1. Paint the pumpkin with two coats of Inca Gold paint using the foam paintbrush. Using the round brush, add gold highlights using Sahara Gold.

2. Cut the Halloween papers into strips that are long enough to fit down the side of the pumpkin. Coat the back of the paper with Mod Podge, position the paper on the pumpkin, smooth with your fingers, top-coat the paper with more Mod Podge. Continue this until the pumpkin has paper going all the way around.

3. Hot glue burlap ribbon from the stem of the pumpkin, down the edge and to the bottom.

4. Create a large bow and hot glue it to the top of the pumpkin.

Tip: Prevent hot glue burns by wearing Mod Podge Finger Caps when you are working with hot glue.
