Dollar Tree Pumpkin Wreath Form
Here is something a little different for your front door for Fall, Thanksgiving or even Halloween! A pumpkin wreath made from a dollar tree pumpkin wreath form, well technically thats TWO pumpkin wreath forms!!
The base for this project are these dollar tree pumpkin wreath forms. Before you put your 2 forms together. First, trace around one of the forms onto piece of black foam core. I use a silver sharpie which shows up great on black. You don’t need to trace around the stem. Cut out the shape and then put it aside until later.
Pumpkin Wreath Forms
Attach the two wreath forms together using thin craft wire. I applied wire to both outside edges, the bottom, and the tip and either side of the stem. I used craft wire from the dollar store, Next, you will need to spread apart the wires along the ribs. This is where you will be adding fabric, so make them as wide as you want them to be and then even them out.
The fabric that I used was from the dollar store, specifically dollarama. It is very sheer and has these really pretty metallic maple leaves on it. I’m not usually a big fan of orange, but this is such a beautiful shade. Cut the fabric into strips. Honestly I didn’t even measure it. You could use any sheer fabric here.
Use hot glue to attach one end of the fabric to the wire frame. Then just wind the fabric around the rib of the pumpkin. Glue it into place on the finished end, and trim any excess. Once all of the ribs were covered in fabric go back over and glue down any areas that need it. Do any gluing on the back side of the ribs.
After all of the ribs are covered in fabric, the next step is to add rhinestones along the edges. I used smaller ones here and a slightly larger one around the outside edges. These are adhesive and come in strips. These are from Dollar Tree. So it’s just a matter of peeling them off and sticking them to the edges of the fabric and aligning the ends so that it looks like one continuous piece. These stick well to the fabric, so I didn’t need to use additional glue.
Now we attach the foam core backing to the wreath. It should just fit right into the back of the wreath form. If it doesn’t, just trace around the edge and trim off any excess to make it fit. I didn’t need to glue mine in place, as it fit snuggly inside the pumpkin wreath form. You could change up the colour if you like. I did the other side of the backing in gold paint, but I really think it popped on the black background.
For the outside edges I used a slightly larger rhinestone. Again these are adhesive and come in strips. For the areas between the fabric covered ribs, I broke up the rhinestones. Originally, I didn’t use any additional adhesive, but after I hung it on the front door, I found that the rhinestones on the edges, didn’t stick well to the metal of the wreath form once it got cold, so I went back and added a bit of hot glue after. I just glued the gems on either end of the strips. It’s not necessary to glue down the entire strip.
To top this pumpkin wreath off, we just need to tie up up with a bow! To make the bow, I went with a pretty orange polka dot wire edge ribbon that I picked up at dollar tree. I just tied a standard bow. You know the kind you make when you are tying your shoes. Once the bow was done to my satisfaction I attached it part way up the stem using hot glue.
Hang it up
To hang the wreath I used a piece of thin craft wire and attached it to the upper edges of the pumpkin wreath form and attached it to a wreath hanger on the front door. It looks really good at night time, when the light reflects off of the metallic leaves and the rhinestones.
So Many Occasions
This is the perfect fall wreath! But you can also use it for Thanksgiving or Halloween!!! Yay – it’s three wreaths in one! And if you are looking for a scarier Halloween wreath, I have one for you!
