I don't know anyone who hasn't made lightsaber noises while playing with noodles in the pool, and now with some duct tape and about five minutes, you can make your pool noodles look just like a lightsaber!

What you'll need

  • Pool Noodle
  • Silver Duct Tape
  • Black Electrical Tape

How to make it

  1. Step 1 Lightsaber Pool Noodle

    Cut your pool noodles in half. Scissors won't really work, but a sharp knife, or even a small saw will get the job done.

  2. Step 2 Lightsaber Pool Noodle

    Wrap the bottom of your pool noodle in silver duct tape. You're trying to cover the bottom fourth or so of the noodle.

  3. Step 3 Lightsaber Pool Noodle

    Wrap three rings of black electrical tape around the top of the silver tape. 

  4. Step 4 Lightsaber Pool Noodle

    Take two pieces of black tape and stick them to the bottom of the tape like this. 


    Now you have a super cool pool noodle lightsaber! May the force be with you!
