Hi everyone, I’m Vanessa from Tried & True and I’m so excited to be back here for Spooktacular 2015! I’ve participated for the last few years and sharing an easy (and inexpensive!) wreath has become a bit of a tradition. Previous projects included glowing skulls and skeleton hands so this year I thought I would go a bit more classic with glittered pumpkins. Hope you all enjoy!
Halloween Pumpkin Wreath
- Dollar Store Foam Pumpkins
- 16.5 Gauge Rebar Tie Wire (or any other wire that is super sturdy, not floral wire!)
- Hot Glue/Hot Glue Gun
- Black/White Ribbon
- Krylon Glitter Blast – Orange Burst
Step One. I found these foam pumpkins at Dollar Tree the other day and while they’re a bit bright for my taste, they’re a perfect base for a few coats of glitter spray paint! After the paint has dried, string together on a long strip of wire in approximately the same spot on each pumpkin.
Step Two. Notice how this tutorial doesn’t use a wreath form? Absolutely not necessary when you use a strong enough wire to keep it’s shape! Just form a circle and twist tie the ends together to make your wreath. Easy, right?! I like making wreaths with this method because you can make them as big or as small as your door needs just by adjusting the number of pumpkins you use.
Step Four. Depending on the look you want, you can either add a large decorative or a simple modern bow. I love how minimal and yet so very halloween-y this black/white ribbon looked with the glitter pumpkins. Halloween and glam? Does it get any better?!
