Wrap the felt vine strip around a pen, chopstick, etc. to coil the felt in a spiral. Repeat with the other vine. Then, tack down the vines to the pumpkin with a little bit of green thread if you’d like. Or, you could use a drop of glue to keep them in place.

With the green thread, add some veins to the green leaf cut out with simple stitching.
