Patriotic Pool Noodle Garland
Blue or red pool noodle (feel free to mix or match!)
We found everything we needed at our local dollar store. Look for color themes such as red, white, and blue to keep with the spirit of the holiday.
1. Begin by having an adult cut the pool noodle into 1-2 inch segments. This portion of the activity should only be done by an adult since you will need a knife to do this step.
2. String the segments onto your length of ribbon. Add as many as you wish to achieve the desired length.
3. Cut the remaining ribbon into 3 inch strips. In between each segment, tie a piece of ribbon on to create a pattern and help space the pieces.
Your patriotic pool noodle garland is now ready to be displayed. It can be hung on an entry way, on your food table, or can even float along in your pool for some extra decoration. Either way, it is light weight so regular craft tape should be all you need to secure it to the spot of your choice.
Give this patriotic pool noodle garland a try for your next gathering. It is sure to make a fun statement.
