The Call of the Pool Noodle Wreath

When you hear the call, and it's shouted loudly enough,
you must answer that call.

When my bloggy girls said there would be a noodle wreath party,
I just knew, without a doubt,
it was time to get my noodle on!

Because after all, who am I not to follow the pack &
wave my noodle around in pride?
(Oh dear, this is sounding a bit off-color.)

I have to admit, I did try a different noodle approach at first. 
I wanted to attempt to go where no noodle had gone before.
I thought, I actually have a pool, so why not leave my
noodle naked
and adorn it with assorted pool related accents?

Yeah that plan did not work at all!

I quickly found that a layer of clothing, if you will, was the way to go. 
That took me in a "predictable direction",
which was not really what I was going for, but nevertheless
acceptable in the end.

My fair noodle awaits, so let's go on with it!

My clothing of choice was an
itsy bitsy teenie weenie
yellow polka dot bikini fabric.

I made some felt hydrangeas.  Well, if
hydrangeas came in summer brights anyway!

I think I'm going to hang this wreath on my back door.
She is kinda cute, after all.

So tell me,
are you joining in on noodle madness?

  26. Kinda cute? I'd say adorable! It's definitely front door worthy too. :o)
    I remember the summer that pool noodles "hit the scene." My kids were maybe 7 and 10 (I'm clearly guessing but I'm close.) We went from store to store looking for them and everywhere we went they were sold out. We actually put our name on a waiting list at K-Mart. Finally got them 2 weeks later. (Oh...to put this in perspective my kids are now 26 and 29!)

  27. Gina, Your wreath turned out super cute! Love the colors and the polka-dots! Those flowers are my favorite. :-)

  28. I need to find a noodle and make this. My wreath is losing its flowers. hehehe I need something new for the front porch. Yours looks great.

  29. Gina, This turned out sooo cute! The flowers are wonderful.

  30. Super duper cute! Love the fun bright colors and love, love, love the hydrangeas, my favorite flower you know :-)
