4. Then pour the remains of the sand back into the container for further use another time.
5. Cut the twigs into appropriate sizes. Take an embossing stift or knitting needle and poke a hole in the top center of the pumpkins and then insert the twig. Our twigs held without glue but if you want, add a drop of glue to the hole to guarantee that the twig will stay in place.
