Attach leaves to the pumpkin, spread some more glue on top of the leaves. Check if glue is spread out evenly and if leaves cling on properly. Leave it to dry. You can add some more glue if you see leaves starting to stick out in places.

*Bow pumpkin*

Choose colorful bow (depending on your color theme this year) and simply tie your bow around the pumpkin. This one is great, because it doesn’t damage the pumpkin and you can eat it afterwards (yeah!).You can also add/ change your bows as you please to make it more suitable for individual holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving).

Happy crafting 🙂
