I am at it once again…being a big fat copy cat! As usual, I have been stalking perusing the pages of the Pottery Barn catalog to see which designs I can recreate for less!

img52c So when I saw their  Harvest Pumpkin Wreath, I knew I had found my latest candidate! Love all those little pumpkins and those leaves and berries! Their colors are a little muted for me, though…a “fall is all about orange” kinda gal! And…at $99, the price is a little hefty!

Baby Kitty Then Baby Kitty reminded me that I already have absolutely everything that I need in my stash…and I mean everything! And I’ll bet you do, too! Woo hoo! This one is gonna be free!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Fall Wreath supplies Here’s what you will need:
  • Grapevine wreath
  • Leaf garland
  • Florist wire
  • 15 to 20 small faux pumpkins or gourds
  • Berries
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Wire cutters or scissors
  • Metal skewer 
  • Hot glue gun

Pier 1 Bargain I am really excited to be able to add my berries since they will come from this Pier 1 berry garland that I bought on sale waaay after Christmas…a $35 garland for 90% off!  I couldn't believe it…there were still three of them and I bought them all, so cutting one up won’t bother me!

Here’s what you do:
  1. Wrap the leaf garland around the grapevine wreath, securing with florist wire.
  2. Cut the bamboo skewers in half using the wire cutters (easier for me) or scissors
  3. Make a hole in the bottom of each of the pumpkins using a metal skewer
  4. Insert the bamboo skewer halves
  5. Arrange the pumpkins the way you want them ( You may find that you have to shorten the skewers even more) and add in the berries
  6. Secure the pumpkins and berries in place with hot glue (Not pictured)
I suppose that you could just hot glue the pumpkins directly and skip steps 2-4, but I like things to be relatively symmetrical, so I wanted to arrange the pumpkins, stand back and see if I needed to move any.
