Pool Noodle Luminaries

I’m obsessed, I tell you.  OBSESSED!  Who knew there were so many things you can do with a pool noodle?  These little pieces of floating foam heaven can be used for anything!  We were having our night swim in the backyard and I thought it would be fun to throw in a couple of these Pool Noodle Luminaries.  They are so easy to put together!  And don’t worry, we’ll talk about protecting that battery!

  1. Oh my goodness! These are so cute!! Pinned!

  2. Sandra H says:

    Does the saran wrap keep that water from ruining the lights?

  3. Lisa Thomas says:

    Hi – these look so easy and cute! My question is do you have to turn them on before assembling them? It looks like you would have to unwrap everything so you can turn them on. Just checking – thanks a bunch!

    • Jill @ Create.Craft.Love. says:

      The ones I bought had the little switch on the bottom. Totally able to turn on and off through the cellophane. Hope that helps!

  4. Oh my! I LOVE this idea! Pinned!

  5. How long are the sections of noodles?

  6. I love these! I was just wondering where you found those cute little tea lights with the flame shape?

    • Jill @ Create.Craft.Love. says:

      Kala – I picked those up at Walgreens. They $4.97 for a pack of six. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Do they stay floating light side up? Or do they tend to lean over in natural direction they were made for (on side)

    • Jill @ Create.Craft.Love. says:

      They stay right side up! The dark picture of them glowing is in the water if you look closely. Thanks for stopping by!

  13. T. Webster says:

    Love this idea. I had a few questions, however, looks like they’ve all been covered in the comments above.

  14. Betty Kleiss says:

    I bought the noodles at the $ tree…..and the lights…I can not get the lights in the noodle. Are the noodles at Walmart different? They must have larger holes.

  15. Hi — I would love to do this for our pool for a friendsgiving/bday party and would love to know what internal diameter of pool noodles should I try to find to make sure the LED candle lights fit. Thank you!
