Pumpkins On A Wreath

October 02, 2013

Decorating with Pumpkins day 4-  Must they be orange?

Absolutely not! Pumpkins may be any color you choose and this

is where the decorating fun begins.  For this wreath I chose bright 

purple pumpkins with oodles of glitter. ( I adore glitter, one of the 

things in life that makes me smile...)

When making this wreath my inspiration came from the Addams

family.  I am sure you are familiar with the adventures of this 

blissfully macabre family.  I wanted to create a wreath that they 

would proudly hang on their front door! 

I began with a grapevine wreath, in order to make it a bit more

festive for the Halloween season I spray painted it a light gray.

Keeping with the Addams family theme I remembered that Morticia 

did like black roses and she also had a certain flair about her so I 

added some black daisies with bling centers. 

I do like big bows and deco mesh just seemed like the perfect 

material for the colorful theme that I was going with.  Since I was

envisioning more of a feminine Halloween wreath I also added a 

bright, pink and bold witches shoe.

Enjoy and experiment with all of the bright and colorful pumpkins

for your fall decorating themes!
