Cutting napkins into sections

Start by taking your decorative napkin and cutting it into smaller sections.

Applying Mod Podge

After cutting your napkins into a few sections, remove the second layer. 
Begin to apply your Mod Podge to your pumpkin.

After applying your Mod Podge, take your decorative napkin and place it over the Mod Podge. Gently press the napkin down onto the Mod Podge, making sure it adheres well. Once the napkin is in place, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over it. There are many ways to apply Mod Podge, so experiment and find what works best for you. Personally, I like to use a blow dryer to help speed up the Mod Podge drying process.

Applying paint to wooden decoration

Next, take your wood decoration and apply paint. Set it aside and allow it to dry.

Cutting and arranging flowers

Faux fall floral, and floral cutters

Before you start arranging your floral, get your floral cutters ready. Begin by cutting a few flowers. If you prefer, you can also cut just the leaves and tops of the flowers. In this case, you will need to glue them into the center of your pumpkin.

First, take your flowers and place them at the top center of your pumpkin. To do this, press the stems of the flowers through the pumpkin. Next, apply hot glue to each leaf and glue them around the floral arrangement.

Attaching pumpkin to candle pillar

First, take your candle pillar pedestal and apply hot glue onto the top surface. Next, add your pumpkin to the pillar. Then, take your wood decoration and place it in the center of your floral arrangement. I suggest gluing the decoration onto a craft stick and inserting it through the middle of your pumpkin. Alternatively, you can glue the wood decoration on top of your pumpkin near your flowers.
