Paint a large orange oval leaving about ¼” of the wood slice exposed between the bark and the paint line.
Continue from one side of the wood slice to the other, leaving some sections very lightly painted, or even unpainted for the truly worn, rustic look. Let dry completely (at least one hour).
Lightly sand sections of the “pumpkin” to accentuate the wedges you painted.
Turn the wood slice over. Again, paint an oval onto the wood slice surface, leaving a ¼” border of exposed wood all around. Paint the first coat with vertical strokes and then a second coat with horizontal strokes. Let dry completely.
Glue a curled piece of ribbon to the top of the wood slice using the hot glue gun.
Glue the stem on top of the ribbon.
Add several leaves hanging over one side of the wood slice pumpkin and then turn over and glue a few to the other side.
