  1. Stack Desert Foam® bricks together to form a 7 7/8″ wide x 7″ tall x 5 1/4″ deep block and use glue gun to attach.
  2. With  entire length of twine threaded through large-eyed needle, make a (single strand) running stitch, 3″ in from outside edges of 26″ x 28″ olive green burlap. (Note: Use one continuous length of twine for gathering.)
  3. Place foam block in center of burlap. (Position block according to size given in Step 1.) Gently pull twine and help burlap gather around block. Distribute gathers toward sides, keeping burlap flat at front and back. At corners, tuck excess burlap to inside. On back tie twine ends into a knot to hold. Trim ends.
  4. Referring to photo, make floral arrangement by inserting Eucalyptus bushes first, letting branches drape over sides of burlap-covered block. Left of middle, insert Eucalyptus pods and twigs. Use wire cutters to trim stems to lengths as needed. Position and use glue gun to attach pumpkin to top left corner of block.
  5. Fray 1/2″ around edges of 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ tan burlap. Ink surface and edges of chipboard letter. With burlap horizontal on work surface, use glue gun to attach letter to burlap. Glue to center front.
  6. Referring to photo, vertically insert four upholstery tacks along each left and right front edge. Tack glue in place if needed. For display, place second pumpkin on table to right front of arrangement.
