DIY Monday: Mesh Pumpkin Wreath

Happy Fall, y’all! This is one of my favorite times of year to Decorate! Decorate! Decorate! The changing of the leaves, the crisp cool air and the Fall nights growing longer and longer with each passing day. The sheer thought is getting me all gitty and excited inside. Oh how I love this time of year. Anywho, Today my friends I discovered a niffy craft idea of a pumpkin wreath made out of mesh. This wreath would transition perfectly on any door from the beginning of Fall all the way to Thanksgiving. So without further a due here’s how you can make one or two or three of your very own. Happy Crafting!

Here’s What You Need:

two rolls of 4″ orange mesh (found at Hobby Lobby, or this website)
one roll of 4″ black mesh for the stem
one roll of green 4″ mesh for the leaves
large embroidery hoop (however big you want your wreath to be)
2 packages of orange pipe cleaners (and wire cutters to cut them in half)
latch hook canvas (found at Hobby Lobby)

We attached our latch hook canvas to the hoop using wire and trimmed the ends to give us a base for our pumpkin.

Roll approximately 10 inches of mesh and cut. Make this into a little roll.

Twist 1/2 of a orange pipe cleaner around the middle of your roll to create a bow-type object. Make sure the pipe cleaner is super tight. Then, thread the pipe cleaner through the holes in your canvas and twist on the back. You won’t need to put one through every single hole, just keep adding to the wreath until it fills in.

Keep going, you’re almost done.

When your wreath is as full as you’d like, add the stem and leaves with the rest of your mesh. Voila! Hang on your door and enjoy 🙂

  5. Love love love your pumpkin wreath. This is the cutest one I have ever seen and your tutorial is so easy to follow! I am going to try to make one this weekend. One question…did I understand you to say, each roll you make into a bow-like piece is 10 inches of mesh? That seems like a lot of mesh for just one bow piece. Any help you can give is appreciated.
