I posted about this wreath yesterday on my home page because I have been so excited to make one of my own! I love that for 3 months you can cram as much pumpkin as possible into any recipe and it’s ok (and preferential!).
It’s also the perfect time of year to start cozy-fying your home.
There’s just something about organic, earthy elements that make everything feel cozy and comfortable. Loosely woven wicker baskets full of quilts in the living room, next to the fireplace (if only I had a fireplace… My imaginary home is becoming more and more welcoming). And how about a nice grape vine wreath with miniature white pumpkins hanging on the front door to announce to friends and neighbors that this is a warm, cozy, friendly place to come visit?
In fact, I almost feel silly posting about it, but for the sake of trying to make a name for myself and my blog, here we go! The pumpkins are fairly heavy and these wreaths just don’t give much gluing surface, ya know?
I thought about drilling holes and using wire to string the pumpkins up and attach them, but I didn’t want them to rot and have to throw this wreath away before I even get any use out of it! Wipe down your pumpkins with a damp cloth or paper towel.
Some places are a little tricky since there are vines that wrap everything together; there are some uneven spots, so just watch out for that. Once your glue gun is hot and your pumpkins are arranged, start gluing.
When it’s dry, check each pumpkin to make sure it’s not wiggly or loose. I am going to do a test-run with this wreath and keep it inside for a week or so, just to make sure it’s strong enough and that nothing falls off. Doesn’t it nicely fill that empty place over my hutch?
