Our neighbors are starting to decorate their houses for fall. Guess who is running behind? Yep, me. I’m not ready for summer to be over! I didn’t want to be behind the times and needed a cute door decoration that wouldn’t break the bank. I had a roll of Jack-o-lantern Halloween ribbon and a few fall supplies lying around the house. Well, okay, in storage. I dragged them out and in just a few minutes I made an adorable easy fall pumpkin wreath that blends in perfectly with the season.
I used a straw wreath which I found at a thrift store for around $1, five small pumpkins and a small fall floral pick I found at the dollar store, and a roll of orange ribbon. Tip: You can find floral picks with small pumpkins at the dollar store. I found a couple of floral picks with three small pumpkins on each. I removed the pumpkins and they were the perfect size.
How to Make a Fall Pumpkin Wreath:
Step 1: Wrap the fall ribbon around the wreath, spacing ribbon approximately two inches apart. Cut ribbon and hot glue end into position.
Step 2: Hot glue pumpkins and floral pick into position on the bottom center of the wreath. (See picture at the top of post.)
- Glue Gun
- Straw Wreath, 12 inch or size of choice
- Small Pumpkins or Pumpkin Flower Picks
- One Roll Fall or Halloween Ribbon (I used Midori)
- Wrap ribbon around the wreath, spreading it out approximately every two inches. Glue ribbon into place. Add pumpkins and/or pumpkin picks onto desired location on wreath. Hot glue into place.
Here’s a thrifty tip: If you want to save money and still have a cute wreath you can use for Thanksgiving, wait until mid-October to buy the supplies. Many stores will be discounting their Halloween and fall crafts.
