Autumn Leaf Pumpkin Tutorial.
To make the autumn leaf pumpkin project you will need the following supplies: (affiliate links)
- 1 pumpkin (I chose a light one because I want to use it later for a face drawn pumpkin project. You can also use a faux pumpkin.
- 1 glue stick
- some silk leaves
- wire wrapped ribbon
To start just glue on the leaves around the center of the pumpkin. You can do them in a straight row, but I like them sort of haphazardly placed so I did it that way.
Make your wire wrapped ribbon bow. I made mine with four loops since my pumpkin was not a large one. See my tutorial on making an autumn floral bow: Always the Holidays.
Tie the bow on to the stem of the autumn leaf pumpkin, fluff it up a bit, and you are done. That is all there is too it.
