  2. Pick up one end of the ribbon and place that end of the ribbon on the glue and gently press

  3. Gently wrap the ribbon under all the way around the pumpkin until it reaches the opposite side of the pumpkin stem

  4. Squeeze another dab of hot glue at this ending spot and press the other end of the ribbon down gently

5. Continue steps above steps gluing more ribbons in different spots starting and

ending at the stem until you have as many glued as you like
