to make this you need
white chalk paint
first paint your pumpkin with the white chalk paint, while it is dying follow the first 4 steps
take the jute twine and measure it against the underneath of your pumpkin and make a circle that is the size of just under the pumpkin.
then cut 11 strands of twine, make sure that when they are folded in half they are twice the size in height of the pumpkin
fold all the twine in half and loop it on to the circle see picture 2
each loop will have two bits of twine to it, so take one piece of twine, from 1 loop then one from the loop next to it and tie it together in a double knot. then keep doing this to the next ones until the first layer is done.
step 4 and 5
keep following these steps for the first 3 rows then place it over the pumpkin
once you are half way down you can turn the pumpkin over so its the right way and keep going until you reach the top
then cut another circle to go around the top, and pull the twine tight and use the excess twine and tie it to the circle, then trim off the ends and your done.
