Last week I had some of my nieces, sisters and mom over for a diy Christmas ornament making party. I plan to share some pictures of our day with you soon, but first I want to share what I think turned out to be the best ornament of our day. Come to think of it. This may have been the easiest to make, too! I will use my affiliate links in this post to link to related products.
I would say overall most of our diy ornaments ended up in the Pinterest-fail category but certainly not this pool noodle yarn wreath! Just wait, I’ll show some pictures soon. The multi-colored fuzzy yarn was perfect and made these look vintage!
My sister made one or two at the party and I liked them so well that I made three to share with you on my blog. The three in the top picture were made by me and each one took maybe 10 minutes each to do.
Here’s how to make your own easy diy Christmas ornament: pool noodle wreath.
First, You need a pool noodle.
You can buy these at the dollar store when they’re in season. You can view the Dollar Tree Weekly Ad here.
Next, you’re going to wrap the yarn. But, I have a tip for you first!
My time-saving, sanity-saving tip: gather a super long piece of yarn, as long as you think you need, and cut. Then loop it and you can string the whole bunch of it through the hole of the noodle all-together. This really does work!
You’re almost done! It’s that easy.
Now you can hang your pool noodle wreath ornament on your Christmas tree or use it all year long on a regular fake tree with lights like mine below. You can even make a set and give them as a gift!
You could forget the twine and just hot glue the wreath onto an already existing larger wreath to spruce it up a bit!
The sky is the limit. What other creative uses can you come up with?
