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 this wreath 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.
I had everything needed to complete this wreath DIY. But 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. These are easy to find at the Dollar Store but not in NJ during winter.
Also, I began 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.

Making an easy pool noodle wreath with a grapevine frame can be a fun and inexpensive DIY project that allows you to customize your home decor. Here are a few reasons why you might want to make one:

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. If the moss gets wet it may become a problem
Easy Pool Noodle Grapevine Frame
Step 1: Making The Foam Wreath Form Oval For The Grapevine Project
Next, how to keep the noodle in a 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 fit inside the middle of the grapevine wreath.
Adding The Wood Dowel To Keep This Craft Together
Step 2: Adding Glue To The Dowel And Adding It Inside The Noodle Form
Since this is getting placed in the center of the grapevine it needs to be very secure. The solution is to add a wood dowel inside the hole of the pool noodle.
First, add hot glue to the inside of the hole of the pool noodle wreath. It’s particularly important to use a low-temperature hot glue gun.
TIP: 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 extra glue to the little gap and squeeze until set. A few seconds is enough.
TIP: Bending this into the wreath shape will add pressure adding hot glue makes this more stable.
Here is where to add duct tape to the wreath 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 wreath project together with the oval pool noodle. Add the oval piece to the center of the grapevine.
Because this is going to be a tight-fit wedge this is inside the middle of the wreath frame pushing a bit at a time.
Cutting The Moss For The Wreath
Cut The Moss For The Wreath
Now cut the moss into different sizes to cover the wreath.
When cutting the moss, the easiest way is to cut the pieces to cover the inside of the pool noodle first.
Also, the easiest way to add the moss is by cutting square or rectangular sections that work best for the wreath. Also, add a bit of hot glue to keep the moss secure. Be sure the glue gun is set on low temp.
As you move around the wreath, add smaller pieces to cover the corners as needed.
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 this fall tour is filled with natural decor ideas and my wreaths are show stoppers.
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 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 on social media. So, I hope you enjoyed seeing this pool noodle grapevine frame wreath.
