Pool Noodle Wreath Tutorial

Have you ever tried making a wreath from a pool noodle?  This cool idea is brought to us by Mae Armstrong, via Pinterest.

You can purchase pool noodles at your local Walmart or Target.   They're convenient to have for summer fun plus it's great to keep a bunch of them on hand for future wreath projects! Join the ends with silicone glue and use a painters tape to secure. Hold the ends together until the glue dries. The tape helps and it only takes about a minute.  Now wrap yarn around the pool noodle wreath.

Make sure it's completely covered. Mae likes doing this project when she’s catching up with recorded TV shoes!  Set aside and cut out the number. She used a shipping box. It's thick enough for wrapping yarn around it. 

 Wrap the coordinating yarn around the number and glue ends.  

She’s using a custom made PSA Essential stamp for this project. She designed this beautiful logo for her twin’s cookies and milk 2nd birthday party and had it made at PSA Essentials. You can have anything made into a custom stamp – just ask your local PSA dealer!  

She chose sepia ink and stamped a bunch of logos on a piece of ivory card stock. She used her sizzix circle die to cut the logo for the mini wreath pennant. Glue circle logo tags on pre-cut banners. Punch holes and thread yarn through.

 Attach banner on top of the wreath and add the number two. 

She also added a ribbon pinwheel to the design.  

All done and ready for the cookies and milk festivities! Check out all the other related posts of this great party!
