The first step is super simple, in your Silhouette Studio, or Cricut Design Space, or whatever your design program of choice is, create whatever size and quantity of shape you want. You can never go wrong with circles.
Check out how easy they are to weed out, and this is like the best thing ever!
Here is the easiest part you will do, applying the circles to the surface of your pumpkin. The hardest part is placing them, but do it random and you cant go wrong. You can lift these up with a knife like shown, or a weeding hook, or even just by hand.
Due to the texture and grooves in pumpkins, an application tool for burnishing might not be the best tool. But fingers work just as well, and you can really get them into place and smoothed down really nice in those dips.
Then just keep going around and around the pumpkin until its how you like it.
Make as many or a little as you like, this is such a simple way to make something plain and little cuter.
