Rustic Burlap Christmas Wreath

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas, don’t you agree? I gotta tell ya, I’m so super excited making most of my home Christmas decor by myself. I’m all about rustic this year so there is a lot of twine, burlap, plaid, and even yarn LOL. OH I forgot, and A LOT of glitter too! It’s not Christmas if there is no glitter everywhere, right? Today I’m excited to show you all my Rustic Burlap Christmas Wreath that I made using a lot of burlap ribbon and a pool noodle. Yup, you hear that right! I used a POOL NOODLE!

So, here’s the story. I’m not a USA resident or citizen and for some reason finding a wreath foam form was really impossible here. So I started to sniff around internet and Pinterest {mostly} and since I had read long time ago that we could make a wreath out of a pool noodle I did my research. Have you seen how many things we can make with that thing? It’s about to become my new favorite craft supply LOL.

Anyway, back to the point…

I found this site in which Carrie shows how to make a pool noodle wreath. She explains it all with such detail, I knew right away I could make this! I can find pool noodles here anytime of the year and it was so cheap.

I saved over $10 by not buying it online and buying that pool noodle that cost me around $1,50.

The best part?

I can just take off Christmas decor and cover it with Spring, Valentine, Easter, summer… You name it!

For this Wreath I didn’t use any pin or anything that would pinch the foam form. I used twine to secure everything and it turned out so pretty.

I must confess, I might be the only crazy lady in this condo with a wreath on the door LOL. But I so LOVE it! Who knows, maybe I inspire people to start doing it!

So, ok Let’s see how I made my Rustic Burlap Christmas Wreath, shall we?

Supplies:

  • A pool noodle.
  • A small piece of hose {wide enough so it would fit inside the pool noodle}
  • Duct tape
  • Light beige burlap ribbon {about 2.5 inches wide}
  • Natural burlap ribbon {about 2.5 inches wide}
  • Twine
  • A Burlap Bow
  • 4 Rustic burlap flower spray decor {or anything you love}
  • 2 pinecone spray decor
  • Plaid Ribbon {about 2 Inches wide}
  • Any decoration you love to hang inside.

Since the pool noodle is used to being straight, you need to train it to go in a circle. To do this, you just need to bend it. I had a little one help you you just how easy it is. Just bend it one way and another, being careful not to make creases or kinks. You might need an extra pair of hands for this though!

I decided to give it time so I created kind of a spiral and place it inside a box where it fit and left it for a couple days.

Once the pool noodle is retrained, you are ready to put it all together.

Insert the hose piece into the pool noodle on both ends and make both pool noodle ends meet.

Work it bit so it gets as circular as possible.
