1.  Start by inflating a balloon, this will be the base for your pumpkin.  You can change the size of your pumpkin by how much you inflate the balloon.

2.  Hot glue the driftwood pieces to each other in overlapping triangles all the way around the balloon base.  Take care not to pop the balloon with a pointy stick or the hot glue.  Fill in the driftwood pieces enough to form a solid sphere.

3.  When the glue is cool and dry, pop the balloon.  Lastly add a stem piece to the sphere to make it look like  a pumpkin.

I set my driftwood pumpkins up on my little washstand along with some pretty velvet pumpkins.

I love the subtle neutral colours of the driftwood, and they add a lot of texture too.
