Materials for Wreath

Here is a list of the supplies and materials needed for this project. Note that some of the things could be changed out with what you have in your craft stash already.

Directions for Clothespin Pumpkin Wreath Decor


Collect the supplies. These awesome big wood clothespins are found in the laundry section of the Dollar Store. Start by placing 42 wooden spring style clothespins in a large (gallon is perfect) Ziploc, then add about a tablespoon dollop of orange acrylic craft paint, and two tablespoons of water.

Zipper the bag closed and shake the clothespins in the bag until all are covered in the burnt orange acrylic craft paint. If working with kiddos, this step is perfect to do outside.


Cover a cookie a sheet or large piece of cardboard with aluminum foil, unzip the plastic bag, and turn out the painted clothespins to dry.

For faster drying time, prop the wooden clothespins around the edge of a shoebox or around the edge of the cookie sheet. Turn the clothespins over, once the tops are dry.


In a well-ventilated area, or outside cover the wire wreath form with burnt orange spray paint. Set aside to let dry. You can leave the wreath form green because only a small portion of the wire shows between the clothespins.

Clip on the wood clothespins around both of the two inner circles of the wreath form, using the outer ring as support. This will help keep them from wiggling.


Continue to clip the orange painted wooden clothespins around the wreath form. Fitting 14 clothespins into each of the three sections of the wreath.

Once all of the clothespins are clipped on, space them equally around the wreath form. The clothespins can be secured with glue if hanging outside.


Just two more steps for this Clothespin Pumpkin Wreath Decor!

Cut one jumbo craft stick in half with scissors. Paint with dark brown acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.

Attach the craft sticks to the top back of the wreath with your favorite glue gun and glue sticks. Cut two or three leaves from a silk stem with scissors. Glue to the back and front of the wreath, near the stem. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry. You could also make the leaves from green fabric or felt if desired. There are so many ways to alter craft projects just a little to make them your own.


Measure and cut three 12” lengths of natural jute twine with scissors for your Clothespin Wreath Decor. Tie in a bow and secure at the top front of the wreath with a glue gun and glue sticks.
