I have always been obsessed with these tiny faux gourds. I had a bunch of them in various shades of orange and cream on my coffee table, which I put out basically as soon as September starts. Ha. And then I decided to create a DIY tiny gourds wreath for the front door at the holiday house.
This is one of those crafts projects that absolutely anyone could do, as it’s basically just arranging and hot gluing things together. It’s a great craft project to make while watching a movie. I rewatched Sleepless in Seattle while I made the wreath you see here.
This DIY tiny gourds wreath is a great project to make at a crafting night too, so long as you have enough glue guns to share. I actually made a mini version of this wreath that’s now hanging inside the house one night when I was crafting with a couple of friends.
You may also want a drop cloth or scrap material to cover your work surface with. I don’t know about you, but sometimes my hot glue gun leaks a little while it’s turned on. So best to protect any tabletops that you don’t want to get glue on.
Step One: Glue the tiny gourds or pumpkin to the wreath. Once it’s dry you are ready to hang—it’s truly that easy! I love working with grapevine wreaths on a project like this because it has so much texture for the hot glue to stick to. Plus, the rustic look is fine to peek through some areas, almost like the gourds are growing on a vine.
There you have it—a DIY tiny gourd wreath. I know this is kind of random project, but as silly as it sounds it really does spark a little joy for me when I see it on the front door when I come back from a walk or running errands. And I’ll take any little joy this season, even tiny gourd related. Thanks for letting me share. xo. Emma
