DIY A Stunning Flower Arch With This Genius Pool Noodle Hack

While notable events are always enjoyable, the décor can come at a cost, especially when it comes to floral arrangements. In fact, some people can spend up to a whopping $1,000 for professional décor, which is quite a considerable amount. However, it doesn't always have to be so pricey. Rather than splashing the cash on high-end floral decorations, you could instead create your own flower arch on a budget using just flowers and a pool noodle. As a result, you will end up with some eye-catching floral décor that can stun at any event. For example, this hack is appropriate for birthdays, weddings, and a handful of other special occasions. However, you could even use it to decorate your home with flowers or for Halloween if you wish, and incorporate some Halloween-themed flowers to go with it.

Of course, the main benefit of this pool noodle hack is the overall cost of it. This makes it perfect if you're organizing a special event on a budget and don't have much to spend, so it's easy on your purse strings. Thankfully, it's not too difficult to replicate either. Below, we'll break down the process so you can replicate this stunning pool noodle flower arch for yourself.

Decide what flowers you want

To re-create this stunning design, as shown by @shiv.k04, you'll need a pool noodle (or several if you want to create many), some scissors or an appropriate knife, and some faux flowers. However you could also use real flowers, but just be aware that they will not last as long, and you will have to replace them eventually. Once you have everything you need, you can begin the process. First, you'll need to grab your pool noodle and lay it flat on the floor before cutting a slit down one side, making sure you don't cut all the way through. Next, simply grab your flowers and pierce the pool noodles with them, placing them however you see fit until you cover up most of the noodle. This could be at random or in a pattern, depending on what look you want. Now, all that's left to do is hang your stunning flower arch wherever you want, and the final look should be complete — result!

When it comes to this DIY hack, the pool noodle acts as a base to hold the flowers in place while creating a flexible arch at the same time. This allows you to place it wherever you want, unlike other floral décor that may be more rigid. Likewise, if you upcycle your pool noodle, you'll save even more money, as you won't have to buy one. Now, all that's left is to enjoy your hard work.
