Fall Hydrangea Pumpkin Wreath Tutorial ~ Celebrate fall with a gorgeous easy to make wreath made from orange silk hydrangea flowers and glittery pumpkins.
Fall has definitely arrived where I live. The tree leaves have already turned to brilliant reds and yellows. I noticed the Canada geese in their V-formation in the skies. The Saturday Farmer’s Market in the town I live has loads of wonderful fall vegetables for sale. Earlier today I applied the fall fertilizer on the grass and later this week I will be planting some new tulip bulbs in the garden.
I love making wreaths and have shared a couple of Fall wreaths on the blog. You may want to also check out How To Make A Fall Double Wreath. This wreath hangs on my black front door. I also made a Deco Mesh And Ribbon Fall Wreath. I have this one hanging on the pantry door in the kitchen.
I have also have been busy creating some Fall projects for indoors that I will be sharing during the next couple of weeks. I have slowly been changing the mantel above the fireplace in the living room to a Fall theme. It is being designed with leaves, branches, pumpkins and the fall colours of orange, rust and gold. As I complete each crafty project I will be sharing them on the blog.
This Hydrangea Pumpkin Wreath Tutorial is the first project in this Fall mantel decorating series. I am also excited to share that it is included in a collection of 14 other lovely fall wreaths designed by talented bloggers. At the end of this post you will find the links to for more fall wreath inspiration!
I have to admit I really enjoy putting DIY and craft tutorials together for my readers. It is my hope the instructions are clear and detailed enough for you to follow. It is also my hope the photographs are inspiring so you can make one as well but with your own personal touches. Here is the…
Fall Hydrangea Pumpkin Wreath Tutorial
- floral craft ring made from wood fibre (I used a 12” but the 18” size is also available)
- hydrangea floral bush
- glitter pumpkins
- glue gun
- scissors or wire cutter
Snip the leaves from the hydrangea floral bush. Again, arrange the leaves along the craft ring to get a sense of how many you will need with a few extra.
Snip hydrangea blossom clusters from the hydrangea bloom. I suggest arranging the snipped blossom clusters along the craft ring to get a sense of how many you will need with some extra.
Glue the snipped leaves onto the craft ring with a glue gun. Notice how there was some overlapping of the leaves. I chose not to have the leaves face but this is an option if you want the leaves to stick out from under the hydrangea flowers. I just wanted the leaves to cover the floral craft ring.
Glue the snipped hydrangea blossom clusters on top of the green leaves with a glue gun. Notice how the blossom clusters are slightly overlapped and cover the entire craft ring.
Glue the pumpkins evenly spaced on top of the hydrangea blossom clusters. Notice how I left a space at the top for the ribbon.
Add another layer of hydrangea blossom clusters in between each pumpkin. This extra layer adds more depth to the wreath and makes it look more full.
Hang the wreath with a coordinating ribbon.
Here is another beauty shot of it hanging on the mirror. How it looks with the rest of the items in my Fall themed mantel will be revealed in a few weeks.
Final Comments: This Fall Hydrangea Pumpkin Wreath is so easy to make with just a few materials. It only took me about an hour to complete and it looks fabulous hanging against the mirror.
