I. Am. SO EXCITED TO SHOW YOU THIS! I wasn’t sure I was gonna dig all these colors for Halloween but I am so in love with this DIY colorful Halloween wreath it’s not even funny. Once you decide to just jump in and go for the color, this rainbow-hued beauty comes together in a snap. And it’s a fun alternative if you’re not into the usual black-orange-purple Halloween situation. So let’s just jump in already, shall we?
- artificial mini pumpkins and gourds (you can get bags of them in the Michael’s fall section)
- spray paint
- wreath form
- glue gun and glue sticks
Make Time: 1 Hour (plus paint drying time)
Step 1: Decide on your colors. All of our colors are from Michaels: Design Master Colortool in Pink Glow and Coral, and Krylon in Sea Glass, Ballet Slipper, Sun Yellow, and Aqua.
Step 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. We did one coat on the top, one on the bottom, and one touchup coat.
Step 3: Cut out arched strips of felt and glue them onto your wreath form with the glue gun to create a base for the pumpkins.
Step 4: Lay out the pumpkins around the 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.
I love love love this bad boy, and I love how it looks on our colorful front door. But I guess I also love it on a white wall so it really pops. I think maybe you can’t go wrong! So if the traditional orange-and-black Halloween decor isn’t doing it for you, this might be right up your alley.
