Patriotic Summer Pool Noodle Wreath – The Tutorial
Thank you for all the sweet love on my first ever pool noodle wreath! You guys, these wreaths are so cheap, and so easy to make! Definitely a beginner friendly craft. All you need is a pool noodle, and a few craft supplies and some scrap fabric — and I’m going to show you exactly what you need to do, for a great final result you’ll be proud to hang inside your house, or on your front door!
You Will Need –
One pool noodle. (I grabbed mine at Dollar Tree)
Some old denim/jeans.
A minimal amount of patterned scrap material.
Some stringy type stuff (you’ll see)
A sheet of white felt (only .33 cents)
A little clear packing tape
A glue gun
TO BEGIN –
Bend your pool noodle into a circle till both ends meet
Tape them together
Just FYI – Glue guns don’t work. I tried!
Grab some denim old from around the house.
If you are fresh out, run to Goodwill (or the like) for a cheap pair of jeans. I am lucky, my hubby has supplied me with several pair he has ripped beyond repair. Works out well for me!
Prep Your Denim –
Snip them at the cuff/hem and rip upwards
Get nice long stripes to work with
I made mine 3 – 4 inches wide
That is pretty general though, I certainly didn’t measure
Wrap Your Pool Noodle Wreath Base
Next, glue down a strip and start winding them around the base. I made sure all my seams were in the back when I needed to add a new strip. I started at what was going to be the top of my wreath and worked my way around.
Once you have your wreath base completely covered in fabric, you can decorate your wreath however you like.
The beauty of denim is… anything goes with jeans!!

it’s easy to follow, with lots of pictures!
How to make the mini-pennant –
I cut my gingham fabric into triangles, backed them with some white (no show-thru) felt for some oomph! and lightly glue gunned some of this stuff (bleow) across the tops to hang it by.
I kept my mini-pennant simple. You can add whatever you like to yours though!
