There are a few uses..........
Garland: Make as many as you like. Crochet a long chain to the desired length of your garland. Thread this through the space at the bottom of the stalk of each pumpkin. This method allows you to adjust the spacing as preferred. Alternatively crochet sections of chain, joining the pumpkins on to it as you go, but this does mean you won't be able to alter the spacing if required (eg. if you wind the chain around something)
Coasters/Mug Mats: Use them as coasters during the the Autumn months.
Wall Hanging: Join them in a vertical line, intermingled with seed heads, beads and anything else that's autumnal.
If you like the idea but don't crochet then replace the pumpkins with cutouts from card stock or patterned paper and tie onto a length of ribbon.
