Cut the chenille stems in half.
Push the chenille stem in one side of the section and out the opposite side. Bend down the legs.

Halloween Centerpiece

Purchase small pumpkin shaped gourds. There are always lots available in the grocery stores at this time of year. Keep the ones with pretty stems to include without candles.

Parental supervision is recommended.

This project is rated AVERAGE to do.

What You Need:

Orange pumpkin gourds
Yellow, orange and black candles
Apple corer
Florists' adhesive clay, optional
Dried leaves or vines, as desired

How To Make It:

Break off the stalk from the gourds.

Insert a candle.
Make a centerpiece with several candleholder gourds and some of the ones (with nice stalks) that you saved.
Scatter in some fall (dried) leaves or vines, whatever you can find. Use your imagination!
