FALL PUMPKIN WREATH TUTORIAL

Here at StoneGable the change of season gives me a reason to create a new wreath. 
I love the saturated color of fall… the warm hues and the wonderful textures!
This wreath is overflowing with autumnal abundance!  

It’s really quite easy to make a big full FALL PUMPKIN WREATH… I’ll show you step by step…

StoneGable Fall 2010 Wreath Tutorial
2 large wreaths
3 glitzy pumpkins
5 large picks of orange/brown berries
4 large picks of earthy colored ball “berries”
2 packages of crape paper like fall leaves
3-5 picks assorted brambly berries and leaves
2 bags of pine cones and acorns
3 large pine cones
2 large stems, brown gourd pods
3 feather picks
2 packs of assorted feathers
odds and ends leaves and berries
florist wire
hot glue
dust buster
 Begin by wiring 2 grapevine wreaths together. This will make your wreath big and lush!

Because I wanted the whole wreath to be filled in, I sectioned the wreath into thirds and glued a large pick of rusty colored berries to the wreath.
Add additional variegated large berry/ball pics in between the original 3 picks.
This now sections off the wreath and makes little areas to work with. I find this much easier than trying to work on the whole wreath at one time.
Add pumpkins up against the original 3 berry pick

Tuck leaves under the pumpkins, crinkling them to give them visual life.

Add pine cones. I decided to use only 2 large ones and 1 grouping of small pine cones in place of the 3rd large pine cone, again for more interest.

Begin to fill in the gaps between each section with berries,leaves. feather pics,  pine cones and acorns. Continue to fill in and layer elements until the wreath is abundant and filled with visual interest.

Hang wreath and continue to fill in while looking at it in a vertical position.  This is a very important step.  Because the wreath will be viewed in an upright position, make sure there are no gaps or visual unbalance in the wreath when it hangs. I added feathers once the wreath was vertical. It was easier to position them.
Shake wreath and re-glue all loose pieces.  Fluff and hang in the perfect spot!
Hang and enjoy!

    So I was in the process of leaving a really long comment, but the power went out for a moment and I lost it – grr!

    So anyway, I adore this stunning wreath – it would look so good against my black front door. The tutorial is excellent too! I might actually have to try my hand at making one if I don’t win.

    I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging for a year – seems like you’re one of the long-time pros with a ton of experience under your belt. I’m amazed!

    I’m unclear if I’m supposed to enter a new comment for each chance, so ignore them if I’m confused. Love, love, love your blog!!

    Hi Yvonne

    Greetings from Stuttgart, Germany! My husband and I are retired military, and we are still living here though as my husband got a civilian job doing his old military job.
    Because of this, I love to browse creative blogs like yours(which I just discovered today!), and it was just so wonderful to come across such a lovely wreath for the fall season and such a lovely gift of a tutorial.
    Thank you for sharing your talents with us, and thank you for giving me a little bit of home seeing this wonderful Fall item.

    Congratulations on your one year blogiversay, and I promise to continue seeing your wonderful items.

    I recently left a job where, for six years, I rarely had anything to do. To keep myself from going bonkers from the boredom I began to discover the world of blogs. I linked to Stone Gable from some other foodie/designer blog and fell in love!! I positively adore your style, your photos, your menus and recipes. Congratulations on a year! It has been a year of beauty and inspiration. Thanks.

    Happy Anniversary! I’ve just found your blog in September and I check every day to look again and again at your elegant and inspirational ideas. Wish I had found you a year ago! Love your blog.

    Happy Anniversary. What a wonderful business we work in as well as being able to create new friendships from all over. I am a future website and blog crafter and I would love to have your site noted on mine.
    For now, I can see me sitting enjoying my coffee and those wonderful macaroons while I look at your wreath hanging on my wall.
    Love, love, love. God Bless

    Yvonne..it seems hard to believe it has already been a year…you started your lovely blog just a short time after I did…and yet it seems you’ve been a lifelong friend! Please keep your wonderful, informative posts coming.

    I would LOVE to win that wreath!

    I follow and I follow on FB.

    But if I should win, PLEASE don’t send those macaroons…I would not be able to be trusted around those, lol!!

    Blessings to you my friend!

    This wreath is so very pretty! I love autumn! In fact, I just went walking with my 9 year son today in a quiet park so we could gather some pinecones to start scenting. Mmmm!

  112. says

    *** I left a message/comment for you at the beginning of the blog (BEFORE I “clicked” and “moved” over here)…

    ANYHOOOOOO, as I’ve been reading your tutorial on making this wreath, I realized you were sharing those “SPECIAL TIPS” (!) that would MAKE a wreath really FAB like this one, and I think that was sooo nice of you!!! That you included the “artistic thinking” is very thoughtful!

    Annnd, of course, beauuuutiful wreath!!! But, can someone who is NOT talented in this arena really put it together like you??? I dunno… my husband even lets the dry cleaners sew on any/all buttons, just because I stuck myself & got blood all over his shirts (43 years ago, Yvonne!!!… (HEY! Maybe that actually makes me “LUCKY”, cuz I don’t have to SEW on buttons myself!! Grins!)…

    Again, many thanks!

    Yvonne, congratulations on your first year blogiversary. I happen to find it today, and I must say you have let me in awe of your talents.
    I live in Stuttgart, Germany as my husband retired from the U.S. military, and is now working as a civilian so we continue to live here. Due to this, I love seeing things like your blog which remind so much of home and the incredibly beautiful things there are.
    Yes, we are also blessed to have a job and to live in Europe, but that never makes you miss home any less. The wreath truly made me think so much of home. Please know that I will continue to follow you in the future.
    I loved reading your story of your dad being in the east during Christmas and the Santa ornament story. Loved it, and it reminded me of many of my own. I also had my better half in Iraq for a whole year(2005), and it was a blessing that he came back well and not injured. I also missed him terribly as you missed your dad.
    I also want to thank you for being such a sweet soul to share your tutorials with us. It will inspire to decorate my home for the fall. Please know that I also enjoyed many of the recipes you shared, and they do sound super yummy.
    Have a wonderful Fall season, and I look forward to enjoying many more of your blogs.
    Best wishes from Germany,
    Laura
