I love decorating my home and in particular crafting items for each season. And this wreath is one of the most favorite things I have made for my home. While I actually made this last year, I have gotten so many compliments on it that I figured I would share it with you.
It is pretty simple to make …all you need are mini putka pods (I bought 3 bags to have my pick of putka pods, but only 2 are really necessary), a foam wreath form (I used a 10 inch one, which they don’t have on Amazon currently but you always use a different size or look for a 10 inch one at your local craft store…similar one here) and a hot glue gun/hot glue!
Mini Pumpkin Wreath
10 or 12 inch foam wreath form (I used a 10 inch one)
Approximately 8 cups of dried putka pods
a hot glue gun and glue sticks
ribbon and scissors
- Preheat hot glue gun.
- Adhere putka pods to form with hot glue. Press in gently. Then add another putka pod right next to it with hot glue and repeat like so…
- Once you have covered the wreath form with one layer of putka pods start adding putka pods with hot glue over the existing white spots to create a second layer. Let dry.
- Once dry, cut ribbon and hang up your wreath!
Note: You do not necessarily need to put putka seeds on the back of your wreath unless people will see the back (i.e. if you hang it on a mirror). This wreath is best kept indoors, however if you do want to put it outside I would make sure it is in a covered awning.
Happy crafting and happy almost Fall!
P.S. This wreath was inspired by BHG (one of my favorite magazines EVER). However I can no longer find the link online.
