It's football season!! Hubby is a DIE-HARD Ohio State fan! So here is a great DIY for the season!
This football wreath is a super easy project and it would look great on your front door or hanging in an entertainment room! This was a very cheap and easy wreath to make!
I got almost all of the supplies at Wal-Mart! The good thing about this wreath is that you can customize to fit any of your favorite teams! It is a bit time consuming, but not in the least bit hard! So, what are we waiting for?! Let’s get started!!
Money spent: $6
Time spent: about an hour
- Pool noodle ($.88 at Wal-Mart)
- Duct tape
- Hot glue gun
- ribbon ($1.97 at Wal-Mart)
- tulle ($2.57 at Wal-Mart)
- football ornaments ($.50 each, bought 3 packs of two at Michael’s Craft Store)
-First, you need to turn your pool noodle into a circular wreath. Sometimes this can be difficult so you might want to grab a friend or family member to help you, one of you can hold the wreath in a circle while the other wraps duct tape around the wreath to hold it in position.
-Next, I painted my wreath white because I didn’t want bright blue shining through!
-While your paint is drying you can cut your tulle into 18 in. strips! The spool of tulle I bought is 25 yards and it was not enough to go all the way around, that’s why I covered the rest with ribbon! If you want the tulle all the way around, you need two spools.
-Once your paint is dry, you just have to take your strips of tulle and tie them double knotted around the wreath. Just continue to do that!
-Finally, you just need to hot glue the football ornaments to the wreath!
(optional) I cut the Ohio State “O” out of cardboard and painted it red and glued that as well!
There you have it! You have now made your awesome football wreath! Hang it wherever you’d like and have fun making it!
