Also pool "noodles" work well if you can get them at a dollar store they are cost effective. A great tip for making wreath: go to the plumbing department at Home Depot or Lowes and grab a six foot long piece of foam tubing for $.97!! Snip the length you want with scissors and duct tape the ends together. Voila! You have a really inexpensive wreath form. You can probably get three to four wreaths out of one piece.
