The following is just one of the many crafts featured:
Pumpkins are easily incorporated into a celebratory, seasonal wreath by attaching them firmly using a glue gun and hot glue
You will need:
3 to 5 fresh raintree branches (available at floral suppliers)
Glue gun and glue
12-inch wire wreath frame
13 to 15 mini pumpkins, as small as possible
2 to 3 stems of fried Chinese lantern (available at floral suppliers)
Wire or ribbon for hanging
Remove the raintree blossoms from their branches and glue them on to the wire frame to form the mat. You should have some blossoms left over.
Glue the pumpkins directly onto raintree blossoms in varied clusters and angles. Add touches of Chinese lantern.
Add short pieces of raintree branches to the outside of the wreath frame in various spots to create little tendrils, then fill in the wreath with the remaining raintree blossoms to make it look full and to add dimension.
To hang the wreath, attach a piece of ribbon or a twisted wire loop to the back of the wire frame.
