Pool Noodles & Burlap

I've hopped on the Pool Noodle Wreath bandwagon.

What a fantastic idea! 





And since I've really gotten away from doing crafts and mainly have just been working on furniture, 
this simple and easy craft was an awesome instant gratification pick-me-up.

Just the way I like it.

Couple of hours.

Done.

Plus... 
Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage 
along with 
Debbie at Debbiedoo's 
Jessica at Mom4Real 
and 
Debbie from reFresh reStyle 
are all hosting a Pool Noodle Wreath Party next month!

I hope I'm not breaking blogging etiquette by revealing this so early, but I loved it so much that 
I just simply couldn't wait.  

I have no will power.  :P 


Fox Hollow Cottage

This is enough motivation for me!

(Especially since I've been a bad blogger friend and have never linked up to one of Shan's parties.)

Be sure and link up, peeps!

So yesterday, I got the pool noodle fevah (as Shannon puts it) and got to work.

I won't go into detail of how I did it, since I straight-up copied Shannon 
and you can find her tutorial HERE.

Pretty much, I just grabbed stuff I had laying around the house, after I purchased my pool noodle from Wally World.

A wreath is a GREAT spot to show off 
your most favorite things all in one spot.

Burlap...


hydrangeas, ribbons, and cloth rosettes made from an old bed skirt.


And of course my go-to:  blue Ball Jars


Add in a little decorative nest...


and a vintage spoon Scott found in the ground while taking down trees at his parents, paired with an antique tag that I found while cleaning out the "potting shed".


Throw it all together and glue with a glue gun and you wind up with my interpretation of the famous...


Love it.

And so simple to do.

That's the best, isn't it?

XO,

It's so pretty Laura! I've always wanted to try this. Question for you....what did you use to stick the two ends together? It seems as if they'd rip apart. I love the burlap around it. So cute.
