Ever stared at a pool noodle and thought, “You know what? This could make an epic door wreath”? No? Just me?

Well my friends, buckle up because I’m about to share the coolest pool noodle wreath with you – a craft so fun and easy, you’ll wonder why you’ve been spending money on fancy door decor all these years.

First off, let’s address the elephant in the room: Yes, we’re using a pool noodle. That squishy, floaty tube you never thought would see the light of day outside of a swimming pool is about to become the star of your home decor.

And the best part? You can snag one from Dollar Tree. That’s right, for just a buck, you’re on your way to creating a masterpiece.

Now, you might be thinking, “But I have no crafting skills!”. If you can use scissors without injuring yourself and operate a glue gun without adhering your fingers together, you’re overqualified for this project. We’re talking beginner level, easy-peasy, lemon squeezy.

We’re not just slapping a noodle on your door and calling it a day. Oh no, we’re going to jazz it up with burlap for a bit of rustic charm.

Throw in some faux pine branches because, why not? Add a dash of hot glue, a sprinkle of wood beads, and voila – you’ve got yourself a DIY wreath that screams, “Look at me, I’m crafty and I know it!”

And here’s the kicker: once you’re done, you get to brag about how you turned a pool noodle into a work of art. Your neighbors and friends will be at least mildly impressed, which in my book, is a win.

Who said pool noodles were just for summer? Let’s make a wreath that not only spruces up your entryway but also serves as a hilarious conversation starter. Because, at the end of the day, if we’re not laughing, are we even crafting?

Gather These Supplies

  • Pool noodle
  • Packing tape (or duct tape)
  • Wide burlap ribbon
  • Smaller ribbon to hang
  • Faux pine branches
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Wood beads
  • Barbecue stick
  • Wire cutter
  • Scissors
  • Ready-made sign

Tips and Thoughts for This Project

Two of my favorite places to buy small signs are the dollar store and the Target dollar spot (the bins at the front of the stores). They always have cute little plaques you can use as-is or re-do any way you like.

Another way to create a little sign is to buy a plaque from the craft store, paint it, and then add a vinyl saying on the top.
