Attach Bamboo Sticks Together
Place glue over one side of a bamboo stick. Press another stick onto the glued stick and turn both sticks over with the slits facing up. Apply glue along the slit, and attach the third stick into the slit.
Use a plate for size, and lay the rope on top. Unfurl one end of the rope and coil in a circular shape eight times. Cut the end of the rope with scissors.
Secure Rope Coils
Keep the circle secure by tightly tying a piece of floral wire around the rope. Repeat the steps to create eight total rope coils.
Attach Rope Coils
Place a rope coil against the bamboo sticks, and secure with floral wire. Repeat for all coils to create a pumpkin shape.
Secure All Coils
Once all the ropes are tied, take an individual piece of rope, and wrap around the center. Secure one end with glue, wrap and glue again.
Place a Bow on Top
Tie a ribbon into a bow, and attach to the stem with hot glue.
