Pumpkin Fall Wreath DIY

4 Materials
2 Hours

This fall wreath DIY is a fun one, because it’s different. A bit non-traditional. It’s also fun because there are so many ways you can take this tutorial and use it to construct a completely different looking wreath! Endless options!

I’ve been itching to make a fall wreath like this for a long time, and this year I finally made it happen! Wreaths are such a great way to welcome in a new season or special holiday. They are the first thing people see when they walk up to your door, and they also add great appeal used throughout the home. Wreaths are truly a cornerstone to home decor!

And this one, well I may be biased but I think it packs a lot of wow!


Who else loves to buck the norm every once in awhile and do things a bit differently? I’m all for traditional fall colors: oranges, fire reds, yellows and browns. But, isn’t it also just the best to switch things up entirely? It’s what makes me giddy with each changing season. Do I want to go with the totally acceptable traditional decor, or do I want to play a bit and do a different color scheme? The options are endless!

Whatever you decide to do this fall, you can easily take this wreath from blues and purples, to whatever your heart desires! Even switch out the pumpkins and use hearts and cupids in place for valentines or another holiday! See what I’m saying about options? 😉

What you’ll need:

  • Spray-paint in colors of your choice (at least 3-4 different colors) 
  • Small mini pumpkins and gourds (I found mine for half off at  Michaels
  • Matching floral (This is totally optional, but I loved it as a filler)
  • Wooden hoop

    love the idea but colors a bit to springy for me; what if same colors in jewel tones? And yes I’m most likely going to do

    How did you attach the pumpkins and gourds to the hoop? Did you glue them to each other and then wire them on? Beautiful!

    I have a lilac front door and these colors would be so pretty. I’m definitely doing this project! Thanks for sharing.

    Love this project! Such a creative, beautiful change to the traditional Fall wreath colors. Even after spray painting the pumpkins and squash with the non-Fall colors, you can still see that the objects are clearly of an autumn harvest ~ the Fall vibe is still there and looks absolutely gorgeous!

    Beautiful project and thank you for inspiring and sharing!
