Step 1: Cut pumpkins in half

Using a serrated knife, cut both pumpkins in half so you have four pumpkin halves.

Step 2: Paint

The pumpkins were a little too orange for my taste so I painted two halves white

2 - Then I painted one half lighter orange

3 - and one half green

4 - After they first coat was dry, I added other colors to the pumpkins for a more realistic affect

Step 3: Add wire

Using thin floral wire, thread the wire from the bottom of the pumpkin through to the top of the pumpkin. This is how you will attach the pumpkin to the wreath.

2 - lay the half pumpkin on top of the wreath,

3 - thread the wire through the wreath,

Repeat the steps with the remaining three pumpkin halves

Step 6: Making the letters rusty

While the letters are wet, sprinkle a small amount of cinnamon over the letters then spray a light coat of paint to seal the cinnamon in place.
