Project Instructions

  • 1
    Attach seven Orange chenille stems across the top of the wire wreath, and seven across the bottom of the wreath, for a total of 14 stems. The outermost top side stems should be 8 inches apart from the bottom side stems.
  • 2
    Hot glue stems in place on wreath so they do not move around. Twist the stems a couple of times tightly onto outside wire of the form.
  • 3
    Gather mesh and attach to stem on the first stem on the bottom of the wreath form. Twist tightly to secure.
  • 4
    Gather 10 inches of mesh and secure into the first top stem.
  • 5
    Repeat gathering and attaching, going up and down from stem to stem. Make your poufs a little higher as you get to the center of the pumpkin. Note: The center pouf should be the biggest/highest one.
  • 6
    After the last attachment, cut mesh leaving 10 inch tail. Push mesh tail into the back side of the poufs to make wreath fuller.
  • 7
    Wrap ends of chenille stems around wire wreath in back.
  • 8
    Make a multi-loop bow with Emerald deco mesh ribbon. Secure bow with Orange chenille stem. Cut the loops and then cut the ends into pointed ovals to create leaves. Attach the leaves to the top of the wire form with a chenille stem.
