Do you love easy and inexpensive DIYs? I’m sharing how to make a pool noodle candle and it’s adjustable for any occasion or season.
Pool Noodle Candle Materials Needed

- pool noodles
- spray paint
- hot glue and glue gun
- floral accent
- razor blade
- battery operated tealight candles
Pool Noodle Candle Instructions
1. Mark the pool noodle
I decided on this basket for my pool noodle base. I measured the pool noodle inside so I would know how many pool noodles would fit inside the basket and marked the pool noodle so I would have different heights for my candles.
2. Cut the pool noodle
I cut the pool noodle with a serrated knife.
3. Glue the pool Noodles together
I used a rubber band to hold the pool noodles together. I hot glued the pool noodles to each other. It’s important to use a cool glue gun as high-temperature glue guns can melt the styrofoam.
4. Trace a Circle on the noodle end
I traced a circle with a pen around a battery-operated tealight on top of each noodle end.
5. cut the circle out with a razor blade
I used a razor blade to cut out a circle on the noodle. I then made a slant to cut out a section deep enough for the tealight to fit down into the noodle.
6. Make faux candle drips with hot glue
I used my cool glue gun to make the top of each noodle look like a candle by adding drips, and a rough top.
7. Paint the pool noodles
I used Rustoleum white paint and primer spray paint to coat the noodles. I let that dry completely, and then I added some glitter blast spray paint on top of that and let that dry completely.
8. assemble the pool noodle candles
I placed the noodles into my basket, added some ribbon around them, and added a little floral arrangement to the front.
9. Add the battery operated tealights
I placed the battery-operated tealights into the tops of each of the cut noodles.
Your faux pool noodle candles are ready for display.
