A super simple fall wreath…and it’s made from a pool noodle!!

A Super Simple Fall Wreath

 

I just made a super cute, super simple fall wreath for my back door, and I made it using items from the Dollar Tree. Even my wreath form, which is nothing other than a POOL NOODLE!

I simply bent the ends together, hot glued the ends together, and wrapped a bit of duct tape around the joint to hold it together.

I then completely wrapped the wreath frame in burlap ribbon, hot gluing it as I wrapped each piece. I used about 4 rolls of ribbon and several glue sticks.

I then affixed a pipe cleaner to the back of the wreath as a hanger, and then affixed the flowers to my wreath form.

I am terrible at making bows, so my aunt made one for me. I then attached my bow to the wreath and hung it on my porch.

Not too bad for a $12 wreath 🙂

What can you make with

Pool noodles are ridiculously cheap, and you can find them almost anywhere. And while most of us use them to float in a pool, there are many other ways you can use them as well. In today’s Pinterest roundup, I’d like to share some creative ideas for repurposing pool noodles.

You can use them to make a cheap wreath form for a lot cheaper than a foam wreath form.

You can use them to make a footstool for your house, or a faux stone column, or pool noodle luminaries.
