While I was in the middle of painting all the plastic pumpkins for my heirloom pumpkin tutorial, I painted some mini ones white.
At the time, I couldn’t find any white pumpkins in the stores and by the time these ones were painted they started to become available so I decided to make a DIY project with them.
I thought a cute fall wreath would be nice.
And for now, it looks really nice in my office.

I bought these mini plastic pumpkins at Michael’s but I also found them on Amazon.
I painted the pumpkins with Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain.
I painted the stems with Algonquin first then dry brushed Upper Canada on top.
#1 Using a hot glue gun, pinch one end of the large ribbon and hot glue into place.
#2 Fluff up into a bit of a balloon-like shape, pinch and hot glue another part of the ribbon onto the wreath.
#3 Keep repeating until you have a good section of the wreath covered.
#4 Fill the middle parts of the balloon-like shapes with mini pumpkins, hot glueing into place.
#5 Put an elastic band around a bunch of dried flowers.
#6 Glue some flat twine/ribbon into place over the elastic. Hot glue the bunch onto the wreath.
Using extra twine ribbon, I hung the wreath on a door.
I love these little white pumpkins. There are so many ways to use them for simple fall crafts.
