Tips and Thoughts for This Project

Two of my favorite places to buy small signs are the dollar store and the Target dollar spot (the bins at the front of the stores). They always have cute little plaques you can use as-is or re-do any way you like.

Another way to create a little sign is to buy a plaque from the craft store, paint it, and then add a vinyl saying on the top.

This pool noodle wreath is probably the best a foam summer swim toy will ever look! You can easily change up the ribbon depending on the holiday.

Instructions

  1. Start by forming your pool noodle into a circle and taping the ends together using packing or duct tape. You can keep the length as is or trim it down to create a smaller wreath before taping the ends. Gently shape the pool noodle (with your hands) into a more even circle shape.

Wrap the pool noodle with a wide burlap ribbon (mine was about 4” wide), making sure that you overlap significantly to double up the layers and hide the color. Stretch the burlap as you go around the noodle for a tighter wrap.

Once done, trim the end of the burlap strip, and hot glue it in place.

Add a burlap strip just below the center of the circle and hot glue it in place - this will serve as the background for your foliage and sign.

Thread wood beads onto a barbecue stick to create a bead trim.

Once you have determined how long you want your bead trim to be, glue the beads in place using hot glue and cut off the excess stick using heavy duty scissors or a wire cutters.

Attach the bead trim onto your sign using hot glue. I marked the back of the sign where the beads would touch the sign so I would know where to put a dab of hot glue (to avoid excess hot glue showing on the sign. Repeat with the other piece of bead trim.

Cut parts of your faux pine branch with a pair of wire cutters

Dry fit your sign by placing the elements (branch and sign) in place to see where you would need to adhere them. Remove the sign, and then glue the branches in place.

Use an ample amount to glue your sign onto the piece of burlap strip on your wreath. Let that dry.

If you find that your sign is sagging, use some barbecue sticks to reinforce it by threading it through the burlap strip and then sticking it to the side of the pool noodle wreath. This will help ease the sign’s sagging. Cover with another piece of burlap strip.

Attach a thinner strip of ribbon to the wreath to hang. You can hang using any kind of hook or Command Strip (it's very lightweight).
