Saw these for sale at grocery store for $30... Knew I could make just as well for way less!!! Easy peasy!!!
Take a real pumpkin (or fake if you prefer, I like the weight of the real ones!). Paint it metallic gold... hot glue fall leaves and a big bow made from wired floral ribbon, some really pretty with a gold/metallic edge.
Gorgeous and will last and last because they aren't cut... perfect for any decor!
I try to choose nicely shaped pumpkins with character and texture if possible, deep ridges, or even that brown bumpy texture, it all add character.
Here's a photo from last year... I'm making more tonight!!!
