Tape off the pumpkin stem if you do not want it to be silver.
Spray paint the rest of the pumpkin with the silver metallic paint. This helps so you do not have to worry about gaps. Believe me, the gabs will drive you crazy if you do not! Lol!

Starting at the top of the pumpkin by the stem start pushing the thumbtacks into the foam pumpkin.

Continue going around and down the pumpkin, pushing thumbtacks in as close to each other as you can. This will take some time but I promise it is worth it! I will admit that I wouldn't want to make a pumpkin any bigger than these small pumpkins!
