Perfect Pumpkin Wreath

Perfect Pumpkin Wreath

I was provided a free wreath form from my friends at FloraCraft to make this wreath.  As always, all opinions are 100% my own.  

I’ve been in a wreath making mood lately.  With the holidays approaching, I’m also getting quite eager for a couple of Christmas wreaths I’ve got brewing in my mind.  For now, I’m excited to share a fun wreath for Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving all rolled into one.

To make your own pumpkin wreath, you’ll need:

1/4 yard orange burlap

Styrofoam wreath form {FloraCraft}

orange jute twine

tan jute twine

dark brown jute wrapped floral wire

green curly floral stem

floral pins

straight pins

hot glue gun/glue sticks

To start, I cut the orange burlap into strips and secured it around the entire wreath form using a couple of floral pins {the ones that are u-shaped}.  I also used the floral pins to attach the curly green “vine” to the top of my pumpkin.

To hide the stem of the green “vine”, I wrapped a section at the top with regular jute twine.

I then began to roll small and larger flat spirals with the orange jute twine.  To do this, I simply wrapped it around and around and put a dot of hot glue every once in a while to secure the shape.

I alternated pinning small and large spirals around the front edge of the wreath.  I also added a couple of brown floral wire curls to the top of the pumpkin as well, to act as part of the stem off the regular jute twine stem.

Soon I had this super cute pumpkin wreath, perfect for Fall!  I’m planning to leave this one up until Thanksgiving {one holiday at a time, right?!}.

What’s on your front door now?  Is it Fall inspired or are you already prepping for the Christmas holidays?
