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.

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
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.)
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.
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...
And so simple to do.
That's the best, isn't it?
