Mini Pumpkin Wreath. Grab supplies from Dollar Tree to create a beautiful mini pumpkin wreath for fall.
This last week, we had a little heat wave come through. It felt like summer wanted to say, wait, it isn’t quite fall yet! But cooler temperatures are on the horizon, and I am ready to start creating for fall and winter.
Today, I am sharing how to make this beautiful mini pumpkin wreath that can be used with all your autumn decor from September through Thanksgiving.

How to Make a Mini Pumpkin Wreath
- Wire Wreath Form
- Mini Clip-on Pumpkins
- Wired Ribbon
- Floral Wire or Pipe Cleaners
- Sunflower Stems
- Mini Pomegranates
- Hot Glue Gun
All the supplies were purchased at Dollar Tree and the total cost was $20. I already had hot glue and floral wire on hand.
To start making the wreath, cut strips of the wired ribbon 8 inches long. I used a rotary cutter and ruler, but you could also cut the strips with scissors.
Then, cut pieces of floral wire, about 3-4 inches long. If you don’t have floral wire, you can use pipe cleaners, as well.
Take a cut piece of ribbon and find the center. Wrap a cut piece of floral wire around the center and then use the loose ends of the wire to attach the ribbon to the wreath.
Try to evenly distribute the ribbon around the wreath in all of the different sections. The wreath will still look somewhat bare at this point, but it will get filled in with the other stems and pumpkins. I used two full rolls of ribbon for this part of the wreath.
Next, pop the sunflower heads off the stems. Use hot glue to attach them to the wreath, again evenly distributing them around the wreath. Flip the wreath over and glue them from the backside.

I had three colors of sunflowers, so I did 3 sections of flowers with all the same colors in each section.
I love the selection of mini pumpkins Dollar Tree had this year. Each package comes with 3 pumpkins and they have little clips on the back. Simply clip the pumpkins onto the wired wreath form.
Again, I added my pumpkins from lightest to darkest around the wreath, keeping the same colors together. You could create a very different wreath by varying where you put the pumpkins and sunflowers.
Note: Some of the little clips popped out of the pumpkins, so I checked each on, and hot glued any that were loose.
Lastly, fill in any openings in the wreath with the mini pomegranate stems. Cut the stems apart leaving about 4 – 5 inches of the stem intact.
Fold the wire in half and loop it onto the wire wreath frame. Use hot glue on the back to secure these in place.
You can fluff and move the wire ribbon around to cover any wreath form you have still showing. It helps to hot glue those pieces in place to cover the gaps, but it isn’t necessary.
Dollar Tree has lots of fall phrases in both metal and wood you could easily add to the center of the wreath if you wanted, but I like it just the way it is. So far, this is the only fall decor I have up, but I am excited to start decorating this weekend.
