scrapbook paper of your choice (the large size)
- Cut your pool noodle to the desire sizes with a serrated knife. I wanted three. Two are the same and one is slightly larger.
- Measure your scrap paper to fit around the firecrackers. Roll the paper until it wraps back around itself and draw a straight line leaving a little to slightly overlap.
- Spread Mod Podge on noodle and carefully roll paper onto noodle applying additional Mod Podge if needed to get a good adhesion. Tuck cut edge of paper under factory cute edge to have a nice clean seam. Allow to dry.
- Cut a circle out of the paper to fit the top of the noodle. Lay circle on top of noodle and poke hole through top with pencil before gluing down. Make sure to match seams up so none of the noodle shows though Allow to dry.
- Trim with decorative ribbon if desired.
- Spray with two coats of polyacrylic spray for a water resistant finish.
- Insert spray into top and through hole in noodle. Trim off any of the end that is below bottom of noodle.
- Run skewer through bottom of the noodle and into the foam to attach securely.
- Insert into pot or arrangement of choice. Or you can set them on a table without the skewers.

I noticed that when I tried to pin an image from this post to my Fourth of July board that it said that pinning is not allowed. How did you enable that?
At The Picket Fence says
Nicole it should let you that is so weird! I don’t think I changed any settings and I certainly don’t mind it being pinned. I’ll check it out when I’m not on my phone. 🙂

Linda @ it all started with paint says
Okay, we go to an annual 4th celebration that has been a tradition for like hundreds of years (okay, a bit of an exaggeration there … but you get the idea) and they do actually have a pool …
But now I’m wondering if I should make some pool noodle firecrackers to bring with me this year? Although the pyro men will be sorely disappointed. They’ve spent years and years trying to blow their own fingers off …
