Fall White Pumpkin Wreath Tutorial

In this post: Fall White Pumpkin Wreath Tutorial. A super easy and inexpensive wreath idea to bring a touch of Autumn to your front door!

When the seasons change and I begin fluffing my house, at some point I usually get an email from my daughter listing her own fluffing needs and wants. Most of the time they are simple things like a new doormat or something for her mantel. Occasionally she asks for a new wreath for her front door and that’s when I get excited. We all know about my wreath obsession and it doesn’t take much to get the creative juices flowing! This is her most recent request from Williams-Sonoma. Retail price is $129.95.

I liked the orange pumpkins but Elizabeth requested white, so that’s what I used. Also, I couldn’t find faux maple leaves that I liked, so I bought leaf sprays that were a softer shade. I used the picture as inspiration but didn’t copy it exactly. Makes things a little more interesting!

Fall White Pumpkin Wreath Tutorial

What you need:

  • 18 – 22 in. grapevine wreath
  • 2 sprays or 1 garland of fall leaves
  • white pumpkins with picks
  • florist wire

Here are what the pumpkins look like. They are literally white pumpkins with a pick sticking out from the bottom. (Source links will be at the end.)

Put the wreath flat on a work surface or the floor. If you are using leaf sprays, stick the first one into the left side of the wreath and loosely attach the leaves along the bottom of the wreath with florist wire. Stick the second spray into the right side and attach the leaves along the top of the wreath. If you are using a garland, attach it to the wreath in four places with florist wire.

At this point if you can, hang up the wreath. It will be much easier to place the pumpkins. Stick the pumpkin picks into the wreath randomly until you have filled the wreath. I left gaps between the pumpkins (like our inspiration pic) but you could place them close together for a more controlled look. Make a hanger out of florist wire and attach to the back. 

Not including the trip to Hobby Lobby, from start to finish this took 15 minutes to make. It’s super easy. It’s also super cheap compared to the Williams-Sonoma version! Everything was on sale and the grand total was around $30.00. I already had florist wire so I didn’t have to buy any.

I could not find any white pumpkins online. (I looked and looked.) I got mine at Hobby Lobby, but they should be available at most craft stores. I did find orange ones and linked to them above.

  2. Hi Ann,
    I love the fall wreath you made for your daughter! Lucky girl! Thanks for sharing. Love all your ideas.

  3. Love the wreath— so simple but very pleasing—-thanks

  4. Your wreath turned out beautiful and so easy,I’m sure your daughter was thrilled.

  5. Hello Ann, What a pretty & easy fall wreath idea! I’m sure your daughter loves it! I have a wreath stand on our fireplace hearth that I would like to start changing out each season. This looks like a good wreath to start with. Thank you, as always, for all of your wonderful ideas and providing us with the info on where to get the supplies. When I look at your wreath ‘archives’, I’m always amazed at how clean your front porch is! How do you keep it that way? I have a porch that runs along the front of our house too, but it’s always a challenge keeping the cobwebs cleared. Any suggestions on how to clean those off, especially from an aluminum ceiling and around the lanterns? If I spray the ceiling off, there are water stains on the aluminum. Thank you for your daily inspiration! Enjoy your day!

      Hi Sally! I live in a woods so for years I have had an exterminator come in the late spring. He sprays for spiders and carpenter ants. My neightbor had carpenter ants a few years ago and it was devastating. That helps quite a bit. To keep the porch clean, I use a small battery-operated blower that my dad got me a few years ago. It’s so much easier than trying to use a broom. I hose everything down with water in the spring and fall but that’s it.

      1. Hadn’t thought about an exterminator for the bugs, that’s a good idea! My husband bought a battery-operated blower a couple years ago, and I agree, so much easier to use and quicker than a broom! Enjoy your day! Cooler weather is on it’s way. I live in Michigan, and we’re ready to be done with the humidity!

  6. Beautiful white pumpkin wreath. Will pin it. Hope you saw the first show of the new season of Poldark last night.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      I did! I loved it. :)

  7. What a bargain, and I like yours much better anyway!

  8. Love the wreath Ann. Your daughter is very lucky to have such a crafty mom. I agree my favorite of yours is the snowman too! I’m going to make one for my sister. She is a snowman lover.

  9. Penny @ The Comforts of Home says:

    It turned out wonderful!!

  10. LOVE your wreaths, Ann. As yet, I have failed in my quest to source white pumpkins here in the UK, but I live in hope. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to creating something else using your fabulous tutorial. Sue x

  11. Iolanda Di Giambattista says:

    Mi piacciono molto queste idee pubblicate, le trovo raffinate, eleganti, semplici, essenziali e facili da realizzare! Grazie.

  12. Hi Ann,

    Very pretty! I love Fall wreathes too! This was a nice take with the white pumpkins. I’m sure your daughter will love it!


  13. Brenda Kula-Pruitt says:

    You sure know how to make unique and very pretty wreathes, Ann.

  14. Susan Horn says:

    LOVE, LOVE the pumpkin wreath!!! Found white pumpkins at Michaels.

  15. Marlene Stephenson says:

    You’ve made a beautiful wreath and what a great mom you are,i know your daughter is thrilled.

  16. Ann, Love, both of the pumpkin wreaths! I have a similar version, but with pears. Figured I could stretch it through the holidays with added greenery. Hopefully, that will work.
    Love your posts. Always so warm & inviting. Thank you for sharing!

  17. Elizabeth Bender says:

    You are one talented lady … just love everything you create and your recipes from both your sites.

    Thank you!

  18. Anne…..The white pumpkin wreath is just beautiful. I did like the pumpkin wreath w/white pumpkins on the left side w/the gray and white chevron striped ribbon. Found the snowman wreath so much fun. Of all the blogs I open yours, in my opinion,
    is the BEST!!!!

  19. Donna Marie says:

    I love this wreath and pinned it with the others!!!

  20. Paula Kysilka says:

    The fall wreaths are beautiful. I have been making my own for over 30 years and never buy store bought items such as this. I tear all my items apart and always manage to burn a finger or two with the glue gun but after I have finished I feel like a Martha Stewart or Ann Sutton wanna be!

  21. Janet Dsuban says:

    Thank you Ann for the beautiful posting with all the wreaths. I’m in need of “fluffing” up the house too for fall, and although I don’t consider myself very good at crafts (love baking & cooking) I do feel inspired to make the white pumpkin wreath so I will go to Michael’s today and see what they have so I can “fluff” up my front door.


  22. Peggy Renie says:

    I like your wreath much more than the WS inspiration one. Your daughter is one lucky girl to have such a talented mom.

  23. Oh, Ann, I like your version MUCH better! The WS wreath is too busy and I agree with Nancie–it has no contrast. The fact that your wreath was made for less than half price is just frosting on the cake! :-)

  24. You make it look so easy!! And it’s beautiful!

  25. what an inspiration you are. with the weather STILL so warm in California, it is hard to think FALL, but you are just the kick I need to get decorating (G)!!! XXX

  26. Beautiful wreath, Ann. The WS wreath has no contrast. Everything is So orange and So expensive! Like all the other wreath you made for your daughter. I’m especially loving your snowman wreath. I just may have to copy that one!

  27. I actually think your wreath with the white pumpkins is nicer than the more expensive one. I am also loving your snowman wreath!!!
