Standing wood pumpkin I found mine here
Gather Embellishment I found mine here
DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Glorious Gold Acrylic Paint
Acrylic Paint White
Craft Brush
Glue gun and hot glue
Ribbon of your choice
Dark Stain (Optional)


Paint the pumpkin, I used a craft brush but any brush will do, allow to dry.

Using a dry brush I added a thin coat of dark stain and wiped most of it off with a wet paper towel, this will give it an aged effect. This step is completely optional, there is no right or wrong way to do this.

Using a craft brush, I painted the gather embellishment in gold.

Apply hot glue to the back of the embellishment and center it onto the pumpkin.

Add a bow to the stem.

This farmhouse slat pumpkin would make a unique and beautiful gift, or you can keep it for yourself.  Have fun with it and change up the colors to match your decor, add different wording and bows, the options are endless!
