Summer Wreath Re-Deux

Last summer, I made this cute wreath using a foam pool noodle.

Turns out the pool noodle was not the best choice to use as a wreath form for this particular project.  The jute & sisal I used was way too heavy and after only a little bit of time caused it to sag, giving it an egg shape.
It was even more "eggy" than this picture.  Not good.

But, I really love this wreath and decided to try to save it.  Using an Exacto knife, I carefully sliced all the shells and felt flowers off the front and sliced all the jute & sisal off the noodle.   It was not fun, but I wanted to re-use all my supplies if I could.  And, bonus, I was able to catch up on some tv and movies while I did it.  Multi-tasking.

I bought this straw wreath form and got to hot glueing away.

Ahhh...much, much better.  No more eggy wreath.
