Give your front door all the fall feels with a wreath just as chic as your porch’s pumpkin display. This beauty boasts an unexpected shape and a muted, on-trend color palette for a design that’s sure to impress guests.

Materials Needed

  • wood glue
  • circular saw or hand saw
  • 12" x 20" wood embroidery hoop
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • (4) branches of preserved white oak leaves
  • (2) mini faux white pumpkins
  • (2) lamb's ear picks
  • (3) small pinecones
  • (1) faux green berry pick

Secure Hoops Together

Loosen the embroidery hoop hardware to separate the hoop into two hoops. Line the outer edge of the inner hoop with wood glue, and place the inner hoop back inside the outer hoop. Tighten the hardware so the pieces fit back together snugly. Allow to dry for one hour.

Plan Design

Lay the hoop on a flat surface, and arrange the leaves, lamb’s ear, berries, pumpkins and pinecones into your desired design. Play around with placement until you find a good fit. Note: Once you begin gluing, you may need to slightly adjust the design as you go.

Attach Base Materials

Clear the materials away from the hoop. Apply hot glue on the rim where the branches of white oak leaves will go (Image 1). Place them so they follow the curve of the hoop. These leaves serve as the base of the design, so it’s important you secure them to the hoop itself. Be sure to hold them in place until the glue dries completely. After attaching the leaves, attach the lamb’s ears with a generous amount of hot glue (Image 2). Then, attach the berry pick with hot glue (Image 3).

Adorn With Accents

Apply a generous amount of hot glue to the bottom of pumpkins and pinecones, and attach them to the rim of the hoop (Images 1 and 2). Provide additional support by gluing them to oak leaves, lamb's ear or other pumpkins/pinecones when possible. Again, be sure to hold firmly in place until the glue dries completely.

Display

If hanging on a wall, position the nail just slightly off-center to offset the wreath’s unequal weight distribution. If hanging on a door, use a small piece of double-sided duct tape to secure the hoop to the door hanger at the appropriate spot.
