Stay Cool This Summer With These DIY Pool Noodle Float Ideas

0 3

Morph some pool noodles into a floating seat with the help of mesh fabric and some crafting supplies. YouTuber Amanda from Crafters Autonomous shares a recipe for a sewing-free floating chair. Two pool noodles act as a backrest with a laundry bag as a seat, all held together with snaps. For this DIY, source two pool noodles, one mesh laundry bag similar to this one from Amazon, and a snap kit like this one from Michael’s. You’ll also need scissors and some chalk to mark where you’ll be cutting the fabric.

Cut the bag along the bottom and one of the sides. The bag should now open into one large piece of fabric. Remove the drawstring, and use it to tie your two noodles together into a curved U-shape for the backrest. This shape will be your guide to cutting pieces of the mesh for a seat. Lay the fabric so that the edge that held the drawstring is facing you. Place the curved noodles on the fabric with their ends facing you and lined up with the fabric’s edge. Leave a margin of 12 inches of fabric at the top to wrap around the noodles with a bit to spare just in case. Mark and cut the fabric at this top end following the noodles’ curve.  Fold the fabric edges over the pool noodles, and affix a snap to hold the two layers of mesh together on what will be the edge of the seat. Toss it into the water and enjoy!
