First, use the jute to cover the wire on the pumpkin. Next, slice the pumpkins and using some glue attach them to the opposite wires of the wreath form. Attach both wreath forms together with zip ties at the stem section.
Create a stand using a styrofoam disc covered with sheet moss. Attach the pumpkin to the stand.
Make the bow
Place a zip tie in the Bowdabra. Then, add 20 tails of wired ribbon of your choice in the Bowdabra. Add more ribbon and make loops back and forth to make a bow.
Next, add another length of 1-inch wide plaid wired ribbon. Make loops back and forth as you did before to make another bow. Then, add the jute ribbon twisting and folding to make loops until you reach the end of the ribbon. Give everything a good scrunch with the Bowdabra wand.
Now start adding the swag
Add the fern pieces balanced on both sides. Now, lay in leaves, flowers, etc. Add florals back and forth evenly. Now, give everything a good scrunch and use the zip tie to hold everything together. Fluff and shape everything. Place the swag inside the bars of the pumpkin.
Add the lights to the pumpkin if desired.
Fold a piece of Bowabra bow wire in half and place it in the Bowdabra. Using the plaid ribbon begin folding and twisting to make a loopy bow. Add some picks and then insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight for a slip knot. Attach the bow to the top with the excess wire and then make another bow in the same way and add to the opposite side of the top of your pumpkin wreath centerpiece.
