    4. Use the #2 round brush to loosely fill in the leaves with Jack-O'-Lantern Orange, Foliage Green, and Country Red.
    5. Pick up a small amount of Country Red on the corner of a 3/4" flat brush and paint curved lines on the papier-mache round forming pumpkin sections.

    7. Seal the wreath and "pumpkin" with DuraClear Satin Varnish, if desired.
    8. Use one half of a chenille stem to attach the pumpkin to back side of the wreath. Curl the remaining half around a brush handle to form tendril.

    10. Use a permanent marker to outline and add details to all the leaves.
