Round Up Your Supplies

To make the wreath, you will need: An 18" straw wreath/ decorative floral pods/a hot glue gun

Apply the Glue

Add a bit of glue to the bottom of each seed pod and adhere it to the wreath.

Like a Puzzle

Continue to glue seed pods to the wreath. Use assorted sized pods to fit them as closely together as possible, much like a puzzle.

Layer 'Em Up

In the areas where the wreath still shows through, glue on additional pods for a layered look.

Black and White

Hang this wreath from your front door with a black and white striped ribbon to usher in Halloween. Then change out the ribbon to one with fall colors until Thanksgiving.

From the Door to the Table

Place the wreath in the center of the Thanksgiving table and add a decorative glass vase with a candle for the perfect holiday centerpiece.
