Burlap Pumpkin Wreath Supplies:

Supplies for a burlap pumpkin wreath: 3 rolls of burlap, pipe cleaners, and a pumpkin wreath form.

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!

Psalm 107:1

Attach Burlap to the Pumpkin Wreath Form

Pinch the burlap together about 2″ from the end. Place it on the wreath form where the first inner wire meets the bottom wire.

Pinch another section of burlap about 8″ down and attach it to the outer wire with pipe cleaner, opposite the pipe cleaner you just added. You will be able to slide it down the wire to the bottom.

You’re going to add the burlap to the form by attaching one pipe cleaner to the inner wire then one to the outer wire, back and forth. That will form the bubbles. Attach your next pipe cleaner on the inner wire. That will form the second bubble. Slide it down to meet the other one.

Note: you can change the amount of burlap that you leave in between the pipe cleaners. I like 8″ because the bubbles are less floppy. You will make the fall pumpkin wreath fuller by moving the pipe cleaners down in order to add more bubbles to the form.

Continue Adding Bubbles

Attach the third pipe cleaner to the outer, forming the third bubble. In this photo you can see how it looks when you slide the burlap down to meet the other bubbles.

Keep moving up the first column of the pumpkin, placing pipe cleaners on opposite wires. The last section of burlap you attach with pipe cleaner should be on the first inner wire, not the outer wire. Here are my last two placements in that column.

Move to the Next Column

Add the burlap bubbles to the next column just like you did in the first. Gather another section of burlap and attach it where the top wire and the second inner wire meet.

Create another bubble and secure it to the first inner wire, between two of the pipe cleaners you already added.

Continue adding bubbles until you reach the bottom wire. Like at the top of the first column, your last bubble will be added to the second inner wire.

Ending & Starting a New Roll of Burlap

Whenever I moved into the third column, I was at the end of my first roll of burlap. Move into the third column, attaching the burlap to the third inner wire.

Adding the end of the first burlap roll to the third inner wire of the form.

If you’re out of burlap now, or whenever you do run out, just secure it where it ends. Start a new roll and add it to the pumpkin wreath across from the end. In my case I started it on the second inner wire in the third column.

Continue adding burlap this column. I added more bubbles in the three inner columns than in the outer ones to give my fall wreath more dimension.

Fill the Pumpkin Wreath with Bubbles

Continue adding burlap to the wreath form until it’s full. Here’s a video of me filling half of my form. I figured you didn’t need to watch me fill the entire form with burlap because you’ll get the gist in this ten minute video.

Create & Cover a Longer Stem

Since the bubble style burlap wreath will be extra full, the short stem on the Dollar Tree pumpkin forms will be too short to see well. I created a longer stem by cutting a piece of cardboard to fit over it. Trace the stem on a piece of cardboard, cut it out with a utility knife, and hot glue it to the stem. Wrap the stem in raffia and hot glue it in place.

Here’s a quick video.

Embellish with Ribbon Accents & a Bow

If you’d like to add a little more to the body of the pumpkin wreath, you can embellish it with ribbon. All you have to do is push a bubble of ribbon between the burlap ones. I left my ribbon in one piece so I can remove it and use it again if I want to. If you want a lot of ribbon, you can attach it with the burlap as you add it to the form.

I also added a second ribbon, but I didn’t have much of it. So, I cut pieces about 6″ long and added them into the wreath.

Make the style of bow that you’d like to add. I made a simple two loop bow with long dove tailed ends and put a two loop bow made with the mint ribbon behind it. Finally I rapped raffia around the pipe cleaner that I secured the bow with and tied it in a bow.

Bow made for the fall wreath.

Finally, attach the bow to the wreath.

That’s it! The burlap pumpkin wreath is ready to hang for fall!

  1. Your bubble pumpkin wreath is too cute, Niki! I love the color! I’ll have to add this to the many ways of decorating a wire pumpkin!

  2. Your wreath is super cute! That plum burlap is sooooo pretty, and I really like the pumpkin ribbon!

    1. Thank you! I’m hoping to repaint the door soon. We bought the house in May and the previous owner didn’t sand the door down before repainting, so it’s quite messy in places. Laziness doesn’t pay off lol.

    1. Thank you! They are colors that come from a table runner I bought from Target a few years ago. They’re what I’m using as my color scheme for early fall.

    1. Thank you! Bubble burlap is just the term for burlap wreaths that you see, even with the round wreath forms where you have small bubbles of burlap come through the form, then another next to that one, and so on.
