Circle Pumpkin Wreath

Circle Pumpkin WreathEvery once in a while I get a harebrained idea that I can’t get out of my head…as was the case with this Circle Pumpkin Wreath. It started when I made my Mini Pumpkin Wreath. I attached three little pumpkin gourds to a wreath and called it a day.

How to make a mini pumpkin wreathI kept thinking though that it would be so cool if the whole wreath was a circle of pumpkins. I was pretty sure my wire method would work so I decided to give it a try before my pumpkins turned to mold. I gathered all the little pumpkins from around my house. 

I repurposed the first pumpkin wreath by taking off the burlap bow and bittersweet but left on the rosemary garland. Here is my how-to on wiring the pumpkins to the wreath.

How to wire a pumpkin to a wreathI laid the wreath on my living room floor and put the pumpkins around the circle to make sure I had enough and that they fit. I then started wiring. I timed myself (seriously, I’m not kidding) and it took 20 minutes to wire on 16 pumpkins. Since I had stacked 2 grapevine wreaths to create more depth, I wired them together in a few more places. The pumpkins made the wreath pretty heavy but it’s all secured and ready to hang in there until Christmas!

Circle Pumpkin Wreath Even if you’ve only followed my blog for a short time, I’m sure you’ve picked up on the fact that I’m in love with wreaths. I enjoy being able to repurpose them and come up with new ideas for the seasons. I joked a while back on my Facebook page that my kids just might engrave this on my tombstone: “She made a dang good wreath.” It got more likes than anything I’ve posted for months. Ha!

I got my pumpkins in the produce section of my grocery store. They came in a mesh bag and I got 7 or 8 pumpkins for $4.99. I bought 2 bags back in September and they are still going strong. The ones on this wreath should be fine because I prepared them before I put them on the wreath.

  6. Hi Ann, the wreath is sweet. I love all things pumpkin. I have not been blogging much this summer as my kiddo went to university in South Korea and I just have not been feeling well. I am trying to get it together and will stop by. Thank you for thinking of me, Olive

  7. Grace @ sense and simplicity says:

    So cute. I was thinking fake ones would be good so you could use the wreath again next year – or are you obsessed with making something new every year, which just might be for someone who “makes a dang good wreath” ;)

  8. It’s fantabulous, Ann! And, I love how it pops against your beautiful black front door!

  9. Anne Boykin says:

  10. That is one beautiful wreath Ann! We always joke around here about what they’re going to say about me when I’m gone… I guess that’s a good thing, we will leave a good story! LOL

  11. I use a product in my classroom called “Twisteez” it’s wire and comes in all colors you could even imagine.

  12. I love that wreath, Ann!

  13. Love your idea, electrical telephone wire comes in colors.

  14. A very clever idea for a fall wreath.
    Enjoy your weekend!!

  15. Jane @ Cottage at the Crossroads says:

    Well, I agree with your kids. You can make a dang good wreath!

  16. So adorable Ann! I love wreaths but never seem to get around to creating one – one of these days!

  17. Ricki Jill Treleaven says:

    How totally cute, Ann! :D

  18. Looks great! I’m sure somebody somewhere has colored wire! Is the greenery real or faux? I can’t tell what it is? ;)

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Donnamae! The greenery is faux. I got it at Hobby Lobby in the garland section. I thought it looked like rosemary so that’s why I bought it!

  19. Nana Diana says:

    That is really, really cute. What a sweet idea-I love it. Yes, you can buy orange wire and copper wire would work, too. Here is the link-it’s a bridal place and I have bought wire from them in the past-

  23. Beautiful! What about using copper wire? It would blend in beautifully!

  24. I love the wreath…if I only had the time to do everything that I love I’d have the prettiest home around,:)
    I’ll be at the Halloween parade today for the grandgirls, it’s sunny but a little chilly!

  25. Beautiful, those pumpkins are so perfect I thought they were fakes. You are a wreath God you know:)

    1. Ann Drake says:

      This made me laugh…thank you for that!

  26. I love your ideas! GREAT wreath!
    Happy Saturday to you.

  27. What if you used rusty wire?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Oh yes that would be a great idea…thank you! I thought about just regular silver wire but thought the green would be better. Never thought of rusty!
