I made this pumpkin at work for a display. I cut a pumpkin shape out of a piece of cardboard about 4 ft wide and about 3 feet high. I didn't use a template, I just free-handed it. It did not need to be perfect because the flowers would cover any errors. I then glued the leaves of the mums onto the stem to make it look like a real stalk. Then I started glueing the flowers on. I started at one side and worked my way to the other. After a few rows of flowers, I glued the leaves in a line to help define the pumpkin. It turned out pretty cool!
