Hi guys – When I was down in Cali I got crafty with my sister and I made this Vintage Americana Patriotic Pool Noodle Wreath! I made sure to take pictures so I could share it with you when I got home.
I left it in California, (flying really cramps my crafting/shopping style) but I would love to make one for myself. I think it would be great for all the patriotic Summer holidays when there is nothing like red, white and blue to show your American pride.
The pictures might be a little grainy, we were in deep crafting mode and I just snapped a few with my iphone. My real camera was upstairs and that was just too far away… lol!
I whipped up a few rolled fabric flowers. And burnt the #@%* out of my fingers in the process.
My sister has some old school, industrial strength glue gun.
Where as I have some wimpy, little “cool melt” glue gun.
My sister printed out this cute graphic and Mod Podged it to a little piece of wood.
I added the ball fringe (we got it at Michaels) and I glued it directly to the wreath.
They had the cutest little packs of trimmings!!
In fact… it was so cute, I ended up just knotting some on the jute twine I strung from one of the wreath to the other.
Perfect little, no-fuss banner. Done.
That’s it! Another Cheap & Easy Pool Noodle Wreath.
I love those things.
Oh. I must add my sister had the Dollar Tree pool noodle base prepped. She had already wrapped in some nubby linen fabric, and it just need to be finished up. I felt like it had a vintage flavor, so I went this way.
Is there something you would have done differently?
Added more embellishments perhaps? Or maybe less?
I tend to go simple, but sometimes wonder if they are too plain.
Oh well. Done is done.
See you all tomorrow for the Dollar Tree party!! (I hope)
