How to Make an Embroidery Hoop Chubby Pumpkin Wreath

Beautiful autumn decor inspiration plus a simple tutorial, how-to make a chubby yarn pumpkin wreath (or garland) for autumn with yarn and an embroidery hoop!

The last few days here have been crisp and cool and that put me into the mood to start some autumn decorating.  I didn’t want to start too early but once the calendar said September and the temperature was in the 50’s I knew it was time.

I usually start with fall decor, then transition into Halloween, then back to fall before heading full force into Christmas. Then, the house gets boring but for now, I’m going to embrace all of the festivities and decor that goes along with it for the next few months.Fall IdeasTour- tons of fall ideas and decor inspiration by top bloggers.

How To Make a Chubby Yarn Pumpkin Wreath

My little wreath is super simple to make with just a few basic supplies:

Embroidery Hoop – 10 inches

Orange Yarn

One Green Chenille Stem (pipe cleaner)



How to make a chubby yarn pumpkin

Start by wrapping yarn around two fingers approximately 80 times.

Slide off fingers and pull a separate piece of yarn, approximately 6 inches, through the center of the yarn and tie tightly.

Fold chenille stem in half and wrap around tied off yarn.

Cut off any excess yarn tie being careful to NOT cut into the pumpkin.

Follow the above steps three times (or more if you want to make a chubby yarn pumpkin garland) and put pumpkins aside.
