Easy 30 Minute Fall Pumpkin Wreath
Tomorrow is the first day of fall, and to start the season this year I wanted to create a fall pumpkin wreath that was easy and fun.
Every year my DIY repurosed fall owl door decor goes on the outside of the door, because it’s still one of my favorite projects.
But I also love having something newly created on the inside of the door.
This fall pumpkin wreath can easily be created in 30 minutes or less, once you have all your supplies ready to go.
For this quick and easy fall pumpkin wreath you’ll need some miscellaneous fall foliage, a grapevine wreath, and a handy dandy glue gun and glue sticks.
I recently ordered some craft paint supplies from Michael’s, and while shopping online I saw this fabulous grapevine pumpkin wreath form…. and I fell in love.
It’s about 16 inches across, and is grapevine on a wire wreath form.
Here in Canada this wreath cost $11.99, but I was still thrifty with my purchase. I had a 30% off coupon that was just itching to be used. I think the price might be a little cheaper in the U.S.
(NOTE: I’m not a Michael’s affiliate, I just really like this wreath form.)
I have a stash of thrifted fall foliage that I pick from for projects this time of year so I just pick what I like from what I have.
Prettifying a grapevine pumpkin wreath
This sunflower with a wire burlap bow is from the dollar store, and I used it as my focal point.
Some of the flower petals were a little wonky, but I’ll fix that as I go.
I glued two good sized sprigs of small orange berries to both sides of the sunflower bow.
I’m going for a symmetrical, but not identical, kind of look.
Adding fall foliage to pumpkin wreath
I prettied up those wonky flower petals with a little glue that let me arrange them in a nicer way.
Then I continued to glue in some leaves in various fall colors, and two yellow globe thingies.
And I tucked in a few acorns on either side.
Then I decided that I didn’t want acorns on both sides, so I added a small pine cone on the right.
And I just kept filling out the look.
To balance the size of the pine cone, I added a few more acorns on the left.
There are no rules here.
You really just do what looks good to you.
One important thing though, is to make sure that you can still see the pumpkin stem when you’re done. Even if it’s just a bit.
And here’s my fall pumpkin wreath, done in just less than 30 minutes.
If I didn’t change my mind a few times it would have been done in about 20, but creating is often about figuring out what you love as you’re going through the process.
The important thing is to have a finished project that you love.

Displaying grapevine fall pumpkin wreath
And here’s my grapevine pumpkin wreath hanging on the inside of the door. I just used a regular old finishing nail to rest it on.
I love the contrast of the fall foliage with the aqua door. The aqua really makes the colors pop.
Pumpkins are so much fun, and with the addition of a some gorgeous fall colors, they just say fall.
And like my decoupaged quilt block pumpkin, this project was so easy and a lot of fun to create.
It would be greatly appreciated if you would pin this project to your favorite Pinterest board, and also share it with your friends.
Thanks so much for reading and until next time,
