Call me crazy, but I like to make things that are different than what everyone else does.

But, if you prefer a more traditional look, then you can adjust this wreath by using different ribbons and other crafty items that you love. Consider adding bold colors like purple, orange, or bright blue. 

Additionally, you can even make this Halloween wreath to give away as gifts too. Surprise your neighbor or friend, and they will be thrilled.

I think the main reason why I love this Halloween wreath so much is that it’s relaxing to throw them together. I can be as creative as I want, and I can forget all my other thoughts and just focus on my project. 

Whether you use this as a door wreath or put it on a shelf, it’s going to be an incredible focal point in any space. 

How Big Should I Make DIY Pumpkin Wreath?

There are several things to consider when trying to decide how large or small to make the wreath. Think of the space you are going to be hanging or placing it in. Is it a large open space? If so you can make a much larger one than if you are placing it on a small bookshelf. Check out these recommendations:

  • Door Wreaths – Hanging the wreath on your door means you can make the wreath up to 24 inches. This is assuming your door is the standard size of 36 inches. 
  • Mantle or Shelf – If your space isn’t huge, I recommend going with a standard 10 or 12-inch wreath form. It would still look nice, but not be too overpowering. 
  • Wall Hanging – You can go as big or as small as you wish for your wall. Make sure to hang it at eye level and make it large enough to fit your wall space.

Where Did Wreaths Come From?

Have you ever wondered where wreaths come from other than crafty people who want to decorate? Wreaths were originally worn on the head to represent your occupation or even social status. Eventually, they were made with twigs and greenery and hung on doors. Wreaths originated in ancient Greece.

What Is The Best Way To Store Your Wreath?

It doesn’t matter if you have one wreath or 100 wreaths, storing them is essential if you want to use them year after year. There are several wreath storage containers out there, and they work perfectly.

If you don’t want to spend the money, you can easily hang the wreaths on hangers and place them in a storage closet. You can leave them open or cover them with plastic trash bags. Another option is to buy garment bags and hang them in that too.
