I am going to show you how to make a beautiful wreath for about $20! And it only takes about 2 hours to make. Things you need are a pool noodle, lots of fake flowers, tape, scissors, and some sort of statement decoration. All of these items can be purchased from the Dollar Store, so it makes the wreath even cheaper!
The first thing you need to do it make the pool noodle into a wreath.  Just make it a circle and use tape to keep it in place.  I had to use packing tape to make sure that it would stay in place.
Then I started placing flowers.  I wasn’t sure how it was going to work exactly, but I thought that the easiest way would be to cut the wire to stick in the noodle.  So, after a little bit of work trying to figure out the easiest way to cut the flowers, using a wire cutter, I was able to get started on my wreath. I didn’t fill in the back of the noodle because I knew that no one would see the back.  But, I worked for about 2 hours to fill the wreath.
Now for you decoration of choice.  I went with a wooden S since our last name is Smith.  I first covered the noodle with a sparkly silver ribbon so that we wouldn’t see the green styrofoam underneath.  I painted the S white so it would stand out against the silver ribbon and between all of the flowers. After a little bit of hot glue, the wreath was complete!  And here is the finished project!
