Even though Halloween is now over, these decorative pumpkins are the perfect transitional decor for this time of year. When it is too early for Christmas decorations, these gilded gourds bring some glamor to the home. The gold leaf pumpkins are a stunning addition if you are hosting Thanksgiving this year, or any other gatherings this fall.
Created by Jana at the Free People blog, the decorative pumpkins craft requires any sized white pumpkins, black paint, gold leaf, metal leaf liquid adhesive, paint brush and scissors.
Elegant and eye-catching, the pumpkins make a beautiful centerpiece when placed on a table. You can also keep them outside on the front stoop if it is covered. The smoke bomb effect is totally optional.
