Let’s take a look at a great idea, a super simple way to make an easy pool noodle grapevine frame wreath. What do you think? I see pool noodle creations often on social media used in many different ways.
So I am making mine a bit different and making my own wreath idea.
One of the best things about this project is it works for spring, summer, and early fall.
So now, let me share how my noodle wreath project is different. Above all my goal is to share easy, budget-friendly crafts with my readers, and this DIY wreath is easy and beyond doable. I also try to be true to my home decor style when sharing simple craft ideas and one of my favorite things is making new seasonal wreaths.
For the most part, I had everything needed to complete this DIY. I needed a pool noodle. By the way, finding a pool noodle in NJ at this time of year wasn’t easy. Finally, I did get lucky and did find one at Ace Hardware. Mostly, these are easy to find at the Dollar store but not in NJ during winter.
Also, now I begin thinking of how to make my wreath different. Then it came to me, add the pool noddle in the middle of a large grapevine wreath.

Can This Wreath Hang on the Outside of a Door?
Hanging This on Your Door
Since this has moss I suggest hanging this on your front door only if you have a storm door to protect it from moisture.
Easy Pool Noodle Grapevine Frame
Step 1: Making the Foam Wreath Form Oval for the Grapevine Project
Next is how to keep the noodle in round shape or in this case oval. I have seen many use duct tape so first I gave this a try. However, my wreath made a loud noise in my craft room and popped apart. So I knew I had to come up with a better solution.
The goal for doing this step is to make the pool noodle wreath the size to fit inside the middle of your grapevine wreath.
Adding the Wood Dowel to Keep This Craft Together
Step 2: Adding glue to the Dowel and Adding Inside the Noodle Form
Since this is getting placed in the center of the grapevine I want to be very secure. The solution is to add a wood dowel inside the hole of the pool noodle.
First thing, add hot glue to the inside of the hole of the pool noodle. It’s particularly important to use a low-temperature hot glue gun.
Why? Because high-temperature glue will break down the Styrofoam base.
After adding glue inside the hole carefully add glue to the sides of the wood dowel. This is a great way to keep the round shape together.
Now add a bit of extra glue in the little gap and squeeze until set. A few seconds is enough.
Because bending this into the wreath shape will add pressure adding hot glue makes this more stable.
Here is where I add duct tape to add extra stability.
Putting This Wreath Frame Together
Step 3: Put This Wreath Together Inside the Frame and Add Texture
Let’s begin putting this project together with the oval pool noodle. Now add the oval piece to the center of the grapevine.
Because this is going to be a tight-fit wedge inside the middle of the wreath frame push a bit at a time.
Cutting the Moss in for the Wreath
Cut the Moss for the Wreath
Now cut the moss into different sizes to cover the wreath.
When cutting the moss, I find the easiest way is to cut the pieces to cover the inside of the pool noodle first.
By the way, I found the easiest way to add the moss is by cutting square or rectangular sections work best. Also, add a bit of hot glue to keep the moss secure. Again, be sure your glue gun is set on low temp.
As I moved around the wreath, I add smaller pieces to cover the corners as needed.
Honestly, the moss takes the most time for this beautiful wreath.
Adding a Nest to Add Some Charm
Step 4: Add Charm with a Touch of Nature
I especially love birds’ nests and, you may enjoy this post to make one in minutes. How’s that for a quick easy craft project? Also, because I enjoy adding natural elements to our home decor, I think the nest adds a touch of nature and whimsy to this grapevine frame wreath. You may enjoy seeing how I add summer touches to our home and this fall tour is filled with natural decor ideas as examples.
Here I’m using two floral pins to attach the nest to the moss wreath.
Lastly, add a ribbon of your choice and hang this rustic grapevine-framed wreath.
Incidentally, I especially enjoy making wreaths and you can see quite a few in my DIY & CRAFTS section at the top of my homepage. See a spring wreath, easy DIY fall wreaths, wreaths for the Christmas season, and wreaths in a variety of sizes too!
I wanted to share a wreath idea with a pool noddle in a different way than I have seen out there. So, I hope you enjoyed seeing this pool noodle grapevine frame wreath.
