Pouf ottomans are super cool, both to sit on and just have around the house to create that nonchalant lounging vibe (we may have just invented a term, go with it). And yes, you can simply buy a pouf, but that would take half the fun out of it.
We think making a pouf is just so much better, and it also means you’re free to go wild with the cover. So, how do pool noodles fit into that? Perfectly: just take a bunch of pool noodles, glue them together standing up, then cover them with the fabric of your choice.
If you like to go camping, you are probably the proud owner of a canopy. There's a lot to be said for canopies but they're not the most rain-proof thing out there. If your canopy needs rain or wind protection to remain tight, stable, and refrain from being ruined, pool noodles can do the trick for you.
Just stick it under the corners of the canopy in a semicircle, and your canopy will be sure to weather any storm.
The Perfect Headboard
We're honestly not sure how we didn't come up with this one sooner, but this hack totally changed our lives! Are you not sick of hurting your head when you accidentally bump it into the stiff headboard, time and time again? Well, it turns out you can just make your own DIY headboard from pool noodles, some rafters, and a large piece of fabric.
Other than the coolness of making your own headboard, and how pretty the result is – it also means that you pretty much can't get hurt by it! How genuinely comforting.
No one wants to have cockroaches, or, God forbid, mice entering their home from underneath the door! Frankly, just talking about it send chills through our body. But hey, there's no need to be afraid of tiny invaders any longer.
Just cut a pool noodle and attach it to the bottom of your door, blocking the small space between the bottom of the door and the floor. There'll be zero invading from now on, we can assure you.
DIY Solar Sun Rings
The creativity that pool noodles inspire in people blows our minds time and time again! We've recently discovered that you can actually make your own pool heating rings from scratch, using hula hoops, pool noodles, and black trash bags.
We don't personally know whoever came up with this hack, but we think they should be recognized for their genius, coming up with such a creative homemade solution while managing to keep the "pool" in "pool noodles."
