This easy autumn pumpkin project can be done in under 2 hours. Everything with the exception of the pumpkin itself was bought at the dollar store. You may be lucky enough to find a pumpkin you like at the dollar store but I didn't. This pumpkin came from Michaels.
Good news! No paint needed. Doesn't matter what color your pumpkin starts out as, you won't need to paint it. This Easy Leafy Pumpkin can be kept for years.
Start with any pumpkin of your choice, no need to paint it. Different leaves are nice and add interest rather than using the same leaves throughout the project.
Hot glue all your leaves facing downwards. Start at the bottom and work up towards the stem.
You’ll need at least two bunches of leaves. I bought two different bunches, (not all the same leaves) I used every single one of them. All leaves, grasses, pine cones and twine are hot glued on.
I have NO idea what those grassy looking things are... looks like faux Hameln Grass, but I found that at the dollar store too.

Add some twine and a couple of pine cones and you're done. Very easy indeed!
