  1. Use a toothpick to create small holes at the top of your foam pumpkin. Fill in the holes with miniature fall leaves and flowers. 

  1. Use hot glue to attach the pumpkin in place of the bike's basket.  

  1. Tie a burlap bow around a piece of twine, then staple the twine to the back of the sign if you’d like to hang your artwork.
