This was easier than carving. I took metallic silver spray paint and sprayed the whole pumpkin. I took regular wall paint (it was satin finish I think, something with a little shine) I took a small paintbrush and filled in lines, spaced accordingly. I then took the silver spray paint again and spritzed it to give the purple paint a little extra shimmer. I took two different purple wire ribbons (left over from my Christmas wrapping) and made 2 bows, combined them to make 1 big bow. Simple.
