Back to all Today I want to share with you
With temps over 100 here I am ready for fall! (But also don’t want summer to end so there’s a dilemma.) I will start crafting fall items as I wait. I have always loved the texture of grapevine and have wanted to try shaping my own. I am pleasantly surprised by how easy it was and believe the soaking was the key to this project. I hope you give this easy beautiful DIY grapevine pumpkin door hanger a try!

Steps to make a DIY Grapevine Pumpkin Door Hanger
- First, soak your grapevine overnight or for 3-4 hours prior to crafting in hot water to help make it pliable.
- Towel dry.
- Determine the size of the door hanger you want. Mine is approximately 22” wide and 14” tall. I did not measure just played with the grapevine to see what I would like. Cut 3 pieces to form ovals, my were about 35”-40” long.
- Gather each piece and overlap about 2 – 3”, weaving the ends together then secure by wrapping with wire or jute. With one of the longer pieces I left an 8” tail to become the pumpkin stem.
- To get an oval shape you may need to temporarily wrap wire/jute around the middle and squeeze the circle into an oval. Once the grapevine dries you can remove the wire/jute.
- Lay 2 ovals next to each other, then add the third on top of them. Wrap the intersections with wire/jute.
- Decorate with floral, and wrap the pieces around the grapevine with wire/jute to secure. Another option is to seure the floral pieces with hot glue. o the bottom-right corner of the canvas.
- Add a bow using multiple ribbons or keep it simple with a solid color.
- Optional, after it dries for at least 36 hours you could cut out the center to make the wreath look more like a pumpkin. Just make sure your wraps at the intersection are secure.
I LOVE how this turned out! The colors, the texture, and the shape all speak to my pumpkin-lovin’ heart. It may or may not be hanging in my house already (in July)!
