My Mom’s Valentino Pumpkin

This high-fashion pumpkin has a Valentino stole:

My mom dreamed of a pumpkin inspired by the Valentino’s cascading rosettes and ruffles we’ve been lusting after for a few years, so she twisted some fabric into rosettes (mix a few fabric textures), and added feathers and bits of lace. Try this rosette tutorial if you’d like to make your own.

Afterward, she used hot glue to attach the Valentino stole to the pumpkin.

I think it’s an excellent translation

And here’s a sneak peek at the next pumpkin coming in my series: metallic color-blocking. I can’t wait to show you the rest.
