Melissa from 320 Sycamore shares a tutorial for a beautiful fall wreath that deviates a little from the typical assortment of brightly colored leaves.
Melissa glued moss to a wreath form she’d salvaged from her neighbor’s garbage the previous year and then added lots of little pumpkins.
The icing on the cake is the burlap ribbon she used to hang it from her door. This wreath will have you reminiscing of family trips to the pumpkin patch!
This one may not hold up well to rain and snow, but if you have a protected entrance to your home it should be fine.
Melissa used hot glue to secure all the little pumpkins. This may not be a good long term glue, especially if you plan on storing and bring this out each year.
Instead, opt for a strong hold like a 2-part epoxy. It will be worth the little extra cost.
The ribbon-hung approach to securing the wreath to the door is always a brilliant one.
Just tack the ribbon on the top of the door where the tiny hole will be out of sight.
Melissa was inspired by the Pumpkin Patch Wreath from Williams-Sonoma.
Head over to 320 Sycamore for the tutorial.

Your wreath puts the inspiration to absolute shame! Yours is a millions times more beautiful and more natural looking too. I've never seen a wreath form like that. Where can you get one?

Hi Jackie, If you click over to Melissa's site, you can ask her directly. She says in her post that she got hers from her neighbor's trash pile but maybe she's seen them in store before too. Best of luck and thanks for reading!

I love this wreath, even nicer then the inspiration. I'm having trouble finding the pumpkins any idea where I can find them?

It says in Melissa's post that she got them at Michael's. Maybe they have them again this year?
