Gold leaf pumpkins

I really love decorating for fall and Christmas.  It's my absolute favorite time of year.  I love pumpkins, apples, cider, trees, wreaths, lights.  All of it! I got this project over from cupcakes and cashmere.  I'm going to say I ended up not being crazy about this.  Paint and spray paint is easier and I think comes out nicer to be honest.  The gold leaf was very hard to work with, and the spray glue was a complete tacky disaster.  And it did not come out as polished as I would have liked.  But it was an interesting thing to do.

You will need gold leaf (found at Michaels or amazon)
Spray glue
A foam brush
Small pumpkins
Painters or sketchers tape
