    • Use chalk to draw a wine glass on the pumpkin. Stick pins along the outline of the glass, leaving 1/4'' sticking out. TIP: Use the flat nose pliers to help apply the pins. Then, use a damp q-tip to erase the chalk lines.

    • Paint wine in the glass with the cranberry wine paint.

    • Knot floss around a pin to start and continue knotting each pin until all are knotted. Knot the end of the floss to finish.
