Simple White Pumpkin Wreath For Fall

September 18, 2019


Whip up a simple and elegant white pumpkin wreath for fall to welcome the season and decorate your home.


Well hello there my {almost} fall friends! Are you ready for a little bit of seasonal inspiration?

I know, I know, I'm usually all about summer until old Mother Nature and the calendar force autumn on me, but this year, I'm diving in a few days early.

Crazy, I know.

But I have a good reason.

You see this year, I was asked to join the Fall Ideas Tour hosted by Angie at Postcards From The Ridge. I was so excited to participate that I decided to try something new and embrace fall right from the start.

I'll let you know how that goes.

In the meantime, in addition to the pumpkin wreath I made for my own front door, today you can peek at some fabulous autumn decor from my very talented friends. The hop goes on all week, so be sure to check back and peek at all the pretty!



Simple Greenery And White Pumpkin Wreath


You may remember that last year, we finally got around to removing the old glass storm door and replacing our boring and, frankly, ugly, primed - but never painted - awful front door.

It bothered me enormously for way too long. It just wasn't indicative of what my home looked like on the inside and I always felt like my house was frowning.

The new door was exactly what I wanted, a bold, blank canvas where I could hang up a statement wreath, without it getting lost against a bland background or squished by heavy glass.

Colorful Floral Spring Wreath

And it's worked out very well so far. I've been able to decorate with a lot of color, and full bouquets of flowers, but this fall, I decided I wanted something a little different. I was craving something simple, elegant and almost monotone.

I also wanted a wreath that would allow me to cling to that summery feeling, as the trees started to turn color and lose their leaves. I wanted an accessory that still looked fresh, while the earth around me began to rust.




So green and white became my palette of choice...and lucky me, I found this wreath at HomeGoods for eight bucks!

Grapevine Greenery Wreath

No kidding. It was originally $49.99, but because it was a little droopy on one side it was tossed in the clearance pile.

I thought I was going to have to hot glue it or wire it back into shape, but turns out, the plastic pieces had just become unclipped. I popped them back together and voila, done.

White Pumpkin Picks

Next, I grabbed my green floral wire and anchored several mini white pumpkins in place. Those tiny picks were less than .70 each at the craft store. I love a good preseason sale.

Green Floral Wire

I was going to use hot glue on them, too, but with wire alone the pumpkins can be easily removed allowing me to reuse the wreath in another season. And I will.

Fall Front Door Decor

The finished wreath, which took me about five minutes to put together, was exactly what I was looking for and it actually inspired me to add a few more elements to the stoop.

I purchased a new black rubber scrolled mat and dragged a planter from the backyard up front for a little extra pop. I think the entire ensemble suits my 1920's beach cottage well.

White Pumpkin Wreath DIY

Precisely what I had envisioned.

Simple, elegant, understated.

And just enough fall for this dedicated summer girl.

What's on your front door?

  1. What a beautiful wreath, Kim! It looks great on your dark colored door and is perfect for welcoming guests to your home. You got such a steal on your wreath base and it's going to be so easy to use this wreath in any season by changing out what you wire to it. Wreath Day is so full of great ideas on the Fall Ideas Tour!

    1. Super easy, Patti! I'm a lazy crafter and decorator, so it has to be simple or it's just not happening. Ha! Thanks for the visit!

  6. I need to have a look at wreaths of autumns past and see if they still look great or if they need a bit of refreshing. I'm jealous of your wreath find, but happy for you! Great deal and that wreath is timeless and seasonless!

    Your front door is looking elegant!

  8. A beautiful wreath for a beautiful door. The door is so elegant. The wreath is especially lovely with the light shining on it. I didn't do one thing for fall. Just didn't feel it. But I love your simple wreath idea!

    1. Thanks Brenda! You know me, I'm all about summer. I'm a reluctant fall decorator, but these few little pumpkins hit the spot. I'll see if I manage to get any of them put out inside the house. 😉

    1. I was so excited when I saw the price tag, Julie, I actually had to look twice...I just couldn't believe it! And thank you! If I have to say goodbye to summer, at least I have something pretty on the door.

  12. Yay, another summer girl! I love how your wreath just pops against your lovely black door. We got a new dark charcoal color door and hubby won't let me hang a wreath for fear HIS new door will get scratched. So I'm totally jealous! Maybe if I show him how gorgeous your wreath looks, he'll change his tune.

    1. Marie, my husband wouldn't let me have a black door for years, because the other one warped from the heat that built up between the glass of the storm door and the fiberglass. So I get it...I will say that I've had wreaths on the door for several seasons now and so far no scratches! Here's a wreath in your future!

  13. I feel your old front door pain! I still have the old, yucky 60's version that's orangy wood with a horrible forest green storm door that has a horizontal thingy. Makes for terrible blog material. I dream of a nice, black new door like yours! I love the simplicity of the white pumpkins on the green. So fresh against the black door, and just a hint of fall!

    1. Thank you so much, Lora and boy, I totally get it! We lived with that door for years and I grimaced every time I pulled up to the house. I did see your post today about all those creative places to hang wreath though...doesn't look like you need a front door to have a gorgeous wreath. I was awed! Thanks for the visit and here's to a new door!! ☺️

  14. So many great tips for creating the great fall curb appeal. I love the way your wreath pops against your black door. I miss my back door on my other home for that very reason. I find that glass doors present so many other issues like seeing the mechanics on the backside of a wreath, lol.

  15. Kim, I can't imagine any other wreath looking so stunning against your black door! I need to peruse the Home Goods bins more often!

  26. Kim, what a gorgeous wreath and such a good size. You will be able to use that for every season and it looks beautiful on your black door as did the little pink one you showed. Fall is really here and we have had to turn the stove on a little bit. That looks like such a fun party and I am on my way to visit. I haven't even heard of some of their blogs so will be fun to meet new folks. Thanks for your visits and I just received a new pattern book so hope to have another Santa to show shortly..Happy Thursday..xxoJudy

    1. Judy, thank you! I was shocked at the price because it really is a good size. It’s huge!! I think that’s why it looks so pretty on its {almost} own. Those little teeny pumpkins almost serve as the bow. I can’t wait to see your new Santa. You make me want to skip over Halloween and Thanksgiving and jump right into Christmas! xo

  30. I love boxwood Kim. What a great find. It always pays to check the clearance area of a store. I agree.
