Last year I made some wooden firecrackers for July 4th, and this year I wanted to make something a bit different. I was at the Dollar Store and saw some pool noodles and came up with this idea.

Grab some pool noodles, ribbon, and other patriotic decor goodies!

I first cut up the noodles so that I could make them different heights, and combine the colors.

I used tape to keep the different colors together.

I used some patriotic ribbon to decorate them as well using hot glue to keep it together.

Next, I glued the three pool noodles together, making sure the ribbon seams were turned in.

The pool noodles themselves weren't too sturdy, so I then made a base from some wood and a spindle, and pushed the pool noodles over it.
