Pool Noodle Candy Canes

Winter weather is here and your pool noodles probably haven’t been getting much use lately. Why not transform them into outdoor holiday decorations? With just a few materials these swimming accessories can be turned into weatherproof pool noodle candy canes! This is a great DIY project to do with the kids over the holiday break.

What You Need:

Fishing Line

Pool Noodles

Tulle or Weatherproof Ribbon

Straight Pins

Step 1: Bend the tip of the pool noodle over to create the hook or the “J” of a candy cane. Secure the hook in place with the fishing line.

Step 2: Using a straight pin, secure the tulle or weatherproof ribbon inside the bottom hole of the pool noodle and be careful that the pin doesn’t poke through to the other side.

Step 3: Wrap the pool noodle with the tulle or weatherproof ribbon and secure it the same way once you reach the other end of the noodle.

Step 4: Use fishing line to anchor your candy cane to the screen, patio area or anywhere outside your home. If you live in a warmer climate and your pool isn’t covered with a winter pool cover, float the pool noodle candy canes in the water!
