It’s college football season!!!  It’s time to show your team spirit!  Despite this week’s loss I’m still ever grateful, ever true to my Boilermakers!!  So, I made a new wreath to show my Purdue love!

DIY Team Spirit Wreath #purdue #wreath I started off with some little wood letters I picked up from the craft store along with some spray adhesive and glitter.  I sprayed, sprinkled and let dry.

While I waited I got to work on the wreath.  I started with a pool noodle from the dollar store and taped the ends togeDIY Team Spirit Wreath #purdue #wreath ther.

Then I got to work wrapping my wreath form with ribbon.  Using hot glue I attached the end of the ribbonDIY Team Spirit Wreath #purdue #wreath at a slight angle

and slowly worked my way around overlapping slightly.

Once I got back to the beginning I secured the end with hot glue.

To add a little more interest I took some chunky white yarn I had leftover from making my Welcome to the Hive wreath.

Once my letters were dry I shook off the excess glitter and attached them to the yarn.

I wound them, securing with glue every round or two.  Some were wound tight, some a little looser.

This wreath took less than an hour (excluding glitter letter drying time) and cost less than $10.  You could easily switch out the letters and colors to suit your favorite team!

  1. Looks great! I have TONS of wreath ideas in my head as well as an entire Pinterest board. I even have pool noodles for this very type of project.

    I haven’t quite figured out where to hang a wreath here though. The screen door makes hanging on the wood door impossible. Not enough room for a wreath hook over the screen door. Plus we don’t have a porch to help with the elements. So I’m still pondering.

    I’m not a huge sports fan so I don’t really root for anybody. Mike just bought me a Browns fitted shirt. So I guess I’ll root for them if it’s laundry day and I’m out of other clothes to wear???
