Yarn Pumpkin Fall Wreath


Yarn Pumpkin Wreath {KraftyKat}

It’s been a while since I’ve made a wreath and even though I already have a fall wreath on my front door, I have still been wanting to make one.  I bought a plain grapevine wreath a while back with the intention of gathering lots of natural materials outside to fill it with.  Then, when I was making yarn apples the other day, it occurred to me that I could make pumpkins in the same way and I just knew that they would be so cute on a wreath.

The little pumpkins themselves were so fun and easy to make while watching tv.  I just used a bag of cotton balls and wrapped each one with orange yarn.  I used one big roll of yarn and one bag of 100 cotton balls and a dollar store grapevine wreath.  After making the pumpkins, I stuck little twigs in the tops to make the pumpkin stems.  Then I just hot glued them to the wreath.

I had a few left over pumpkins that I just put up on my shelf.  Such a simple and adorable little decoration.

I took down my apple wreath and put up the new yarn pumpkin wreath to see how it would look.  It looks fine here but it will probably end up on the front door or maybe even in the dining room.

I am just crazy about my little pumpkins and my new wreath!  It will be perfect for Thanksgiving!

  15. I can't believe you used cotton balls, I was picturing tons of expensive foam balls when I clicked over from Someday Crafts. Brilliant solution!
