Tips for Decorating Fall Pumpkins:

Pick a pumpkin, ribbon, and small floral picks that are pleasing to you.

Make sure you have a decent hot glue gun.

Pipe cleaners are easiest to work with when making your bows.

It helps to have sharp scissors for cutting fabric and a good wire cutter for snipping the floral picks and garland.

Once made, the pumpkins can be used year after year during the fall season.
