Hello! It’s Friday, the end of the week for some people. Unfortunately for me, it’s my Sunday because I have to work on Saturday and Sunday. Oh well.

So Mother’s Day is a little over a week away and for some people, they are hosting Mother’s Day events. So, how should one decorate for such events?
Well, you could always start with the door! I am going to show you how to make a beautiful wreath for about $20! And it only takes about 2 hours to make.
Things you need are a pool noodle, lots of fake flowers, tape, scissors, and some sort of statement decoration. All of these items can be purchased from the Dollar Store, so it makes the wreath even cheaper!
The first thing you need to do it make the pool noodle into a wreath. Just make it a circle and use tape to keep it in place. I had to use packing tape to make sure that it would stay in place.
Then I started placing flowers. I wasn’t sure how it was going to work exactly, but I thought that the easiest way would be to cut the wire to stick in the noodle. So, after a little bit of work trying to figure out the easiest way to cut the flowers, it was able to get started on my wreath.
I went with white, pink, yellow, and orange for my flower choices and filled in the noodle as I went. I didn’t fill in the back of the noodle because I knew that no one would see the back. But, I worked for about 2 hours to fill the wreath.
Now for you decoration of choice. I went with a wooden S since our last name is Smith. I first covered the noodle with a sparkly silver ribbon so that we wouldn’t see the green styrofoam underneath. I painted the S white so it would stand out against the silver ribbon and between all of the flowers.
After a little bit of hot glue, the wreath was complete! And here is the finished project!
First of all, I love how the colors look against mom’s turquoise door. It makes the pinks and yellows really stand out. And I love how it looks! The colors are so bright and pretty and they look great with the S on the wreath as well. This wreath is even better because it only cost me $20 to make! $20 and 2 hours of work to have the beautiful wreath, I think it’s worth it!
