I have a cute and easy project for you today.
And even though it's cute and very easy to put together, it took me like a whole week to finish it up.
I really wanted to include this wreath in my Fall home tour, but I couldn't. :(
The pumpkins were painted and strung together,
the bow was done.
I only needed one thing to put it together:
More exactly I needed my hot glue gun.
Yep. I had no idea where it was.
I have three hot glue guns.
One that's big and uses oval glue sticks. - I don't like it. It's too bulky and I can't find those sticks easily. Of course I run out of glue sticks for that one.
I have another one, a tiny pink hot glue gun and that's my favorite. It's the cheapest one I've found, it always gives the right amount of glue and it fits perfectly in my hand.
The other gun is one upgrade I bought for the little pink. It cost me like five times more, and it doesn't work that well. The glue keeps running even without pushing the trigger. Oh, I don't like it!
The problem was, I couldn't find them. I know, crazy!
But, let's go back to the wreath. ;)
I found this -Easter- wreath at the clearance section of T.J. Maxx, for only three bucks, I didn't mind the bunny only had one ear.
After removing the bunny and the carrots. I used it as a base for my new project.
The other materials you'll need:
- Little pumpkins (I bought 3 packages of little pumpkins at Michaels)
- A piece of wire - (I used a metal hanger, to form a ring)
- Drill with a 1/8 drill bit
- Hot glue gun - Of course!
Using the drill, poke a hole across each of the pumpkins.
The pumpkins I bought were orange/yellow. Miss. RLC painted them white with yellow accents. Once the paint is dry start stringing the pumpkins onto the wire ring. Using the pliers make a hook on both ends of the wire to close the ring.
You can leave it just like this, adding a bow at the top. I think it's cute.
However I wanted to add the pumpkin ring to the wreath form I already had. And it took me more than a week to find my hot glue gun as you already know.
I found it! (insert big smile here).
The box with both glue guns was left in my son's room. I used it there to glue the flip-out bins in his closet. :/
I'm loosing my mind!
After gluing them together and adding a bow, this is how it looks on the door.
As you know, I'm going neutral this year. ;)
You can leave the pumpkins orange and use a different wreath base. The same applies to the ribbon, the possibilities are endless!
