I have seen so many pool noodle ideas, they are gonna raise the price of them things. SO CLEVER: Take a swim noodle from the dollar store and duct tape it together! A wreath, ready to cover how you choose.
Inspiration: pillow made of recycled blankets cut into strips and woven together. Nice detail: one cross stitch on every square. The other side of the pillow is made of two blanket halves held together by two buttons. From Lappalou.
foam boards from Home Depot covered in damask fabric = gorgeous DIY upholstered wall hangings. RP: Use foam boards or MDF boards (covered w/ felt or painted) to use as back drops for photographing wall hangings.
