You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Project Notes: To make a small pumpkin, you will need a total of four chenille stems and one wood spool. To make a large pumpkin, you will need a total of seven chenille stems and two wood wheels.  
Step 2
Small Pumpkin:
 
ADULT: Hold three chenille stems in your hand and fold them in half. Cut along the fold with wire cutters. 
 
Place the tip of a chenille stem into the bottom hole of a wooden spool, about ½". 
Step 3
Bend the chenille stem up, forming a half circle, and place the end of the chenille stem into the top hole of the wooden spool.
 
Repeat four more times.  
Step 4
ADULT: Measure and cut a 3" length from a green chenille stem and twist the length around a pencil to form a curlicue.
 
Wrap one end of the curlicue stem around the top of the wood spool, wrapping the stem around the chenille stems to help hold them in place. 
Step 5
Large Chenille Pumpkin:
 
Stack two wood wheels onto the end of a chenille stem so that the tip of the chenille stem is level with the top of the wood wheel.
 
Bend the chenille stem up, forming a half circle, and place the end of the chenille stem back down into the wood wheels through the holes.
 
Repeat five more times. 
Step 6
ADULT: Measure and cut a 3" length from a green chenille stem and twist the length around a pencil to form a curlicue.
 
For a different look, secure the curlicue to the top of the pumpkin with a clothespin.
