Swim Noodle Wall Flowers


Here is a quick and easy way to make summery flowers for your little girl's room, pool area, or really any room to which you want to add some color.

Use a sharp knife to slice your swim noodles. I recommend using at least 2 different colored swim noodles.

 Arrange 5 slices in a flower shape and glue them together. Glue a different colored circle on top for the center of the flower. 



Decorate your flowers if desired. Hand them on the wall using mounting strips. There you have a quick and inexpensive wall decoration.


Happy crafting!
