mini-pumpkin wreath...

still finishing up on some halloween decorations around my house so i can enjoy them for a little bit before taking them down.

i decided to make a wreath with mini-white pumpkins. i was happy it actually turned out as i planned. i haven't lost a pumpkin yet.

super easy. it probably took me 20 minute max.

supplies
mini pumpkins [enough fill your wreath] [yes, they are real pumpkins... choose the color you like!]
wire wreath forms from craft store [found near flower supplies]
ribbon (color and size of your choice, i used black)
hot glue gun/glue

directions
i basically just wrapped ribbon around the wire frame covering it completely, and glued in in place.
then, i hot glued each pumpkin one (you really have to use a lot of glue, don't be afraid to be generous with it) by one around it. tied a ribbon around the top to hang it from.

voila!

I've been looking for a simple but cute Fall wreath, and this is perfect. I love it! Would you mind if I shared it on my blog, Petit Elefant?

Okay so I tried to make this. It didn't turn out as well because my pumpkins are now in a bucket right below the hanging black ribboned & hot glue wreath.

But I did have fun making it! Thank you for sharing your tutorial! ^_^
