Xmas Table Centrepiece Pool Noodle

4 Materials
45 Minutes
I have a bunch of pool noodles I was go Going to throw out as no one uses them and they take up room in my shed so this thought came from. A shed clean out !
Loads of Xmas balls with a few differwnt colours but loads of sizes and shapes and a pool noodle and A glue and off we go !
so everything ready gun glue all hot ready to go crazy
I started alomg the edge that would sit on the table and glued the balls in random shapes about 1/4 of the way down the noodle , then made the next layer and so on till I have 1/4 of the noodle covered to the other side this pic is take from what it looks like underneath once it is done so you dont cover that area
Then again back to were u were up to and keep going till you have reach the length you want which is what I did then I cut the remaining tube were I wanted it to end
Once I had all my balls on I saw there were a few gaps so I used the smallest balls and I had some nice stars which’s fitted well and glued them on over lapping what I have already done but covering any sign of the old noodle :D
and here is the final product I’m so happy with it it’s very pretty as you can see I only used blush/pink balls but using a main colour of silver but you can do any thing you like be creative pull out all those old balls and have a go :) merry Xmas for Australia :)
Update I just found some little battery operated fairy lights to add see the next pic :) now even more prettier :)
All done :)

    Did you just put a couple ornaments on each end of the noodle so it's not seen? Or is it covered in cloth or painted? I am unable to see from the photos above.

    This would make a great circular wreath or center piece (and that would help Darla’s question). Do you think you could spray paint the noodle in a metallic color before starting to glue on the ornaments?

    It's easier ladies if you cut the noodle in half then you have a bottom base and glue from there. and you get two centerpieces instead of one. Yours is beautiful by the way cant wait to do this for christmas. doing on with sunflowers this weekend
