Step 1: Covering the Wreath Form

  1. Flip over the pumpkin wreath form and place the burlap fabric on the backside. Wrap the fabric around the form, cutting excess fabric with scissors.
  2. Apply hot glue in small sections onto the wreath form and pull the burlap fabric over it. Continue until the entire form is covered. Trim any excess fabric if necessary.

Step 2: Attaching the Sunflowers

  1. Remove the sunflowers from their stems using wire cutters, leaving about an inch of the stem.
  2. Apply hot glue to the backside of a sunflower and push the stem through the burlap fabric, ensuring the glue spot aligns with where the flower touches the fabric.
  3. Repeat the process, covering the entire wreath with sunflowers.

Step 3: Creating the Stem and Finishing Touches

  1. Reserve a small section of burlap (about 3 inches by 4 inches) for the stem.
  2. Fold the burlap piece to reduce transparency, then secure it to the wreath stem with hot glue.
  3. Fold the back sides of the burlap over each other and glue to secure.
  4. Attach a leaf from the sunflowers to the stem using hot glue.

Variations to Elevate Your Craft:

While the classic Dollar Tree Sunflower Pumpkin Wreath is undeniably beautiful, consider these variations to add a unique twist:

  • Mixed Floral Wreath: Incorporate different colored flowers alongside sunflowers for a vibrant and diverse wreath.
  • Seasonal Swap: Instead of sunflowers, opt for other seasonal elements like faux autumn leaves, pinecones, or small gourds.
  • Ribbon Play: Experiment with ribbons of various textures and patterns to give your wreath an extra layer of charm.

Common Questions About the Dollar Tree Sunflower Pumpkin Wreath

Can I use a different type of fabric?

For covering the pumpkin wreath form, I recommend a loose weave fabric like burlap since it makes it easy to attach the flowers.

For the stem, yes, while burlap offers a rustic look, you can explore fabrics that match your decor style, like linen or lace. You could also add a scrap of wood or a paint stick, or a stack of wooden beads, for a little extra farmhouse style.

How long does it take to complete?

Depending on your crafting experience, it might take around 2-3 hours. The perfect time to pop in a favorite movie or binge watch a favorite streaming series!

Can I use real sunflowers?

For durability on your front door, use faux sunflowers. Real sunflowers droop quickly in the heat without a good water source.

To use real sunflowers for a shorter event, you’ll need to have some floral foam inside the pumpkin wreath form. Soak the heavy duty floral foam with water before sticking the flowers in to keep the sunflowers from wilting right away.
