This pool noodle wreath will be the easiest wreath you will ever create! You only need four supplies and $10 to create this wreath.
Hello, I’m Amy and I blog at amylanham.com. I love a simple project that only has a few supplies and can be quickly whipped up in a couple of minutes.
This pool noodle wreath only needs a couple of supplies, half of which you probably already have and the rest you can get for $10 or less!
How to Make a pool noodle wreath
This wreath comes together in seconds thanks to the pool noodle base. Pool noodles can usually be found at the dollar tree. Since the pool noodle is just used as the base and won’t be seen at all, you can even use an old pool noodle at the end of the season!

Pool Noodle Wreath Tips:
Use Duct Tape
I know it may be tempting to try to use a different tape to secure the pool noodle together, but duct tape really needs to be used. Most other tape won’t be strong enough and will cause the sides to slip out and the whole wreath to come apart.
Don’t let this happen, just use duct tape the first time. I wrapped about 4-6 inches on each slide of the seam. This is to ensure the wreath stays together.
Use Tinsel Garland
Tinsel garland comes in all different colors and thicknesses for a plethora of different holidays. This wreath could be created for any of the holidays without being too holiday specific. The movement of the tinsel garland will add to the wreath as it will blow with the wind.
Tinsel garland is inexpensive. The flexibility and wispy nature of tinsel garland makes it ideal for this type of project as it’s very easy to work with and shift about.
Use at least 9 feet of garland
The smallest amount of garland to use is 9 feet. The wreath won’t look as full, but it will cover the pool noodle and not show the base of the wreath. Just wrap loosely and shift the garland as you go.
If the tinsel chosen isn’t as wide or for a fuller wreath, use 2 – 9 feet garlands. This will allow you to wrap the garland closer together resulting in a fuller looking wreath.
I don’t think the wreath needs anything other than the garland and it looks fabulous. But, if you felt the need to add things, here is a list of ideas:
- Wood Words that say Welcome or Hello
- Wood Snowflake cut outs
- Wood Words Happy New Year, or other holiday greeting
- Wood Hearts
This wreath can be totally customized for any season or holiday and will make an adorable addition to your front door!
