Next, take a plain pumpkin, real or faux and glue on a ribbon around the middle. Make a large fold and twist bow the same way as above, but this time using the Bowdabra and fifty inches of ribbon to make four twist and fold loops on each side.

After threading the two loose ends of the bow wire through the loop, tie the wire in the back, cutting off excess wire and fluffing the loops of the bow. Glue the bow on the pumpkin in the center of the ribbon.
