Ornament Wreath

6 Materials
2 Hours
Hooray for more holiday treats! I am sure you have seen a good ornament wreath before, but why not make one exactly the size and colors that you want? This ornament wreath is not only super customizable, but super easy too! You only need some pool noodles (YES, POOL NOODLES), ornaments, loads of hot glue and dried greenery to create this beauty! Add some lights for a pretty glow and you are seriously set for a nice mantle piece.
SUPPLIES: -2 Pool Noodles -Hot Glue -Duct Tape -Ornaments (LOADS of THEM - I suggest getting several of the large tubs from Wal-Mart... I used 2.5 tubs for a 30" diameter wreath... If you are going smaller you obviously don't need as many) -Dried Greenery (Eucalyptus is a good one to go with) -Battery Powered Lights
STEP 1: Take 2 pool noodles and tape two ends together with duct tape. (Tape liberally)

STEP 2: Shape your noodles into a circle and cut to the size you want your wreath to be. (A bread knife slices right through!) You can use the entire length if you want a gigantic wreath! Once you have the size you want tape the two open ends of the noodles together to enclose the circle.
STEP 3: Hot glue large ornaments to the outside of the noodle ring you have created being sure to give variety to the order.
STEP 4: Hot glue ornaments to the inner edge of the circle in the same manner.
STEP 5: Once the outsides of your noodle are covered it is time to pile ornaments on the top of the noodle to cover up the noodle entirely. You can fill in small spaces with smaller ornaments.
STEP 6: Fill all the cracks and crevices with dried greenery. I used eucalyptus because it lasts. This way I don't have to replace the greens every year. Glue them into place so they don't fall out of place. Make sure to cover up any parts of the noodles that are still showing.
STEP 7: Take a small wired battery powered light strand and wrap it around the ornaments and through the greens.
This thing is honestly better looking than I expected! I love how the lights gleam against the ornaments (not that you can see that as well in a picture, but trust me it's lovely)
I mean this is seriously making me Holiday hungry! I want to bake some cookies or something!
This one is a bit on the fancy side, but I kind of want to make one that is whimsical now! How fun would this be in bright greens, pinks and blues with some craspedia throughout it?!?

    How do you conceal and secure the battery box that the lights are attached to so it doesn't show and so you have easy access to turning lights on and off?? I am always using this type of lights and it's hard to conceal and have easy access to the box. This is absolutely gorgeous!!!!

    • I make sure the box is front and center on the inside of the wreath. Hide it with a leaf , foliage, garland, whatever you are using as embellishment.

    • Sch8226590 Sch8226590 on Nov 05, 2016
      Thank you for your help....I am getting right on this!!! This is beautiful! Oh, do you attach with a little piece of velcro or tie it on with some twine???

  • Cheryl Leddington Cheryl Leddington on Oct 28, 2016
    Does it hold up outside?

    • RoseMary Wells RoseMary Wells on Oct 28, 2016
      It would depend on what kind of ornaments you bought! If you bought the plastic ones made for the outside, it would work anywhere. The eucalyptus might get moldy if it is outside and unprotected (faux eucalyptus from craft store - Michael's, Joanne's, etc is pretty and would not mold from moisture). If you use glass ornaments, probably inside is the best option.

    • Jan Jan on Oct 28, 2016
      Also, if you live in cold weather areas there's a chance the hot glue will let go if it gets too cold.

  • Robin Robin on Oct 28, 2016
    Can the noodle be painted as to ensure the blue (or other color) doesn't show through? Silver/metallic in the case of your wreath?

    • Jmorante Jmorante on Oct 28, 2016
      yes I would spray paint or paint it silver or gold before gluing anything. make sure its totally dry first before gluing

    • Eil13747380 Eil13747380 on Oct 28, 2016
      Maybe it's easier to buy a light green noodle. Another idea would be to wrap the noodle in fabric such as felt.

    • Kitty McCarty Kitty McCarty on Oct 28, 2016
      could also wrap the noodle in tin foil...

    • Donna Donna on Oct 28, 2016
      I had the same thought as Robin - spray painting the noodle to match the wreath. I've never spray painted styrofoam - dumb question to most probably but does styrofoam spray okay, i.e. does the paint adhere?

    • Kb Kb on Oct 28, 2016
      If the noodles are truly styrofoam, like meat trays, then NO, they do not spray paint well...they melt. But that is my only styrofoam experience-- trying to spray paint sculpture bases for second graders. We changed to wood scraps :) after that experiment. BTW, the wreath is gorgeous as long as the heavily decorated noodles maintain their circular shape when hung.

    • Carol Singleton Carol Singleton on Oct 28, 2016
      You could also wrap the noodle with ribbon that worked for your theme.

    • Elaine Seibert Jackson Elaine Seibert Jackson on Oct 28, 2016
      As far as spray painting Styrofoam, thee is a special spray paint in the craft supply stores that can be used. Just ask for it in the store.

    • Lorna Wagner Hannett Lorna Wagner Hannett on Oct 28, 2016
      Kb...perhaps you could run a piece of heavy wire (like coat hanger) through the middle of the noodle to help keep it's shape.

    • Debbie Debbie on Oct 28, 2016
      I'm thinking you could wrap twine or burlap or deco mesh around it

    • Creatress Creatress on Oct 29, 2016
      I spray painted that foam insulation (that's made for pipes), which is similar to the noodles....and the paint peeled off. It may work if you mix textile medium with acrylic (metallic) paint, and brush it on.

    • Janice Janice on Oct 30, 2016
      I will be using the pipe insulation covers. The dark grey is a good background color for my theme. No painting! I can't wait to get started:)

  • Deborah Deborah on Oct 28, 2016
    How did you secure the base of the battery operated string of lights to the wreath? Also, where did you obtain them? Lovely wreath!

  • Maureen  Hardie Maureen Hardie on Oct 28, 2016
    What is crespedia (sp)?

    • Jack T Bridges Jack T Bridges on Oct 28, 2016
      A variety of flowers from the Daisy family known as billy buttons and woollyheads. Native to Australia and New Zealand.

    • Nina Morris Goodson Nina Morris Goodson on Oct 28, 2016
      A type of flower that looks like yellow balls. I think they are also called Billy Buttons.

  • Jo Jo on Oct 28, 2016
    Will the glue hold in the outside Florida sun?

    • Tigerleatoo Tigerleatoo on Oct 28, 2016
      Hot glue does not hold in the Arizona sun. I use E6000 on anything I am putting outdoors.

    • Debra Debra on Oct 28, 2016
      I have used Hot glue on projects for my front door which gets all day sunlight here in VA. I would not use the low temp glue. That would not hold.

  • Tish Tish on Oct 28, 2016
    Does the pool noodle hold a circular shape against the weight of all the ornaments? I can imagine with that many ornaments even plastic ones they will get heavy and pull the noodle out of shape.

    • Calypse Calypse on Oct 28, 2016
      I´m wondering as well. I made a smaller wreath for my daughter, that I wrapped with a feather boa. It started sagging within a month!

    • Debra Debra on Oct 28, 2016
      Looks like it is, but if you are worried about it you might be able to put heavy gauge wire in the center to help hold the shape.

    • Shirley Shirley on Oct 29, 2016
      Amanda, have u hung ur wreath yet? If so, has urs started sagging? I would hate to take so much time making this and it start sagging. I decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving and it stays up till Jan 2.

    • Tish Tish on Oct 29, 2016
      I haven't made mine yet. I was thinking like you Amanda, hate to go to all that work and it sag. But I have been thinking about it two thoughts came to mind. The orinaments might act as key stones and support their own weight. I also thought I would add clear fishing line. Add it at the top then form a triangle. I was planning on doing this before adding the orinaments and the filler should help hide the fishing line. But, the fishing line should hard to see anyway. What do you think? Think it would work?

    • Kathy Martin Kathy Martin on Oct 29, 2016
      I have made a couple of these and yes they do sag. We bought rebar, used to reinforce concrete. 10 ft. For about 3.00. Bend it into a circle and run it thru the middle of the pool noodle. Secure the ends together with wire. This has made a big difference, no sagging on a 42" round wreath that I made a month ago.

    • Chi7445269 Chi7445269 on Oct 30, 2016
      I really like your rebar idea, Kathy, but how do you bend rebar into a circle? Thx!

    • Robin Robin on Oct 30, 2016
      I used foam pipe wrap instead of a pool noodle and put it around a hula hoop. No sagging!

    • Barbara Holloway Barbara Holloway on Oct 30, 2016
      I have used a hula hoop and have wrapped the pool noodle around the hoop for extra support

    • Kathy Martin Kathy Martin on Oct 30, 2016
      Chilling11, my husband bent it for me, it was fairly easy. Just put your foot on top to hold it down and gradually bend it into shape. You could make a template to bend it around also.

    • Cha13970264 Cha13970264 on Oct 30, 2016
      You might be able to use a round wire wreath form. Slit the noodle and put it around the form. Then tape or hot glue the ends to secure it.

    • Lauren Kay Weber Lauren Kay Weber on Oct 30, 2016
      I noticed sagging and an oval shape on mine before adding the decor to it. I wrapped the noodle in 2-3 layers of duct tape and that seemed to reinforce it enough to make it circular. Mine's been up for nearly two months on the front door and still looks perfectly circular.

    • Karen Davidson Helton Karen Davidson Helton on Oct 30, 2016
      Yes it will sag!! I used a pool noodle and wrapped with only yarn and it sagged. Would most defiantly have to reinforce with something!!

    • Elizabeth Dion Elizabeth Dion on Oct 30, 2016
      Made one and it sagged badly!

    • Becky Condreay Becky Condreay on Oct 31, 2016
      The hula hoop sounds a lot easier, but I was thinking about something I already have, wire hangers. I would probably need to use/twist 2 together and probably make the wreath about the linear length of 2 hangers long as well. So yay, I can get rid of 4 wire hangers.

    • Nia McClendon Nia McClendon on Nov 07, 2016
      They sag. I made one last year.

  • Dl.5660408 Dl.5660408 on Oct 28, 2016
    The wreath is absolutely lovely! We're the ornaments glass or plastic that you used? I know either could work but wondered which you used. There were none on the back, correct?

    • Janette A Janette A on Oct 30, 2016
      None on the back so that it can lay flat against the wall. I believe she used plastic ornaments that wallmart sells in large containers.

    • Elainr Elainr on Oct 30, 2016
      Dollar General also sells plastic ornaments

    • Shirley Shirley on Nov 01, 2016
      Dollar Tree has pretty ornaments too!

  • Jart37 Jart37 on Oct 29, 2016
    I have ornaments that were used outside and the colors washed off, these are the very thin very sharp material when broken. Can I color these with any paint? Am I stuck with Mod Podge and glitter?

  • Dainne Jeffries Dainne Jeffries on Oct 30, 2016
    I would love to see someone take that pool noodle and without bendind it make a wreath for a bean that runs across the ceing as a supporting bean and is just awful looking please help

    • Michele Clark Michele Clark on Oct 31, 2016
      Maybe you are wanting a spray or a swag...a wreath is usually circular. Just take a noodle or two or more and add flowers and greenery to it on one side and attach to your beam.

    • Sandy Fowler Sandy Fowler on Nov 06, 2016
      Years ago, we made swags of greenery & draped it across the beams on our ceiling. We tied puffy red bows at each point. It was beautiful even on our 8ft ceilings. On 9 or 10 foot ceilings, it would even be nicer, & not such a closed in feeling. We did this 6 or 7 years, then redid the room& removed the beams.

    • Terrie Holmes Terrie Holmes on Nov 09, 2016
      I believe you mean a beam.... it sounds like a good idea.

  • Bz Bz on Nov 03, 2016
    When I try to make a wreath out of a pool noodle the hot glue dissolved the pool noodle. It melted. I had to discard it.

    • I use hat pins or "t" pins, plus you can dis assemble and reuse everything on another project.

    • Glhill Glhill on Nov 05, 2016
      Barbara, try a lower heat glue

    • A A on Nov 08, 2016
      I wrapped mine with HVAC foil tape and that should work well with the glue gun. But, I do think you should try a lower heat as Barbara suggested and I plan to use pins or flower pics on mine. I can puncture a small hole through the foil with a T pin and then easily insert a flower pic (some flower pics are not very sharp on the end).

  • Victor Victor on Nov 08, 2016
    where do i get the lights that you used? and how much does it cost?

    • Carol Liedka Carol Liedka on Nov 08, 2016
      I picked up a package of small lights at BJ's the other day. It was a 4 pack of tiny lights each one had 25 lights per string. $9.99. Be sure to get some batteries too lol

    • Victor Victor on Nov 09, 2016
      i think we live in diff states because ive never eard f bjs . lol i did some h myself and found some n target and walmart .. thank you though!!

    • Connie Miks Connie Miks on Nov 09, 2016
      The dollar store has them now too the lights .

    • Jean Stevens Jean Stevens on Nov 13, 2016
      Yes, Dollar Tree has the lights, but I think they are 10 or 12.

  • Barbara Goulet Barbara Goulet on Nov 09, 2016
    What are the "tubs" of ornaments? You used 2.5, how many in a "tub" ?

  • Allison G Ortiz Allison G Ortiz on Nov 09, 2016
    Did you take off the metal tabs first??

    • Amanda C, Hometalk Team Amanda C, Hometalk Team on Nov 10, 2016
      The ornaments I bought didn't have metal tabs for some reason, but I don't know that it would matter either way if they were left on or taken off.

    • Jean Stevens Jean Stevens on Nov 13, 2016
      Taking the tabs off would leave less space to fill in after all the bulbs are glued on.

  • Pat Walker Pat Walker on Nov 10, 2016

    • Lane Goetsch Lane Goetsch on Nov 14, 2016
      I like to make hangers out of Jiffy pop popcorn aluminum wire handles. It's easy to shape & flexible. Do it before gluing & you can wrap it around the noodle. Or use an ice pick to poke a hole and thread the wire through. Either way, secure both ends.

  • Jean Stevens Jean Stevens on Nov 13, 2016
    I glued about three uncut noodles, and they all came apart. I bought new tape, and the same thing happened. Was it because I didn't make them smaller? Thank you.

    • Ben Wilson Ben Wilson on Nov 13, 2016
      Use strong duct tape

    • Jean Stevens Jean Stevens on Nov 13, 2016
      It did say heavy-duty. I will try again, and this time use more . Thanks.

    • Amanda C, Hometalk Team Amanda C, Hometalk Team on Nov 13, 2016
      Some have said for larger ones to make a circular cardboard cutout and glue it to the back for extra stability. I know various noodles are different and of course various size wreaths will have different weights so wrapping the entire thing in duct tape and backing it with the cardboard may help for an extra large one!

    • Blu Roberts Blu Roberts on Nov 29, 2016
      I used the gorilla black tape over electrical tape

    • Linda Leek Linda Leek on Dec 25, 2016
      I would say if the ornaments fell off us those floral pins they would look good I make for Easter and use Easter eggs glue then to a wreath that is made out of straw then in between pin the grassy stuff pin that in between the eggs it's really cute I bought the reall cheap eggs and the kept coming undone. So next time I would use eggs from micheals instead of the dollar store

  • Shelley Hooks Pennington Shelley Hooks Pennington on Dec 07, 2016
    My ornaments keep falling off any suggestions.

    • Amanda C, Hometalk Team Amanda C, Hometalk Team on Dec 08, 2016
      Many people have mentioned using HVAC tape because the glue wasn't working with the type of pool noodles they had. Perhaps wrapping the noodle in HVAC tape and then glueing on top of that.

    • MikeandDebbie MikeandDebbie on Dec 10, 2016
      What is HVAC tape? I know this is air conditioning but wondered if you were talking about duct tape? You could always wrap with white material.

    • A A on Dec 11, 2016
      Not duct tape. Home Depot calls it Multi Purpose Foil Tape and it's a good price there. I've posted a pic. I used this tape for my second noodle wreath (1 noodle per wreath) and it took the whole roll. Just so you know, I did not glue the decorations. I used picks and pushed them in as far as I could without coming out the other side. So far, I've seen them swing in the breeze and have not lost anything.

    • Linda Leek Linda Leek on Dec 25, 2016
      Use floral pins to stick ur ornaments the tape to hold the ends together probably dries out so I would use tape and the floral pins also u could also us floral wire the tape then use the pins

    • Rita Rita on Aug 16, 2017
      Why not wrap it in burlap? Glue will certainly stick to that!

    • Mar26636296 Mar26636296 on Sep 22, 2017
      I used knitting yarn to wrap around the noodle before gluing balls on and it worked out great .u can get some nice sparkly yarn which make any gaps look good

  • Mary Valentine Murphy Mary Valentine Murphy on Jul 23, 2017
    can this wreath be made for outdoor use?

  • Sheila Long McKee Sheila Long McKee on Sep 25, 2017
    I can't use hot glue to hang it on my front door. Any suggestions?

    • Donna Wyman Donna Wyman on Oct 04, 2017
      Wrap a piece of wire around the noodle before covering it with the ornaments, make sure it is long enough to make a hanging loop on the back side, just twist the wire ends together a few times to close the wire and make your hanging loop, it works like a charm. This noodle wreath works well with artificial flowers too!

  • Susan Quade Susan Quade on Oct 28, 2017
    What glue do you use. Some glues won’t hold in cold !

  • Christine Cener Christine Cener on Oct 31, 2017
    I'm having fits trying to pick a noodle! LOL. I want stability and strength because I will be using all kinds of ornaments, not just balls. Do you recommend a solid core noodle or hollow core? Thanks - this is gorgeous!

  • Christine Cener Christine Cener on Oct 31, 2017
    I'm wondering about whether to use a solid-core noodle (for strength) or a hollow-core noodle (for flexibility to make the circle). I want strength cause I'll be using all kinds of ornament, not just Christmas balls. Will solid core bend enough to make a circle? I appreciate your skill and your help!

    • Nonni Nonni on May 15, 2018

      I don't know about the noodles. But I would wire heavy ornaments on the noodle. If a solid noodle won't bend, I would try cutting short "V" shapes on the inside of the curve (like clipping curved seams in sewing).

    • Tony Ive Tony Ive on May 18, 2018

      I don't really know what "pool noodles" are. I'm in the UK. However, they look very much to me like pipe insulation that come in quite long lengths, possibly three or four feet long.

      The internal part of this made to take specific sizes of copper tube, providing you have, or can get access to a "pipe bender", you can make your solid circle without adding a lot of weight.

      Decide on the size of circle you want, let's say 2 feet diameter to the centre of the noodle. Multiply this by 3, that's the length of the copper tube you want. You'll also need a 45 degree "solder elbow" to join the two ends of the pipe together. You can fix the joint with super glue, no need for solder.

      Before you make the joint, work the noodle over the pipe and cut it about 2 inches too long, this will allow you to cut to size when the joint is fixed. The slight distortion where the elbow occurs will be hardly seen.

      You could also use plastic plumbing pipe instead of copper, it just depends on how rigid you want your wreath to be.

  • Gina Gutierrez Gina Gutierrez on Dec 03, 2017
    Beautiful! but could you paint the noodle to whatever color ornaments your going to use? just curious?

    • Nonni Nonni on May 15, 2018

      Sure you could. Just use acrylic paint so it will stick. An alternative would be to cover it with an appropriate color of duct tape.

    • Gina Gutierrez Gina Gutierrez on May 16, 2018


    • Anita Anita on May 31, 2018

      Yes. Use acrylic paint and make sure the paint is cured/dried totally through before putting it together.

  • Michelle Roehrer-Simpson Michelle Roehrer-Simpson on Jul 08, 2018

    That's a beautiful idea! I just wonder if the pool noodle would "sag" if the ornaments and decorations are too heavy.

    • Tak33869998 Tak33869998 on Jul 31, 2018

      No.its steady enough to hold them all.i used plastic ornaments and my only fear was taping the noodle together.so use plenty of tape so it don't pop apart on ya...

    • Pat Hubbard Pat Hubbard on Oct 28, 2018

      If you are worried about it sagging maybe you could string some wire through the noodle for extra support. Just a thought.

    • Jane Burgett Jane Burgett on Dec 02, 2018

      They do sag. I made two several years ago and they went from a round to an oval and into a pear shape. They don't hold their shape.

    • Meg Meg on Dec 22, 2018

      I made one - it definitely sags after time.

    • Jane prey Jane prey on Dec 22, 2018

      Also had the ornaments fall off since the wreath face some direct sunlight.

  • Amy Amy on Sep 21, 2018

    When I taped my pool noodles together, they came apart after a few days. Is there a trick to getting enough duct tape on them to make them hold?

    • Ginny Ginny on Nov 22, 2018

      Hi I've tried this and I hot glued pool noodles together before I taped them seemed to work

      Good luck on yours

    • Ginny Ginny on Nov 22, 2018

      Tried it hot glue them together first then tape them seemed to work

    • Sue Sue on Dec 12, 2018

      You can also use staples, force wire through to attach, or use an extra little piece of foam (6" x 1") and pin ends to each noodle end for extra reinforcement. The smaller/tighter the circle, the more force there will be to pull it apart.

    • T rex tape is good stuff

    • Diane Bieganowski Diane Bieganowski on Dec 22, 2018

      Maybe a hoola hoop would fit inside the noodles to hold it in shape for the larger wreaths?

  • Lit34313960 Lit34313960 on Oct 31, 2018

    Is it possible to hang outside?

  • Joanie Joanie on Dec 22, 2018

    This is a beautiful wreath......It is calling for a pretty Bow to complete it......Maybe a red one?  I need a little color.

  • Christine Christine on Dec 22, 2018

    I have tried to make wreaths using soft items like pool noodles and pipe insulation. I find that they are not strong enough to support the weight and tend to sag so that they are no longer circular. How do you counteract this problem?

    • Lynnette Bowden Lynnette Bowden on Dec 22, 2018

      If you use the plastic shatterproof ornaments instead of glass or clay or resin, the weight will not misshape a pool noodle. Also you can take wire coat hangers and straighten them out and run up the middle/inside of a pool noodle too to help keep its shape.

    • Christy Christy on Dec 22, 2018

      I agree with lynnette, use old wire hangers inside the pool noodle. The wire hangers also can be used as the hook to hang the wreath from the wall/door ect. Use a pair of wire cutters and before hot gluing the ornaments to the noodle, wrap the cut piece of wire coat hanger around the noodle and shape into either a circle or hook. Then apply ornaments with hot glue and finish as previously instructed.

    • Gail Gail on Dec 22, 2018

      I have not been successful with having hot glue hold things that well. I would like to do this in a tree form and use my old meaningful ornaments and not have a tree. Just afraid they would fall off.

    • Chris Ann Hanousek Chris Ann Hanousek on Dec 22, 2018

      Same here. Must downsize. Want a way to save and display meaning -ful ornaments out kids and grandkids made. Wasn't to do it so the ornaments won't brake or fall.

    • Gail Hoak Gail Hoak on Dec 22, 2018

      Hula hoops. I cut the hula hoop and slid the pool noodle onto the hoop. Hula hoops come in a lot of different sizes and this works like a charm for supporting the noodle and all the ornaments you want to glue on the noodle.

    • Bzm11686139 Bzm11686139 on Dec 23, 2018

      I think that the glued-on ornaments will add a certain amount of rigidity to the pool noodle, especially if you glue them to each other as well as to the noodle.

    • Tanne Tanne on Dec 28, 2018

      Reply to miss gail: how right you are hulu hoops are the way too go. Thanks bunches

    • Mellissa Mellissa on Dec 31, 2018

      For those ladies wanting to keep and display some special ornaments, I just discovered the "wall tree." I'm already planning this for next year. It will make my life so much easier. I imagine as the popularity grows, more sizes will be available.

      Piece of wire inside the noodle!

    Fantastic job! I will definitely make this + the dollar store had some incredible ornaments, too...I wonder if after hot gluing you could use liquid glue, too and then put the wreath outside?

      Use E6000 glue, it can hold up in any weather conditions.

      i think it is a great project to do for the outside fence

    Just saw this after Christmas but so great! I'm new to glue guns- are there different temps that won't melt plastic noodle? Also, if you wrap noodle or even spray paint you wouldn't have to fill in every gap- although yours was gorgeous and full, I tend to skimp...

    When it freezes out, are those ornaments going to snap off??!!!

      Yes, more than likley. That is why I don't like to use hot glue gun. I use STRONG epoxy glue and never have to worry about that.

    • Hot glue pellets that you melt in an electric pot and paint on or apply with a wooden tongue depressor, paint stir stick or similar item are supposed to be weather proof. Haven't tried using a silicon spatula but I believe that would work as an applicator as well. In hot climates this is good on door wreaths where the heat from the sun can cause things to pop off.

    I love it 😍

    I'm going to make one tonight.

    And I agree 1 with blues , pinks, greens, and unusual ornaments would also look amazing. I'm going to do both .

    Thank you so much for such a fantastic idea.
