This may just be the most beautiful pumpkins I have ever seen! Hand woven out of velvet, the pumpkin is then stuffed with lentils to give it the perfect shape and weight. It stands perfectly. But my favorite part? The stem of the pumpkin is an actual pumpkin stem! WHAT?!? Exactly, each pumpkin is a one of a kind treasure. Create the most beautiful display and know that you are empowering an artisan with a much needed job so they are able to provide for their families. 

Dimensions: small 3.5 x 2 inches, medium 4 x 3 inches, large 5.5 x 4.5
