If you are a swimming enthusiast, then most likely you have used pool noodles or at least familiar with these colourful items. These bright, vibrant coloured flotation devices often elicit the idea of great summer days when these water toys help you soak up under the sun. But these lightweight and foamy kiddie toys can do more than just making your summers relaxing. Here are the four reasons to snatch these noodles from your pool and make amazing crafts and hacks.
Cheap yet creative wreath
As the yuletide season is fast approaching, you might be in a hurry to decorate your home. Pool noodles would be a wonderful addition to your gorgeous decoration ideas. You can form a wreath out of them and it’s pretty easy. You can simply cut a length of noodle and make a circle, just make sure that the size is not too small or big for your door. Then tape the ends together and wrap it with anything you want, depending on the decor idea you have. You can even add any pieces of decor materials on it, making it a rewarding craft and a great way to welcome your guests.
Simple yet cool party garland
If you love to host barbecue parties on your porch or patio, then pool noodles would be a very simple decorating idea. You just have to slice different colours of the noodles and then string them in the hues you want and in a length you prefer. This simple yet cool party garland would be a perfect alternative to tissue-paper tassel garland. Plus, the vibrant colours of the noodles would be really decorative and entertaining.
DIY floating cooler
Another fantastic use for pool noodles that’s perfect for your summer relaxation is a DIY floating cooler for root beer and other refreshing beverages. Just cut the noodles in length that fits your plastic shoe where you would put the beverages. Then run a strong string through the holes in the noodle and tie it tightly around the outside of the makeshift cooler. Just don’t forget to ensure that your DIY cooler can hold the weight of the ice and your drinks.
Make your trampoline safe
If you have kids who were used to have pinched by the huge springs around the trampoline, then pool noodles would be your best guard against injuries. It will take you only about ten minutes to childproof it. First, get the length of the springs and cut the noodles into that measurement. Then make a vertical slit on each of the noodles where you can insert it onto the spring around the trampoline. You can forget about worrying those pesky toes injuries.
