Trace the leaf patterns onto tissue paper.


TIP: Cut out several leaves at the same time by layering them before tracing.  


Use Mod Podge® to attach the leaves onto the pumpkin as shown. Let dry.


Trace six triangles onto brown paper and cut out.


Paint the tips of the triangles with 14k Gold paint. Let dry. 


Make the letters "AUTUMN" out of the Mod Melts and mold.


Remove the letters and trim any excess Mod Melts from each letter with an X-ACTO® knife.


Arrange the triangles to resemble pennants of a banner and glue a letter to each one, spelling "AUTUMN". 


Cut a 12" piece of twine and make a knot at each end. Glue the pennants to the twine with craft glue.


Once dry, attach the "AUTUMN" banner across the top of the leaves on the pumpkin with Gold tacks.
