Fall is officially here this week so it’s time to put away all of the summer decorations and break out with everything that yells horror or harvest. This afternoon I decided to make a quick, easy and most importantly inexpensive fall pumpkin wreath. This wreath came together in under half an hour and is quite cute if I do say so myself. The nice thing is that this can easily be a family project with help from the kids because the felt pumpkins I used to decorate came with sticky backs so once deal with the hot glue gun you can call the kiddie sin to decorate. I love that this wreath is more about the fall harvest than haunting the neighbors. This makes it a great wreath that can easily carry you right through Halloween and Thanksgiving.
This wreath was not only easy to make but it was also so unbelievably inexpensive to make that you will want to make one for everyone you know. The foam wreath came from the dollar store. The burlap I already had on hand from this Fourth of July wreath but it had cost me under $4 at Walmart. The ribbon I used I found on clearance at my local Jo-Ann store for a mere $.50 and the felt pumpkins were eight in a pack for $2.99 but I used a 50% off coupon. So all in all this was super cheap compared to what you would buy a fall pumpkin wreath for at a craft fair or someplace similar.
1 10″ foam wreath
fall colored ribbon
hot glue gun
Using the hot glue gun you’ll need to glue the end of the burlap ribbon to the back side of the foam wreath. Then begin wrapping it around the wreath adjusting as necessary until you have covered the entire thing. Cut off the excess and glue the cut end to the back of the wreath.
Next you will arrange your pumpkins the way you want them on the wreath. If they are self sticking like mine were then go ahead and stick them on. If they are not or you want to make sure they really stick then go ahead and add some hot glue to the back of them and press into place. Finally, cut about a yard of ribbon, fold it in half and place behind the top of the wreath with the loop at the top. Pull the two loose ends of ribbon through the looped end and adjust the ribbon so that it lays nicely. Finally, knot the loose ends together to hang from a wreath hanger or a Command adhesive hook.
Now you have a beautiful fall pumpkin wreath on your door to welcome all of your visitors.
