With a touch of creativity, a pinch of resourcefulness, and a dash of Dollar Tree magic, you’ll soon have a stunning seasonal centerpiece to adorn your front door or spruce up your home decor.
So, let’s dive into this whimsical autumn adventure together and unlock the secrets to crafting a pumpkin wreath that will surely leave everyone in awe!
The first thing you’ll want to do is buy a pumpkin, wire wreath form from Dollar Tree. These are large and perfect to craft with this fall season.
You’ll also need six and a half nautical ropes from Dollar Tree.
We are going to wrap the wreath form with the nautical rope in a basket weave style. Start by hot gluing one end of a rope to one bottom corner of the wreath form.
Then, continue to weave in and out each nautical rope, hot gluing, and cutting as needed.
Once the entire wreath form is covered, free-hand a larger stem for the pumpkin using foam core from Dollar Tree. I made mine about 8 inches tall.
Then, cut with an exacto knife or a blade knife.
Add hot glue to the bottom of it
And attach it to the front of the wire stem on the wreath form.
Wrap the new stem with ribbon of choice. I used burlap ribbon and hot glued it in place.
You can add any decor on it. I chose to stack three different bows on top of each other, hot gluing and tying as needed. I made two bows using fall ribbon from Dollar Tree and topped it off with a pre-made bow from Dollar Tree.
You can add flowers and anything else you’d like.
And that’s it! What do you think? This is such a beautiful wreath for fall!
