Learn how to use a Dollar Tree pool noodle to create a beautiful new Summer Wreath for your home! With a few simple supplies we will make a fun wreath to tell everyone you are ready for Summer…
You Will Need...
- One wreath base or pool noodle (in stock again at Dollar Tree!)
- Tape if using pool noodle to connect ends
- 3/4 to One yard fabric of your choice to cover the wreath base
- Fabric scraps or quilter's fabric quarters for flowers (I found mine at Hancock Fabrics!)
- Hot glue
- Pinking shears (optional)
Directions: Begin by cutting (or tearing) fabric in 4" wide strips, wrapping the strips around the wreath, gluing each end down as you wrap and overlap each strip of fabric to cover base. Next set aside a small strip of fabric to glue on the wreath back to create a hanger by gluing ends down on the back. To make the flowers, I used three packages of yellow quilter's quarters, cutting them into 2" strips, rolling each around in a circle (see pictures) and using dots of hot glue to hold in place. For the blue flowers, I used quilter's quarters as well, and cut 4" round circles with my pinking shears. To make each blue flower, I folded each circle in half, pinched and glued the fabric to create a petal shape, then glued 4-5 of them together in a circle. I used contrasting (base) fabric for the center of each flower, making a smaller rolled flower like the yellow roses. Arranging the flowers on both sides of the wreath, I used dots of hot glue to secure each to the wreath base.
