Cut stem to desired length  – cut pipe cleaner to the same size then fold over so it is shorter and slip it into the hollow center of your rolled stem.

Vary the stem by cutting some at an angle and others blunt and flat.

Create a more dimensional stem by gluing smaller angled stem pieces to the main stem.

Small vine pieces can be made from very thin cuts of rolled felt stem pulled apart slightly before being attached to the pumpkin.

Someone Stole My Pie! :(

I added the part about their mother.

I think this just proves pintrest is a great use of time! Yeah Pintrest!

Whip out the glue gun and Hot fudge glue.

Using Fudge Hot Glue on Felt Food.

Begin with one side, I started by “drawing” drip shapes with the glue but it actually looked better when the “chocolate” looked more dipped and even.

After glue becomes more solid and tacky press sprinkle or nut beads into glue if desired and allow to dry before starting second side of cookies.

Glue will set in about 5 minutes.
