Instructions:

1. For the striped-coil pumpkin, cut 8-inch lengths of wire. Wrap each length tightly around the ice pick, leaving 1 inch straight on each end. Make six to nine coils. To place on pumpkin, first use the ice pick to poke holes around the stem and at the bottom of the pumpkin, following the seams of the pumpkin. Poke a wire end in each hole to secure.

2. For the swirl pumpkin, cut a 14-inch length of wire. Fold the wire in half. Form each end into a swirl. Shape small loops between the swirls. Use an ice pick to poke a hole in the top of the pumpkin near the stem. Push the center fold of the wire into the hole.
