Fold noodle into a circle and then use duct tape or packaging tape to hold the seam together. Below you can see my hubby holding my noodle wreath form up for me so I could get a good picture of it. At the same time he had been assembling our new porch chairs (see on my prior post). He's such a sweetie!!!
Here is the pile of craft goodies I got together to get started on my wreath. I always knew I wanted to go patriotic. I had fabrics, ribbons, thread, needles and a yard of burlap. I decided the burlap was going to cover the base of my wreath.
I cut the burlap into 12" strips and then tied it up around my wreath form with twine. I kept the twine loose fit so I could bunch the burlap to my desired look after it was all tied on.
After I was done covering my wreath form (noodle), I set out to make some denim and cotton fabric flowers. They are pretty easy to make. However, they are a little time consuming. I will post a tutorial on how to make these in the future.
I've had this patriotic bird house for about 15 years and I decided to go with a birdhouse and nest in the middle of the wreath. I laid all of my pieces on top of the wreath to get an idea of what it would look like. Then I got out my glue gun and went glue crazy!
About an hour later I was done and my masterpiece was hanging on my front door. My finished one of a kind creation is below... I just can't decide if I like it better with or without the final blue ribbon I put on it. I would love to hear your thoughts :) Please leave me a comment!
Blue Ribbon or Not ???
