  1. Determine the order in which the pumpkins will stack with largest as the base & progressively smaller to the top.
  2. With a paring knife, carefully cut the stem off all but the top pumpkin, leaving a 1" hole. Cut a 1" hole in the bottom of all but the bottom pumpkin to allow pumpkins to be threaded onto the dowel.
  3. Spray paint individual pumpkins with River Rock; repeating coats as necessary for complete coverage. Allow to dry.
  4. To add texture & dimension, spritz tops & bottoms of pumpkins lightly with Chocolate Brown Hammered paint; allow paint to mist onto the foundation coat of River Rock.
  5. Position number stencils onto one of the pumpkins, masking off all areas not to be painted. Spray numbers with Chocolate Brown Hammered. Allow to dry.
  6. Using Halloween stencils, trace designs onto pumpkins, or draw them free-hand. Fill in & outline design with Paint Pens. Outline house numbers with black.
  7. Add sand to bottom pumpkin. Insert dowel into sand. Thread other pumpkins onto dowel. If needed, cut dowel to fit height of the totem.
