For a two-toned look, hold 2 different colored ropes of garland side by side while wrapping.

Christmas Wreath Process

Once you reach the end, glue the bottom of the garland to the noodle and start the process with the next rope. Continue until the noodle is completely covered.

On one end of the wreath, find a spot to push the garland aside and expose the pool noodle. Apply glue to the back of the ribbon and attach it to the exposed noodle.

Christmas Wreath

Fluff the garland back to cover any remaining noodle that may be showing.

Christmas Wreath Ribbon

String a couple of the ornaments or bulbs together to create a layered look. Cut a 24” piece of ribbon and string it through one of the ornaments, centering them above the bow. Wrap the ribbon around the pool noodle and tie to secure. Tie a second knot in the ribbon creating a loop for it to be hung by.

Trim off excess ribbon.

Repeat for all ornaments you want to add to your wreath.

Hang up and admire!
