Jennifer from Brave New Home shares an inexpensive wreath making technique
DIY Pool Noodle Wreath with Brave New Home
I love making wreaths but I usually run into two major problems: styrofoam tends to break easily, so styrofoam wreaths often find a tragic ending, and jeez wreath forms are expensive!
felt fabric ribbon

Enter the pool noodle from the dollar store! For this project, I spent $1 on the pool noodle, less than $1 on felt, and $1 on ribbon.  The other fabric and supplies (like hot glue) I already had on hand.  That’s $3 for a wreath!

duck tape pool noodle into a circle

Start by duct taping your pool noodle to form a circle.  I hot glue gunned the ends together prior to taping.

mod podge doesnt work
I cut pieces of fabric and tried mod podging them on but it didn’t take (gasp!  Mod podge doesn’t work on everything?).  So I ended up hot gluing the ends.
wrapping fabric around the wreath
I frayed the edges to conform to the shape of the wreath.
folded felt for ribbon

After I covered my pool noodle, I started making ribbons from the felt.  Cut a piece of felt, fold it in half, then hot glue the ends together.

cut felt and roll into ribbon
Make little cuts along the fold then start rolling and hot gluing your ribbon together.  When you’re finished, just give your ribbon a good fluffing and voila!

To add some interest and to introduce a different texture, I added in some ribbon.
