A Neutral Pink Fall Door Wreath

For this front door wreath, I didn’t want to get rid of any trace of color, so I used a creamy off-white with some pale pinks tossed in as an accent (although pink is often a neutral around here!). I finished the pumpkins off with gold painted stems to add a little visual interest.

It stands out really beautifully on our yellow front door, but this would look lovely on a natural wood door, or just about any color! (Black would look great, don’t you think?)

How to Hang a Front Door Wreath without damaging the door

I use this secret every year to hang our front door wreaths around the holidays! We don’t use nails, door hangers, or ribbon. Nope!

Just one simple secret weapon: Command Hooks! The medium or large outdoor hooks are plenty sturdy to hold a wreath, they hide completely out of sight, and when you remove them they leave your door without a mark. Perfect.

If you are creating a heavier wreath, I recommend using a large hook. You can check the weight rating to make sure the hook will hold your creation. This wreath is hung on a medium clear hook and it’s sturdy and strong.

Ways to Customize This DIY Front Door WReath

There are so many ways you could switch this DIY door wreath up and make it your own. Let these suggestions get your ideas flowing!

  • Try a different paint palette that works with your front door. You could do blacks and whites, shades of gold, or a monochromatic vibe. You could even do a rainbow of colors like this one.
  • Add sprigs of faux florals to fill in any sparse spots and bring extra texture to the door wreath.
  • Vary the size and shape of your faux pumpkins to create a different look.
  • Create mini wreaths with extra small pumpkins.

How to Make our Neutral Pink Fall Wreath

Materials

  1. Decide on your colors. I used paint colors we had on hand in a mix of spray paint and craft paint (off-white and pale pink).
  2. Paint an equal number of pumpkins in each of your colors. Allow to thoroughly dry. You may need to go back with a couple extra coats for touchups. I did one coat on the top, one on the bottom, and one touchup coat.
  3. Paint the stem of each pumpkin or gourd gold.
  4. Cut out long strips of felt and wrap them tightly around your wreath form, securing every few inches with hot glue. This creates a base to which you can glue your pumpkins.
  5. Lay out the pumpkins around the front door wreath to get a general idea of how many you can fit and how full you’d like it to be. Start by glueing on the larger pieces all the way around. Fill in with medium-sized pumpkins and finish by adding the smallest pieces where you need some extra filler.

Have fuN!

That’s it! Hang up your front door wreath to welcome fall. I love this wreath because it’s not super Halloween-focused, so you can put it up as early as you’d like. And leave it up after Halloween, all the way until Thanksgiving. Hope you enjoy making this one! xoxo
