can one do the following?

For $X$ a closed manifold, and $v$ a vector field with isolated zeros, remove small disks around the zeros and then glue them back in, but now with the boundary spheres glued by the negative of the Hopf winding degree – such that the resulting new manifold has vanishing Euler characteristic? Or something like this?
