“Moss-Covered Pool Noodle Spring Wreath”
We don’t own a pool.
I wish we owned a pool.
And a cabana.
And a hunky cabana boy bringing me little umbrella drinks
and fluffy white towels.
But, alas. No pool.
Unless you consider the Sponge Bob Kiddie Pool a “pool.”
So – why in the world would I buy not one but TWO pool noodles
at the Dollar Tree?
To make a Spring Wreath. Of course.
Yep, two noodles. In green.
Two spongy and soft tubes which could easily be
cut and shaped and taped back together.
Because what else could you use that costs a total of $2 and would
give you a large oval shape to make a wreath?
But, but, but…pool noodles don’t make pretty wreaths. Do they?
Well, they are green… but surely I could do better than a plastic,
spongey elongated squishy wreath. Couldn’t I?
Our front door was greatly hoping I could.
So I purchased a $12 package of moss sheeting…
40% off with my iPhone Michael’s app.
Then, I cut the sheeting up into approximately 6″x6″ squares.
Using my low-temp glue gun –
(low temp so it would not melt the noodles, cause I really hate
melted noodles don’t you?)
…. I attached the moss squares to the front of the wreath form.
I did not bother completely covering the entire circumference,
although you certainly could if you chose to.
This is how the front-side looks like.
Keep adding the squares until it’s completely covered.
I added an assortment of pretty Spring flowers –
Blues and pinks and yellows…
– and cute, little speckled eggs tucked here and there.
A plaid ribbon pulls together all of the colors, and a burlap mesh
ribbon adds a touch of rustic.
Yep! There’s that multi-use plaid ribbon again as seen in
And, one of my favorite Bunny friends, “Beaumont” from
last year’s Easter Mantel came out to play.
What a sweet face!
Finally – I finished the wreath with a simple burlap banner…
I will show you how simple this was to make in a few days.
Who would ever believe that under that moss-covered form are
$1 Pool Noodles?
I am in the stages of readying our Front Porch for a
Spring Wreath and Porch Link Party.
In fact, it is part of a 5-Day/5-Theme Link Party.
Come “Swing Into Spring” with The Everyday Home, along with
and Craftberry Bush.
Also, we will have 10 amazing co-hosts:
So please join us March 17th – 21st.
This wreath and several other projects will be displayed.
I call our front porch “The Little Porch that Could.”
It will be all dressed up in its Spring finery just for you.
Oh, and by the way – my goal is to do it all for $100 or less.
I would love for you to pin this project to your
favorite Pinterest Boards…
(just hover your mouse over the center of the pic)
I have a little announcement to make.
It’s a sad one for me, and one which I have given a lot
of thought to and prayed over.
As of March 15th, I will be closing
Farmhouse Decor Shop for good.
It is just becoming too stressful to do everything –
between blogging and caring for my Grandloves –
something had to go. Plus, shipping and maintaining stock
were becoming more and more difficult.
I sincerely thank each of you who have been so supportive
of this endeavor for the past year and a half.
And who knows – Farmhouse Decor may return one day.
So, if there is anything you wish to buy – now is the time.
Please use Farmhouse20% to get a 20% discount off
of your entire order! With my thanks!
