Fill the stem with green beads.
Fill the inside of the pumpkin with orange beads.
Lay a piece of ironing paper on top of the beads and iron the design together. Turn the design upside down and carefully loosen the pegboards. Place a piece of ironing paper on top of the design and iron the beads together from this side as well.
Let the pumpkin cool under a weight.
