1. Painting the Pumpkins
To start your holiday crafting project, grab a bunch of foam pumpkins. The color doesn't matter, we are going to spray paint them.
Remove the stems from the foam pumpkins, we will reattach them when the paint is dry.
Next, grab some black, silver, and white spray paint. Lay the pumpkins in a box.
Now, spray paint all the pumpkins in these varying colors.
Allow ample time for the paint to dry completely. Once your pumpkins are dry, bring them inside and reattach the stems.
2. Preparing the Base
Now, let's create the base for your DIY pumpkin wreath.
Grab two pool noodles and tape the ends together using duct tape.
Then, take the other two ends and duct tape those together as well, forming a giant pool noodle wreath form.
3. Attaching the Pumpkins
It's time to add your painted pumpkins to the wreath base. Start applying the pumpkins with hot glue in clusters around the noodle circle.
Leave about six inches of space between the clusters. Then carry on filling the areas between the clusters with the pumpkins, making sure to leave spaces for the deco mesh.
Continue this process until you've covered the entire wreath.
4. Adding Deco Mesh
To add some extra flair to your Halloween project, grab deco mesh in black and silver.
Layer the silver on top of the black, bunching it up to create a textured effect.
Use hot glue to secure the mesh into the gaps between the pumpkins. This will give your wreath a full look.
5. Final Touches
For the finishing touches on your pumpkin mesh wreath, attach small black skulls throughout the wreath using hot glue.
