Here's a tutorial on how to make a polymer clay pumpkin pin...

You will need the following supplies...

1 package orange clay
1 package brown clay
1 package white clay
1 package green clay
1 package yellow clay
wire (black or brown)
black seed beads

Roll an oval of orange clay (approx. 1 inch)

Use a toothpick or metal slicer to make lines in pumpkin
Break a piece of a toothpick off and insert into top of pumpkin
A pinch of brown clay over the toothpick forms the stem
Wrap the wire around the toothpick and insert into stem

Roll out an oval of white clay and attach to side of pumpkin, with the narrow part facing down. Curl this piece up near the bottom. Made an oval for the head and attach, curling the top out.
Make a small white tube and attach to body and have it touch pumpkin. Add a tiny ball for the nose. Use a toothpick to form a small open mouth.

Roll out two small white balls of clay for the pumpkin eyes. Add two tiny seed beads for the pupils. Use orange or red for the nose.

Use the bottom of a straw to indent a smile into the clay.

Make two green tear drops and attach to stem, press toothpick into leaf.

Roll 5 yellow tear drops to form flower. Place small ball of brown into center and press.

Back at 265 for twenty minutes. Let cool. Attach a pin back with E6000 glue or super glue gel.
