Achieve The look for less- Pumpkin Fall Wreath

When it comes to Fall decorations, organic elements like pumpkins, pinecones, and florals never really go out of style. I try to avoid trendy decor that I may only use for one season in order to save money and reduce the amount of "stuff" I have to store off season. This classic pumpkin wreath perfectly fits the criteria and can be styled inside your home on on your front door for Fall.

I saw this simple elegant pumpkin wreath at Pottery Barn this year and loved the classic style, but not the $89 price tag. So my friends, what do I always say? "When we can't buy, we DIY!"

This simple Fall wreath is created with a basic grapevine wreath, adorable paper pumpkins, and hot glue. That's it! It took me less than 10 minutes and it probably would take less if I didn't need to hold a few pumpkins in place which the glue hardened!

NOTE: I found my pumpkins at Home Goods in the store for $7.99 for 12. If you can't find them in store, these are almost identical.

In fact, this pumpkin wreath is so easy to make, it doesn't even require a full tutorial. Simply hot glue your pumpkins around the edges of your wreath to make 1, 2, or 3 concentric rings depending upon your taste!

Money saving tips for wreath making

If you have an old wreath you no longer use, consider taking all of the florals/items off of it and reusing the wreath form to save money! I used the grapevine wreath from a fall DIY I made almost 10 years ago for this one!

Look at thrift stores for wreath forms too! Instead of $10-$20 for a grapevine wreath at the craft store, you'll spend about $4-$5!

Maybe you have small decorative gourds from a previous season or you find some while thrifting - consider painting them to give them a new life and make this wreath!
