What can I do with pool noodles? I have 3 holiday pool noodle hacks for you! Pool noodles were on clearance for .25 at Walmart. I grabbed a bunch of them and created some holiday decor for my yard/home.
How do you make a candy cane out of pool noodles?
I wrapped white athletic tape that I got from Dollar Tree around 2 red pool noodles.
I curved the pool noodle into a candy cane shape and used fishing line to hold it in place.
I put some yard stakes into the ground and placed the candy canes onto them.

How do you make a hiding elf from a pool noodle?
I cut a red pool noodle in half.
I stuffed some plastic bags into knee high socks where the feet go. You could use any kind of stuffing for this part. I then pulled the socks up the pool noodles.
I placed an elf hat on top of the noodles.

How do you make letters out of pool noodles?
I took one green pool noodle and bent it (like the candy canes) and tied it into place with fishing line. This would be my “J”.
I taped 2 noodles together using gaffers tape to create the “o”. You could use this idea alone to create a simple and inexpensive wreath.
I cut a 3rd pool noodle and hot glued it back on to create the letter “y”.
Here is what the forms looked like before I continued
I then bought garland from Walmart. I hot glued an end onto the noodle and then wound the garland around each letter. I cut off the end and hot glued it to the noodle.
I added a solar light strand that I already had on hand to my display.
I used the extra lights to hold the letters into place on my railing.
If you like this display you might like my selection of wreaths
Alternatively you could use all of these decorations indoors.
