The end of summer is always so bittersweet. I personally don’t like to see the warm weather go, but the anticipation of the crisp fall season is exciting.
One thing I noticed is how much summer stuff we have to put into storage. It’s the annual merry-go-round of seasonal bins.
Before you pack away everything, here’s how you can reuse the classic pool noodle to create a DIY fall wreath for your home’s autumn decor.
DIY Autumn Wreath
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A pool noodle
- Duck Tape – any color
- Fabric in your choice of pattern
- Sewing pins
- Artificial leaf garland
Taking a piece of duct tape, connect the two ends of the pool noodle together to form a complete circle.
Stretch out the fabric. Using the scissors, cut about four equal strips that are 2 – 3 inches in width. Start wrapping the pool noodle, making sure the fabric covers the tape.
Use the sewing pins to secure the end pieces of each fabric strip. Continue wrapping the strips around, pinning as you go until the entire wreath is covered.
Take a couple leaves off of the artificial garland. They should just pop right off of the fake stems. Use two pins to attach them to the wreath. Arrange a couple of the leaves in a cluster, pinning the centers. Bend the stems and leaves until you get the look you want.
This DIY fall wreath is probably the best a pool noodle will ever look! You can easily change up the fabric depending on the holiday.
