Cut the roll of deco mesh into 10-inch lengths giving you fairly equal squares of mesh.
Roll a square and insert a floral pin in the center of the tube.
Fold at the center and add a dab of hot glue near the floral pin prongs.
Insert the pin on an angle into the edge of the Styrofoam disc.
Continue this process around the circle and work your way into the center until the disc is full.
Turn the orange tube flower upside down so that the Styrofoam disc is face up.
Cut a 24-inch long piece of green deco mesh.
Roll this into a loose tube so that the resulting tube is twice as large as the orange tubes.
Insert floral pin at the lower third of the tube.
Apply some hot glue near the prongs and insert into the top end of the disc.
Insert the leaf stems into the top end of the disc on either side of the green tube.
Tie orange ribbon into a loop hanger and glue to the disc. The loop should not be visible behind the stem when viewing the wreath from the front.
Cut orange felt to cover the back of the disc and bottom of the stem and hot glue in place. This will also protect your door from scratches!
Tie raffia around the green stem.
Expert Tips & FAQs
Full disclosure, I used Floracraft decorative mesh, but they don't have orange on Amazon. So I'll link to a similar product on Amazon here. You should be able to easily find this at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and probably even at WalMart.
You can buy small bags of silk leaves or you can use leaves that come with silk flowers. If you only have leaves without stems, glue them to popsicle sticks so that you will be able to insert the sticks into the Styrofoam. This is necessary in order for the leaves to be high enough to be seen from behind the deco mesh rolls of the pumpkin.
For this pumpkin wreath, you will need TWO of the 10-inch x 10-yard rolls. You could probably get away with one, but it's better to be safe than sorry! And if you don't use the second one you can always return it.
