Clay PumpkinsFor this you will need:

  1. Saffron(Orange)/Brown and Green Color Clay (Play clay or Polymer Clay)
  2. Toothpick

How To:

Step 1:

Roll the orange clay in your palms and make a neat round ball out of it. You can vary the shape since pumpkins are seen in mildly rectangular shapes as well.

Step 2:

Make a small dent at the top of the ball using your index finger.

Step 3:

Using a toothpick make indentations (lines) around the clay uniformly.

Step 4:

For the stalk of the pumpkin use the green clay and make a shape similar to below. This again can vary, can be in any shape but should look like a stalk.

Step 5:

Place the stalk  on the dent made at the top and press mildly.

These pumpkins can be made in various shapes as shown. It is simple and will take only a few minutes to make.
