Well, I had no idea until yesterday where the original image came from, but I knew I loved it
and I had to have it for my front door!
I recreated it for less than $20.00 with items on sale from Hobby Lobby.
*wreath (I used grapevine, but straw may work better)
*moss (first round: I used peat moss, but re-covered with spanish moss-spanish worked better).
* small pumpkins (I used real, but recommend fake)
* floral wire (if you use the real pumpkins)
Step 1: Cover the wreath with the moss, glue it down as you go with hot glue.
This step would be super easy if you used the fake pumpkins with the stick, but I of course made the project harder on myself by using real pumpkins.
Poke two holes all the way through the pumpkin and feed the floral wire through. Twist the floral wire together at the bottom of the pumpkin.
Step 4: Secure the pumpkin(s) to the wreath.
Feed the floral wire through the grapevine wreath, and twist to secure the pumpkin to the wreath.
*I only used one pumpkin on my wreath because being real, they are 1) pretty heavy and 2) a little larger than the pumpkins in the 1st wreath image.
Thank goodness I was able to cover the large growth with the spanish moss.
If you’re not in the mood to DIY your wreath, the original wreath (which I found on pinterest) you can buy from Two Inspire You, on Etsy.
