Easy to make and extra adorable, pool noodle faux candy is about to be your new favorite Halloween craft project. Just add mismatched striped knee high socks and a few accessories and your front door or Halloween tree is ready for trick-or-treaters.
Not only is this DIY Halloween project easy, it's also inexpensive.

Check out this episode of DIY This With Jennifer Perkins to see these pool noodle candies being made.
- pool noodles
- knee-high socks
- twist ties
- clear cellophane
- curling ribbon
Cut the toes off each knee-high sock, then cut the remaining tube in half. Note: The length of socks you have will determine the length you should cut the pool noodle. Adult socks versus children’s socks will have more length.
Using a knife, cut the pool noodle into sections that are a couple of inches smaller than the sock's length. You want extra sock on each side of the cut pool noodle to tie off.
Insert the pool noodle into a sock section. The noodle should fit snuggly inside. Make sure there is a bit of excess sock on either side of the noodle.
Cover the pool noodle and sock with clear cellophane. Using a twist tie, cinch the two ends of cellophane and sock. Trim any excess so that the pool noodle looks like a piece of candy.
Additional embellishments like curling ribbon can be added to cover the twist ties.
Where will you put your jumbo pool noodle Halloween candy? They look great in a Halloween tree but are also adorable in garlands and wreaths.
Also, think about switching up the sock colors for Christmas decorations!
