Step 2: Get Pumpkin Ball

First, roll out your orange clay into a small ball. The size of this ball will determine the size of your pumpkin. Then, using your fingernail or tool, cut troughs down from the center top of your pumpkin.

Step 3: Add Stem

Now, take a piece of green clay and roll it into cylinder about a third of the height of your pumpkin. Meld it on to the top center of your pumpkin. It should now look like a stem. 

Step 4: Add Vine

Now that you have your stem, take another piece of green clay and roll it out long. Attach one end to the stem of the pumpkin and, using your fingers, twirl the vine up into a spiral shape. This step is unneeded, but it makes the pumpkin look much more realistic.  

Step 5: Finished!
