Creative autumn wreaths can live on and around your home before the winter strikes! Fall wreaths decorated with autumn harvest, especially pumpkins, look great on your front door or inside the house whether your taste is plain and rustic or minimal and modern.
Pumpkin Decorations Wreath Materials:
Dried small pumpkins and dried gourds
Wreath Making Directions:
- Cover the entire foam wreath with sheet moss. Apply hot glue to keep the moss stuck to the base.
- Insert florist picks into the bottom of the dried gourds and pumpkins and apply hot glue at the joint to secure. Wait until the glue cools down.
- Stick the pumpkins and gourds into the wreath in an alternative order or any sequence you like. Apply hot glue at the connection so that they are tightly secured at the joint. Cover the entire front side of the wreath with gourds and pumpkins. No need to cover the backside unless you’re going to hang it in front of a mirror.
- Now, fill in with putka pods and more moss and secure them with glue. These dried seed pods look exactly like tiny pumpkins but don’t deteriorate like real pumpkins, which make them quite fitting to be an autumn wreath prop.
- Create a loop with a long piece of burlap ribbon so that it remains at the eye level even after hanging at the top edge of the door. Adjust the length of the loop if you’re going to hang it from somewhere else.
You can use the leftover mini pumpkins from Halloween decorations fall wreath crafting project. With pumpkins, you can combine all of the glories fall has to offer such as colorful leaves, mums, daisies, pinecones, etc.
