I was at the craft store looking for plastic spiders for another project I’ll be sharing soon, when I happened upon these white pumpkins. I thought they would make a wonderfully rustic Burlap White Pumpkin Ghost Wreath! The craft store had quite a few white pumpkins in different sizes and shapes in the fall floral picks area. These pumpkins immediately said they needed to be ghosts. This post contains affiliate links.
There is one lone hold out mini white pumpkin on the craft table who insists she is a unicorn and not a ghost. She chose not to participate in this wreath.
I decided my ghost pumpkins needed to be on a hybrid Fall/Halloween burlap wreath. My plan was to go for something that looked kinda windswept, like the wind just formed this wreath from some burlap and dead leaves and stuff, and then some ghost pumpkins and jack o’lanterns decided to hop on. I just love it!Then, to top it off, I found the perfect sign for The Society of Black Hats over at the Dollar Tree. It coordinated just wonderfully to the colors.
Burlap White Pumpkin Ghost Wreath
- 1 wire work wreath with fronds (pipe cleaners already attached) – 16 inches
- 2 rolls orange burlap 6-inch ribbon
- 2 rolls brown burlap 6-inch ribbon
- 4 white pumpkins
- 3 orange pumpkins
- black acrylic paint
- black Sharpie (fade resistant)
- hot glue gun and glue
- The Society of Black Hats sign
- yellow Fall floral with leaves
For the ghost pumpkins, I thought a sharpie would work well, but whatever these white pumpkins are made, they suck the life out of sharpies. It would dry out very quickly and become extremely frustrating. So, I switched to black craft paint, and it worked so much better. I recommend painting a couple of coats per ghost face.
I made the tiny pumpkin jack o’lanterns the same way with the craft paint.
While the ghost pumpkins are drying, make the burlap wreath. It will take two rolls each of 6-inch orange and 6-inch brown burlap ribbon. Alternate and add one orange and then one brown and then one orange and one brown as you attach it to teh wreath with the fronds.
Then, lay everything out on the wreath and hot glue it. Once the hot glue is dried, flip it over and hot glued the sign in place.
Then, it’s ready to hang! I hot glued a leftover piece of brown burlap ribbon to the top to hang on the nail on the front door.
