Make a patriotic wreath in less than 30 minutes with supplies from the dollar store! Just use a pool noodle, Duck Tape, and patriotic decorations for a one of a kind wreath.
After making my first pool noodle wreath last month, I’ve been brainstorming other ideas to make more wreaths out of pool noodles. Who knew a pool noodle would become one of my favorite crafting supplies! With Memorial Day just around the corner and summer on it’s way, I wanted to make a patriotic wreath for the front door. I don’t have a nice red, white, and blue decoration to celebrate Memorial Day or Independence Day and this wreath only took me about 20 minutes and $3 to make.
I started with a pool noodle from the dollar store. I wrapped it in white Duck Tape I had leftover from making the first wreath. You can see more detailed instructions on how to wrap the Duck Tap around the pool noodle on my first pool noodle wreath post. But basically, you just bend the pool noodle in to a circle and wrap the tap all around. It takes about 5 minutes. Next I wrapped red, white, and blue star garland I got at the dollar store. It was a 25 foot package and I used about 23 feet. It’s bendable so I just bent in to place but you could anchor it with some tape, too.
Then I just added this very patriotic bow, which is another dollar store find. The bow had a twisty tie on the back so I tied that to some of the garland and used some tape doubled over to secure the ears better to the wreath. And seriously, that’s it! I was done. The hardest part was not getting 25 feet of garland tangled up while winding it around the wreath. I used the leftover garland to make a loop to hang the wreath with and put it on my front my door.

You could also use patriotic fabric to make a fabric strip wreath like the one below, too!
