These are my new wire pumpkins
and they would look cute sitting on a counter or a desk. I used 20 gauge wire and a 4" piece of a branch that I cut from one of my trees. You will need 12-15 pieces of wire cut to 15" long. Criss-cross the ends about an inch and wrap it to form a circle. Hot glue the wire onto the stick, shape the wire to look like a pumpkin, cover the top stem with paper and spray paint the wire orange. Add a green ribbon and you have a pumpkin. 18 gauge wire would probably be best for this project but it is harder to work with because it is a thicker wire.
