Looking to add a little touch of a rustic country look to the house? This DIY wreath will do just that. The best part is it is made from upcycled items!
Farm/Country DIY Wreath
This is a pretty easy craft that any adult or teen could make. While you can use upcycled old pool noodle and tights to make this, you can also use new if you would like.
The color of the noodle you use does not matter as it will not show through the thick tights. I used an off white color tight, but you could use any color you like.
If you do want to use new, you could use these tights on Amazon. This was made using the normal size noodle that you find in the dollar stores. Not sure this would work if you use a jumbo noodle. It should but you may need larger tights to fully cover a jumbo noodle.

How To Make This Wreath:
The first thing you need to do is cut the legs of the tights off right as it joins the seating area.
Next, you need to cut the toe of the tights off.
Now slide the tight legs on to the pool noodle. You want to make sure that you have the heal area of the tights for both legs on the same side. This is because the bump will show, so I just used it as the back of my wreath so it is out of sight.
The next step is to cut about 2 inches of the pool noodle off using the scissors.
Next, we need to attach the two ends of the pool noodle together. Do this with a piece of tape.
Using the needle and thread, we need to stitch the tights together. You want to stitch it all the way around. Make sure to do both ends.
Adding Ribbon And Roses:
To cover the stitching on the tights you want to wrap the area with the burlap ribbon and sew it in place on the back. Make sure the back is on the same side of the heal bumps so it will not be seen. You don’t need to sew into the noodle, just to the tights.
Now cut the wires off of the flowers. If you are using flowers that don’t have wires just skip this step.
The next thing is to figure out where you want your flowers to be on the wreath. I placed mine over one of the burlap ribbons. Start stitching them together and to the tights.
You can use hot glue to add the ribbon and flowers to the wreath instead of stitching them. However, I do find it holds up better when stitched. But if the wreath will not be moving around, then gluing works fine.
That is it! You are done with your DIY wreath and can now display it how you would like.
