I love using metal leaf and this DIY Fall Pumpkin took less than thirty minutes to make. Join me to make some new fall pumpkin decor.
I was excited to make pumpkins for this blog group and I went through a lot of different ideas. You might have seen the copper pumpkins I made previously. These pumpkins are different and I really like them. They are so fun and could obviously be made in any color!
I almost made pink pumpkins for the DIY but I decided to try a combination of two colors. Pink and copper are my favorites and I absolutely love the way the metal leaf looks on these white pumpkins.
I wanted to point out the two tall candlesticks in the back of this photo. I made them with copper leaf. You can find the DIY here.
Here is a close-up of the two pumpkins I made. I think I am going to have to make a few more. I really like them!
Fall Pumpkins with Pink and Copper Leaf
I used two different pumpkins for this craft and you can pretty much use any kind, color, or size. These are similar but different!

How to Make Fall Pumpkins with Pink and Copper Leaf
Mona Lisa water-based sealer (optional)
With a brush, cover the pumpkins with the metal leaf adhesive. Let the pumpkin sit for about twenty minutes which will allow for the adhesive to get sticky.
While wearing the gloves, carefully remove one piece of foil and gently lay it on top of the pumpkin. Do not worry if it isn’t perfect and if some of it doesn’t stick, that is fine too. The goal is to have an uneven application of the metal leaf. So don’t worry about anything!
Look at the close-up below. These are not perfect by any means!
Alternate between the copper and the pink sheets. One thing you might want to do is try not to have too many perfect straight edges of the foil. I just rubbed it with my finger in some places so that there weren’t too many straight edges.
Continue applying the foil so that you have about 75% of the pumpkin covered.
Take a dry brush and gently brush on top of the pumpkin to remove any stray pieces of foil.
Apply the sealer if desired.
Pink and copper leaf looks so great together! It is so easy to make and just gorgeous.
