DIY pumpkin wreath



Happy Fall, y'all! Sometimes, my mom and I get super crafty, especially when we're together. Over Labor Day weekend, C and I went home to Baton Rouge to see my family and relax. Before we left, I discovered this little sucker on Pintrest and realized that I could make it for FAR cheaper than the $50 etsy asking price....

Cute, right? Cue me calling my mom, sending her the picture, and the scheming beginning. Here's how we made our own:

What you'll need:
two rolls of 4" orange mesh (found at Hobby Lobby, or this website)
one roll of 4" black mesh for the stem
one roll of green 4" mesh for the leaves
large embroidery hoop (however big you want your wreath to be)
2 packages of orange pipe cleaners (and wire cutters to cut them in half)
latch hook canvas (found at Hobby Lobby)


We attached our latch hook canvas to the hoop using wire and trimmed the ends to give us a base for our pumpkin, as seen below.


Roll approximately 10 inches of mesh and cut. Make this into a little roll, as seen below. Don't mind my fabulous hands in the picture.

Twist 1/2 of a orange pipe cleaner around the middle of your roll to create a bow-type object. Make sure the pipe cleaner is super tight. Then, thread the pipe cleaner through the holes in your canvas and twist on the back. You won't need to put one through every single hole, just keep adding to the wreath until it fills in.


Keep going, you're almost done.


When your wreath is as full as you'd like, add the stem and leaves with the rest of your mesh. Voila! Hang on your door and enjoy :)



Let me know if you have any questions (I'm not the best at step-by-step directions) or decide to make one. I'd love to see yours!
