Halloween Centerpiece “Jersey Girl Knows Best”

6 Materials

Do you have a few pool noodles laying around?! Me too! I turned these unused items into a spooky Halloween Centerpiece! Ready?! Let’s do this!

I had a few of these pool noodles left over from summer and we barely used them so I decided to make a spooky Halloween decoration instead!

I cut them in various sizes. I used a little more than two pool noodles to create this large centerpiece. You could use more or less depending upon the look you are going for.

I used rubber bands to help me with the look before I hot glued them together.

I used two lines of hot glue to get a more secure hold. I also used the rubber bands to hold the pool noodles together while the hot glue dried.

Here I made drips of glue to look like dripping wax.

I used a tea light as a template and a sharpie ti draw it.

I used a sharp pointy knife to cut down about 1/2 an inch down along the template.

I also cut along in the inside, but be careful.

I remove the cut foam and glued the piece down into the hole for less waste. The tea light fits perfectly! I am not lighting these tea lights, but if you want more lighting I suggest finding black LED tea lights that are battery operated.

Here is the sprayed pool noodles. I sprayed them twice. They are looking pretty spooky! 💀

The faux candles look great by themselves, but I added in some dark red roses with black leaves, black skulls and some other spooky greenery. I hope your candles came out awesome and you have a wonderful Halloween! 🥀 💀
