DIY Candy Cane Pillars
19 of 20


  • Pool noodles (11)
  • Concrete form tube at 8” in diameter
  • Contact cement
  • White semi-gloss interior house paint
  • Red semi-gloss interior house paint
  • Gold acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • Utility knife
  • Tape (can use blue painters tape, duct tape or gaff tape – small amount)
  • Sharpie
  • 1x3 wood (4’) You can use 2x2 as well – this is just for the interior of the tube so even scrap wood would work. I will not be seen.
  • Screws


  1. Cut your pool noodles in half using a utility knife. You will need about 20 halves to make each pillar, so 10 noodles will give you that. The extra pool noodle will serve as the top and bottom of the pillar.
  2. Brush on white paint to 10 noodles. Set aside to dry.
  3. Brush on red paint to 10 noodles. Set aside to dry.
  4. Brush on gold paint to 2 noodles. Set aside to dry.
  5. We bought 4’ lengths of the cement forms, so in order to make these pillars taller than 4’, we must put two forms together. Cut one of them to get the desired height you would like. Ours will be 6’.
  6. Inside the tube, create the brace with your scrap wood and screws.
  7. Take one pool noodle half and tape it to the cement form in a spiral form. This will give you a template to start gluing on the noodles.
  8. Take a sharpie and draw the outline of this noodle.
  9. Remove the tape and noodle.
  10. Brush on contact cement to the pillar and your pool noodle.
  11. Place the noodle on the form in the spiral that you created.
  12. Alternate red and white until the entire tube is covered. You may need to add bits and pieces here and there where the pool noodles don’t match up completely.
  13. Take your gold piece and add them to the top and bottom of the pillars, over the other pool noodles.
  14. Enjoy your Christmas pillars!


  1. Keep extra paint handy for when the pillars are complete for touch ups. Also, keep some paint aside in a small deli cup if you plan to store these year after year. That way you can touch them up out of storage to enjoy them for years to come.
  2. Some of your noodles will not match up completely. That’s ok. You can turn those parts to the back and add slices of pool noodles where needed.
  3. You can make these any height that you would like. Just add or subtract cement forms to fit your needs.
