Such an elegant and gorgeous design! Anything with glitter gets my vote! This basic project could go with many other options to suit your decor and taste. Perhaps paint or keep some of the pumpkins the traditional color, or add little dew drops or golden metallic leaves and wire ribbon coiled within the design. Great instructions too, this is such a pretty decor item, to keep,or give as a gift!
