Slide boots over stakes. Put pant legs into boots and around stakes,  Then  put legs of body frame into legs of pants and over the stakes in boots to support body to stand upright..

3 Hammer a wooden T-stake of wood into the ground in front of feet, to reach waist, To support pumpkin booty and to prevent it from   falling forward.(I used a microphone adjustable stand, but those are hard to come by)  Stuff legs.
 
4 Glue pumpkins together to form booty. Glue booty to pvc and to support. T. Pull pants with belt up to booty and secure to frame and    t-stake with wire. Put shirt  over spine and shoulders. Stuff  body attatch to spine with wire if nessessary. Stuff arms. Glue gloves to     end of arms. Pull arms into wanted position and glue.

5  Screw wood screw down through bottem of head, then into center of pvc pipe shoulders. Glue on hat.

 You may need more wire or have to work with it,  to get it to stand right. It depends on type of stuffing used as to whether it is heavy        or light. Have fun and enjoy. Mine only lasted 5 days in my yard before it was stolen.
