A new craft every day

Pool Noodle Light Sabers

You can repurpose those pool noodles you have laying around the yard into fun Pool Noodle Light Sabers for every day fun or you can buy inexpensive new ones for that Superhero party.

Trivia: The pool noodle is North America’s top selling water toy. The Brampton, Ontario factory produces and sells an estimated 70% of all pool noodles in North America.

Supplies

Pool Noodles (each full size pool noodles makes two light sabers). I bought my noodles at Target for $2 a piece. I choose the 2″ diameter noodles (as opposed to the 3″ for twice the price). I just grabbed a couple of every color they had.

Sparkly Duct Tape

Plain silver duct tape

Black Electrical tape

Instructions

Cut the noodle in half.

Stick the ends of the X down to the sides of the noodle

Using the sparkly glitter duct tape, cover the end with 5-6 pieces of tape.

Use the black duct tape, create designs over the duct tape. You can get as fancy or as plain as you want here. In the interest of saving time, I choose the more simple look!
