I am 100% certain that anything red, white and blue is just so stinking cute. But I must admit that I am super smitten with this months My Dollar DIY project. For those of you just tuning in, this is a monthly challenge where a group of bloggers create projects using supplies from our local dollar store. The theme for this month’s project was “Red, White & Blue” and I just love what my quick trip to the Dollar Tree produced. Not only did it only cost me $3, it took around 10 minutes to make and turned out super cute. That is the DIY trifecta y’all!
In case you missed it, last week I shared our End of School Year Popsicle Party. This has become a tradition that I hope we can continue for years to come and such a fun way to end the school year with the Sweets. When I hopped into the Dollar Tree to come up with this month’s project, the pool noodles screamed at me “hey make me into a popsicle” and I knew it would be a perfect addition to our popsicle party!
This banner was super simple to assemble and only took a few supplies.
POOL NOODLE POPSICLE BANNER SUPPLIES NEEDED:
- Red Pool Noodle (from Dollar Tree)
- Blue Pool Noodle (from Dollar Tree)
- Popsicle Sticks (from Dollar Tree)
- White Duct Tape (already had at house)
- Twine (already had at house)
To start, cut the pool noodle using your regular scissors. I was able to make both garlands using only one red noodle and blue noodle.
Once you have your noodle cut, just stab the bottom of the noodle piece with your scissors to create a slit and then insert the popsicle stick.
Once you have your “popsicles”, you can use the white duct tape to tape them to the twine.
I happened to have some white duct tape and used the smaller leftover pieces to add the white tape to make it a BOMB POP to match our popsicles for the party.
I mean- look how cute this banner is with the Bomb Pop popsicles!
Now it’s time to see what everyone else came up with! Yay for the Red White and Blue!
