps 4 to 10.

If the driftwood lifts up and out as you fold in the fabric, simply push it down to where it needs to be and continue folding in the fabric.

Enjoy!
