pool noodles.

I repurposed Awreatha from winter craft events and created a few spring-ready flower arches. Pool noodles for the win!

Similar to Awreatha, I wrapped each pool noodle in strips of felt. For one I repurposed the wired leaves from Awreatha and inserted those into the pool noodle before wrapping with green felt (to both hide and secure the wire).

For the first arch, I wanted to create a rainbow. I grabbed all my felt scraps and went to town with making flowers. Anything goes for this arch! I also used a few felt balls for floral centers. For the second I went with a spring jungle look and chose dark orange, pinks, yellows, and a neon yellow/green (tennis ball color!). For this one I wanted a more cohesive look so I created multiple of each flower type.

Then glue, glue, glue! For the rainbow I started glueing from the middle of the arch to make sure I was adding flowers evenly across the arch. For the spring jungle arch I sprinkled flowers all over, adding one flower type at a time. I left the ends blank so you have something to hold.

Eee! Super excited for how these turned out, and I can’t wait to use these for a photobooth or for some spring frolicking. Happy Spring!
