Candy Cane Pool Noodle Lollipops

When I found this awesome DIY pool noodle yard lollipop video tutorial by Auntie Coo Coo, on YouTube, I knew I had found my outdoor Christmas decor for the year. These giant lollipops are going to look so good with the Candyland decor theme I have planned for this Christmas.

So you are done! If you want to take it a step further and make it look like a real bonified lollipop, just cover your lollipop with cellophane and tie up with some string. These were so cute in my Candy Land themed Yard, but I didn’t win, my neighbor who had made an Army Of Arc Angels won, and she deserved to win. I got second place and that’s good enough for me. All the neighbors loved it.

Then you just get your hot glue gun and start gluing and rolling your stripey pool noodle into a round lollipop shape. You reall may have to put some elbow grease in this project at this stage lol.

Then I cut a hole the size of my PVC pipe and then put some glue inside the hole and at the end of my pre-cut PVC pipe, the put the PVC pipe in at the base of the lollipop. The PVC pipe will stick in the ground very easily and are really secure.

There are literally millions of used for pool noodles, I buy at least 25 from Dollar Tree at the beginning of the Summer. So I was delighted when I found this Youtube video tutorial on turning all those pool noodles into DIY Craft Giant Lollipops for my outdoor Christmas Decor. This project idea set me off into an entire Outdoor Candy Land Theme for my yard this Christmas Season. Did I mention the neighborhood Christmas Decor Contest this year? Oh, yes my friends, I was going to win. I started by hot-gluing two pool noodles together and striping them (wrapping brightly colored duct tape around the pool noodle to resemble a candy stripe).

TikToker @louisianawoman1 shared a video of the DIY she first saw someone try on YouTube. To make one giant lollipop, you’ll need two pool noodles of the same color, colored tape, a stake, hot glue gun, plastic wrap, and ribbon. First, you’ll need to glue the two pool noodles together so that they make a long one. Then you need to wrap your colored tape around the whole thing to make a candy cane–like design. When your hot glue gun is all heated up, use it to roll the long pool noodle into a circle. Using a knife, carve a hole in the bottom of the lollipop shape for the stake. Use more hot glue to attach the stake. Finally, wrap the lollipop in plastic, and tie it with a festive bow to complete the look.This content is imported from Tiktok.

This DIY is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want a project that’ll take too long or be too messy. It’s especially nifty if you already have a few pool noodles laying around that you don’t plan on using next summer. If you’re looking for other holiday DIYs, you can also find a tutorial for making giant ornaments on the TikToker’s page.

Now that Halloween is over, it’s basically already Christmas–as Mariah Carey herself has declared it. That means it’s about time to start making festive DIY decor. One TikToker shared a project that involves making decorative Christmas-themed lollipops out of pool noodles, and you’ll want to recreate it for your holiday display this season.
