This summer I threw an Olympic party for one of my nieces birthdays.  At that party we played a bunch of games.  One of them was a hurdle race using pool noodles. That was the day my obsession with pool noodles began. Pool noodles are a crafters dream. They are as cheap as a dollar, and can be used in a million different ways! I had so many left over that I knew I had to use them to make something for Halloween! Can you believe the base of this Creepy-Crawly Halloween Wreath is a pool noodle?

How To Make A Halloween Wreath With A Pool Noodle

This creepy-crawly Halloween wreath is super easy to make. The materials only cost $10! Great project to add a touch of Halloween to your front door decor.

The method for creating a wreath with a pool noodle is as simple as 1,2,3.

Begin by twisting your pool noodle in to a circle. Add a little hot clue to the edges, and then secure with the duct tape. Apply the duct tape generously, you want to make sure it is really tight and sturdy. Do not worry about how it looks, because you will be covering it with moss.

Gluing Tip: Make sure the glue from your hot glue gun is not too hot or else it will eat the foam. It is best to use it on a low temperature.

Work your way around the pool noodle adding hot glue and covering it generously with your Spanish moss.

This is such a fun and easy wreath!

Once your wreath is covered in moss you will begin adding your creepy-crawlies! There is no rhyme or reason, just scatter as you think looks appropriate! I especially love the glow-in-the-dark eyeball bouncy balls!


Let the glue dry and then hang your creepy-crawly Halloween wreath on your door!

It is a fun and easy way to get ready for Halloween!
