Fall is here it’s September and although the temperatures definitely don’t resemble fall it’s still time to decorate everything football and pumpkins. Strolling along in the store I saw the cutest plaid pumpkins. Those plaid pumpkins inspired me to make this Fall Pumpkin Buffalo Plaid Wreath.
While I already had a Halloween Michael Myers wreath I didn’t have one that’s just fall. I want to do one for after Halloween to that’s just Thanksgiving. Making the wreaths allows me to easily rotate out decor that’s fun for the holidays. Hence, allowing me to use the wreaths year to year.
The first step is to take decorative mesh with pipe cleaners that are cut in half and attach the mesh in poofs along the wire frame. Depending on the size of the wire frame depends on how much mesh you will need. We like to do two layers of one color and another layer in the center of another color or pattern.
How To Attach Deco Mesh
As you can see here I did a plaid center. There is no need to match the pipe cleaner to all mesh but it should match the wreath. I get the pipe cleaner and deco mesh at Hobby Lobby but it can be found at other craft store or on amazon. Just attach the plaid to the center of the frame then repeat the orange on the inside of the frame.
Having plenty of the deco mesh is key when making a wreath. Here you see I have cut pieces of the deco mesh and rolled them. The mesh will roll easily on it’s own. I just cut enough of these to go all around the wreath at the metal line breaks. This technique helps to fill in the wreath.
Take the two pieces of deco mesh along with ribbon of choice then wrap with a piece of pipe cleaner. Attach these to each metal line break to help fill in the wreath. If you have bare spots this is also a good way place to attach these to fill the wreath in.
Next, I bought these plaid pumpkins then made with my cricut pumpkin kisses and harvest wishes on Oracal 651 permanent vinyl. This allows them to hold up in the weather. To find the pumpkin kisses and harvest wishes SVG just visit Sea SVG on Etsy.
I applied the pumpkin kisses and harvest wishes vinyl stickers to the pumpkins with transfer tape. Then I hot glued the pumpkins along with the white and plaid pumpkins to the wreath to the places I thought looked best.
After attaching all the pumpkins I made sure that everything was very secure. If it moves then it needs more hot glue underneath. After that is complete look through and remove any glue strings.
The wreath can then be hung on a wreath door hanger on the front door or door of your choice. We like to celebrate the seasons with our neighbors so we hang the fall pumpkin buffalo plaid wreath on the front door. Want to save this to make for later just pin it below!
