DIY Fall harvest wreath

Now that the weather has turned crisp and the leaves have started to change color, I figured it was time to switch up my Seashell wreath for something more seasonally appropriate. This is fun to make because there's no wrong way to do it! Just weave in the leaves and wire on the pumpkins.
  • Grape vine wreath
  • Leaves collected from outdoors
  • Modge Podge & paintbrush
  • Styrofoam pumpkins (available at most craft stores in the floral section)
  • Floral wire
