There are loads of fall themes that are great to use during the fall. Pumpkins happen to be a favorite for us. We have a fun time looking for them in pumpkin patches, reading books about them and so much more.
We wanted something fun to decorate for the fall. And I love having my girls creations around the house. This is a great way to add a little fall in a fun way with the pumpkin patch wreath.
We have included links to some of the products and resources we have used with this activity. If you purchase via the links we may earn a small commission.
One of our favorite fall books is The Pumpkin Book. It is a fun way to learn about pumpkins. We decided that we would make a pumpkin wreath after we read the book.

How to Make the Pumpkin Patch Wreaths
I love using the dot marker for painting that paper plates because they dry so fast. You can color them any way you want. We used the main dot marker and the dot marker brillant for our green colors. I put a paper under the wreat to help keep the table cleaner.
After you have your coloring done you punch out the pumpkin. We use the circle punch for this. But you could trace and cut a circle if you wanted. The punch just makes it easier.
Then the next step is optional. We draw lines on our pumpkins. This is a fun way to add something extra to our pumpkins. We used green and various browns to draw our lines
We also added a few glitter cardstock pumpkins. This is a nice way to mix things up. You can also add the lines to these pumpkins as well.
Next, we put on the stem. I have several strips of green construction paper ready so they could cut their own stem for their pumpkins. We all have a different idea of what it should be.
We pulled out the yarn and cut a random amount length to use on our wreath. We tapped the start on the back. Then we wrapped them around. We tapped the yarn in random places on the back to keep the yarn loosely around the wreath. This makes a fun vine effect on the wreath.
Our final step was to glue on the pumpkins! It is always fun to see how they glue everything on to their wreaths.
