3. Attaching the Pumpkins

It's time to add your painted pumpkins to the wreath base. Start applying the pumpkins with hot glue in clusters around the noodle circle.

Leave about six inches of space between the clusters. Then carry on filling the areas between the clusters with the pumpkins, making sure to leave spaces for the deco mesh.

Continue this process until you've covered the entire wreath.
