If you frequent your local Dollar Tree as much as I do, chances are you’ve seen their pumpkin wreath form pop up every year as I have. Well, this year I decided to pick one up in an attempt to make a pumpkin wreath that’s actually tasteful and not cheesy… no offense, but there are a lot of cheesy pumpkins out there!
This post is all about my Dollar Tree pumpkin wreath tutorial!

Instructions for Dollar Tree Pumpkin Wreath
Where can I find a Pumpkin Wreath Form?
I always see the pumpkin wreath forms at Dollar Tree at the end of summer, but if you are having no luck or looking at a different time, try Etsy or a craft store. Amazon charges way too much for one if you ask me!
Spray Paint the Wreath Form
Since the form was a similar color to our front door, I decided to add contrast by spraying one of the forms white. If you would like for your form to be something other than black (or maybe yours is green and you would like to make it black), then you will want to do so now. Check out my spray painting tips here on my laminate cart makeover.
Cut the Wreath Form
If your form is like mine, you will have 6 wires protruding away from the wreath form creating a 3D-like shaped pumpkin. We are going to call these wires the ribs of the pumpkin. Cut each of the ribs away from the form at the very top using a pair of snips. You can also do this by bending the ribs back and forth until they snap off. Be sure to NOT cut the two end pieces that lay flat and are connected to the stem- just the ribs.
Add Wooden Beads to the Wreath Form
Once all of the ribs of the pumpkin have been snipped, start threading your wooden beads onto each rib wire.
How Many Wooden Beads will I need for this wreath?
It takes around 20 beads to completely fill each wire, which is about 120 beads total per wreath.
Glue the last bead back to the Wreath Form
When adding your last bead, fill the hole with hot glue, let it cool for a few seconds, then thread it onto the wire just as you did with the other beads.
Connect the rib wire back to the top of the pumpkin by pressing the glue oozing out of the bead onto the form where the wire was originally connected before cutting it. Add a dime-size amount of hot glue to the area and hold it in place for at least 30 seconds.
Can I Paint the Beads?
Of course, you can paint wooden beads! I left the beads their natural color for this DIY, but I have some really great tips on how to paint a ton of beads at one time on my farmhouse beaded garland tutorial here. You basically string a bunch of beads, dip them in paint and hang them to dry.
Wrap Twine Around the Stem
To decorate your stem the way I did, wrap twine around the outside of the stem until you get to the top. Make sure the ends of the twine are on the backside of the stem then add some glue to both ends. That’s it! If you have strings or ugly globs of hot glue showing, carefully melt them away using the tip of the hot glue gun.
Add Greenery to the Top
Finish your pumpkin wreath by adding some greenery or a few floral pieces. I used my favorite greenery for this project, lamb’s ear! I did this by cutting 2 6″ pieces off of the garland, intertwining two pieces of lamb’s ear around the top of the pumpkin and gluing the ends to the back of the stem towards the base.
Add Twine to Hang
To be able to hang your pumpkin wreath, tie a piece of twine around the top of the form. I tied mine near the 2nd and 5th rib wire. You can also hang it on a hook too.
