Start by tearing the kraft paper off of the roll it comes on in long strips. These do not need to be even or perfect! Just have fun!
Take each torn kraft paper strip and squeeze it in your hands as you give it a little twist. The idea is to crumple the kraft paper and make it appear rustic and braided.
I used approximately sixteen strips of kraft paper.
Next, begin gluing each strip down the rib of your Dollar Tree Pumpkin Wire Wreath Form a small section at a time. Twist the kraft paper loosely as you go.
Fill in between the rib sections by gluing the kraft paper strips onto the sides of the strips that are in place until the section is completely filled in.
Taking a new strip of kraft paper, line the outline of the pumpkin wire wreath frame with a tightly twisted piece. This will help define your pumpkin and make it look more like a pumpkin when completed.
Repeat this process with a super tightly twisted piece of kraft paper to outline the stem.
Finally, add a few faux leaves to the top area of your new dollar tree pumpkin wreath! I used a variety of brown, navy, and leopard leaves, but the options are endless.
Optionally, you can add a pretty bow as I did to mine using some sheer ribbon and a zip tie.
