After some Boston inspo last year, I made a pumpkin wreath using real pumpkins. It was beautiful, but it was sooo heavy and I had to throw it out at the end of the season.
This year, I wanted to make something that I could use again next year…and one that I could leave up through Thanksgiving…
Here is what I ended up with!
I love it!
Here is what you need…
- Grapevine Wreath (I bought mine at AC Moore. It is 18″ wide)
- Hot glue gun
- Mini faux pumpkins- the ones I bought are sold out, but these are similar
- Mini faux pumpkins and gourds
- Mini faux white pumpkins
- Ribbon/fishing string to hang
I also purchased the large light green pumpkins from Hobby Lobby.
To start, I placed the really large pumpkins, but did not glue them. Then I filled around them, gluing as I went. There is not really a method, I just fit them together, then stopped and held it up to check placement after every couple of pieces. After I got all the big pieces placed, I glued the tiny pumpkins in place.
We have not hung a storm door after painting the house yet, so I used some fishing string and looped it around the top of the wreath. I then wrapped it around a flat tack that I put in on the top of the door. You could do the same with a ribbon or even use a wreath hanger.
That’s it! Super easy- you can’t mess it up! This gorgeous thing will now stay up through Thanksgiving- even better!
Check out that super cute doormat! You can find that here.
Be sure to let me know if you make one!
