Mini Floral Wire Pumpkins - pumpkins arranged with some greeneryThis a cute and cheap pumpkin craft especially for the autumn months. You can get a package of floral wire for 99 cents and make a pumpkin or two from one spool. Enjoy!


Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 to 4 wire pumpkins


  • 2 packages of 6ft 1.8m floral wire
  • wooden spoon or anything cylindrical
  • wire cutters (optional)
Mini Floral Wire Pumpkins - two packages of wire


  1. Remove the floral wire from the packaging, but do not discard the twist ties.
  2. Mini Floral Wire Pumpkins - remove wire from package and keep ties
  3. Unravel the floral wire.
  4. Mini Floral Wire Pumpkins - unwind wire
  5. Start wrapping the floral wire firmly around the circular handle of the wooden spoon (or whatever cylinder you're using). Keep going until you've wrapped the whole thing.
  6. Mini Floral Wire Pumpkins - wrap wire tightly around the spoon handle or cylinder of your choice
    Mini Floral Wire Pumpkins - continue until you have used the entire length of the wire

  7. Gently pull the wire off from the cylinder as not to let it lose its spring shape.
  8. Mini Floral Wire Pumpkins - gently remove the wire from the handle
  9. If you'd like to make 2 mini pumpkins from one piece of wire, use wire cutters to snip the coil in half.

  11. Gently mold the spring so it's donut shaped, getting the two ends to meet.

  15. To make a bigger pumpkin, use a cylinder with a larger radius. I used a cardboard tube from the inside of a roll of wrapping paper.

  17. For a bigger pumpkin, use two twist ties for the stem.
