How to Attach Pumpkins to Wreaths

Sharing is caring!

Another #wreathmaking tip – Use an awl or ice pick to pierce/drill hole through pumpkins and then thread a pipe cleaner. Use the pipe cleaner to wire the pumpkin to your wreaths. You can find other tips like this in my ebook.

    Hi, I could really use a tip on wear and how to place a bow on a deco mesh wreath. Thank you!

    what size frame and poofs to make a mesh wreath for between storm door? Mine seem to turn out too deep. TIA

      I measure them out 8″ and don’t fluff the poof. The wreath needs to be less than 4″ deep if going in a storm door. I use 20″ work wreath frames.

    As always, Julie, your website is inspirational and helpful. Thank you for the beauty you bring to the world, and for the great insights you give to those of us just learning the art of wreath design.
    I just purchased one of your videos (Christmas wreath), and it is incredible! I view it a lot just to make sure I’m on the right track with things. Thanks again!
