This year I decided it was time to switch up my fall decor and add some subtle modern touches.  I dressed up some clay jack o’ lanterns with snake plants to add some greenery to our front doorsteps.  I usually just hang a plain grapevine wreath but because of the snake plants and our fiddle leaf fig tree, I felt like I needed to spruce up my wreath a bit and add some pops of color to tie it all together.  I began searching everywhere hoping that something would catch my eye, but I just couldn’t find anything I loved.  Finally, I came across this wreath on the Terrain website.  It was perfect but it was a little out of my price range, so I decided that I would make one myself.

Here is what you will need to make this wreath:

Once you have all of your materials gathered, start arranging the dried pumpinos how you want them on top of the wreath.  Using the hot glue gun, and start gluing them onto the wreath.  Be careful when doing this, the glue can be extremely hot and will easily burn you! Trust me I know this from experience!

After adding a few pumpinos, start gluing the moss by tucking it around the sides.  Keep doing this until you have achieved the look you want for your wreath.  I choose to stop the process leaving it with some grapevine showing at the top but you can do this all the way around too!

Here is my finished product!  I love the way it looks with the pumpkins and the snake plants.  I also added some black lanterns around to give some extra spookiness and lighting.
