How to Make a Bundt Pan Pumpkin Wreath
Do you love wreaths on your front door as much as I do? This bundt pan pumpkin wreath takes just minutes to make and is so easy to do!
It's especially great if you find an old bundt pan at a thrift store - or have one at home!
I love this wreath because it sort of looks like a pumpkin, but definitely looks like Fall! It’s kind of like a classy version of a pumpkin that’s not too orange and goes with a more subtle autumn color scheme.
That’s not to say that I don’t like the bundt pan spray painted a bright orange, too. I’m kind of torn as to which version I like better. So pick one that makes you happy!
How to Make a Pumpkin Bundt Pan Wreath
- 10” bundt pan
- Spray Paint (I used Rustoleum Champagne Mist)
- Pre-made 6″ burlap bow (or make your own wreath bow with my easy tutorial)
- 2” white foam pumpkin
- Faux fall flowers (a variety of about 10-12 stems)
- Two types of ribbon (I used 2 complimentary shades and styles)
- Ribbon for hanging
- Scraps of ribbon for embellishments (optional)
- Hot glue gun and sticks
- 3” round of cardstock
Spray a thin layer of paint to completely cover the outside of the bundt pan. There is no need to paint inside the pan. Let dry completely. If needed, add another layer of paint, but you shouldn’t have to with the primer and paint combo.
Add extra detail to your pre-made bow by gluing on pretty ribbon. Cut pieces of ribbon that are the same length of the loops of the bow (no need to take apart the bow). Hot glue the ribbon on each loop, making sure the ends are tucked in the knot in the center and can’t be seen.
Though it doesn’t show it in this picture, I also added a thinner piece of ribbon on top of this ribbon for a double layer effect.
Make the lush floral centerpiece for the top of the wreath. It’s easier to glue all of the flowers to a cardboard circle, rather than to the wreath itself. This way they won’t flop over.
Cut each flower stem to about 1 1/2 inches (doesn’t have to be exact). Glue the flowers to the cardboard, bending the stems as necessary to get them to lay flat on the cardboard circle. Play around with the flowers until you get a combination that you like before you begin gluing. Start with your biggest flowers first. Glue your foam pumpkin onto the cardboard circle. Then fill in the gaps with your smaller flowers.
If you would like, you can add some loops of ribbon in with the flowers, too. Cut about 3 inch sections of ribbon (can be one type or a variety of colors) and make into a loop. Tuck the ribbon in-between flowers and hot glue the cut ends down on the cardboard.
You can also glue ribbon loops to the back of the cardboard circle, too, to stick out around the edges.
It’s time to put everything together. First, glue the back of the cardboard circle to the front of the bow, just underneath all of the loops. You want it to be really lush and full.
Cut a long piece of ribbon to hang the wreath with. Consider where you want the wreath and how long the wreath hanger will need to be. Loop the ribbon around the center of the bundt pan and bring the edges up. Tie a knot with the cut edges.
Attach the bow to the bundt pan wreath. You can hot glue the base of the bow to the very top of the bundt pan. However, if you are considering reusing the bundt pan for cooking or another type of wreath, you could attach the bow to the wreath hanger instead (just be sure to secure the flower bunch firmly to the ribbon with a lot of hot glue so that it doesn’t flop over).
This wreath is so simple to make you’ll have plenty of time to try some of my other fall crafts, too!
