DIY Fall Wreath Tips
Looking for some quick and easy fall wreath supplies and what you’ll need to get going? Here are some of the essentials, and some instructions.
Your DIY Fall Wreath Guide – First Things First
To begin, you will want to fold the pool noodle down so that it form a donut like circle. The best way to connect to two ends is to either use some of wire you have and hook them together in any way you see fit or by stapling the edges of each end together.
You can also use duct or electrical tape (the linked video is super helpful) to secure the edges tightly together! It is imperative that the donut shape is secure or else your entire wreath will come apart.
The noodle can then be covered in burlap or pieces of black or dark brown fabric if you want here, but it is not necessary. You can also avoid this by purchasing a dark color noodle! Once you have the noodle firmly rounded you can begin the actually decorating!
Bunching and Wrapping
Take your ribbon and form bunches around the face of the noodle. As you form each bunch and prepare for a new one, take your wire and wrap the flat spaces between the bunches very tightly several times around the entire noodle, so that the bunches you formed stay in place.
You can do this process 2-3 times, forming bunches and wraps at your discretion and where it is ascetically pleasing to the eye.
Once you have your desired number of ribbon on your wreath, use the same technique to incorporate your decoratives (pumpkins, flowers, etc.) into the spaces between the bunches. Use the wire to attach these items the same way you secured the ribbon to the noodle.
You can get as creative and personal with this process as you want! The only requirements is to make sure each item is on the noodle securely.
Additionally, you can attach small decorative signs to the center of the wreath or small characters. The great thing about this wreath making process is you can repeat it for every season.
Children can easily get involved in the creation of your wreath, or even make one of their own to hang on their bedroom door or somewhere in the heart of your home.
