Ornamental Gourd Wreath

Fall Wreath

This wreath has to be one of my favorite creations. It was easy to assemble and all of the wreath ingredients were collected at my local nursery and craft stores.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Small gourds
  • Grape vine (optional)
  • Moss
  • Foam wreath form
  • Floral picks
  • Floral wire
  • Glue gun

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Wrap floral wire around the wreath form to create a loop to hang it.
  2. Insert  floral picks into the bottom of the gourds then randomly insert the gourds into the foam wreath form. You can also put a dab of hot glue on the  bottom of the gourd for additional support.
  3. This step is optional – for texture and interest, wrap  grapevine around the wreath and secure with floral wire.
  4. To cover the exposed foam, hot glue moss into all of the crevices.
  5. Done!

Happy Halloween and happy crafting!
