Step 1. Mix an equal amount of the yellow and red Fimo clay so that you can get 2 x 2cm orange balls (can go bigger if you like).
Step 2. Using a toothpick starting at the top going towards the bottom press a line into it. Make 5 or 6 lines round the ball.
Step 3. Then mix an equal amount of the two greens together (you only need a little amount)
Step 4. Make 2 little spaghetti shapes with one end going into a point. Curl the pointy end into a spiral and place them on the pumpkin.
Step 5. Then pierce a hole in the middle of the pumpkin with a headpin at the top. Remove the headpin and bake at 275 Degrees Celsius for 5 minutes.
Step 6. Once you have taken the pumpkins out of the oven allow to cool. Put in a head pin, (apply glue if necessary) make a loop and attach the chain and then the ear wires and you’re ready to wear your pumpkin earrings.
