Jumbo Popsicle Garland

by Kathleen Ballos

I love it when decorations are affordable, super quick, and make big impact and this popsicle garland definitely fits the bill. In case you don’t recognize them, the popsicles are made of chopped up pool noodles! They come in so many different colors that you can make your garland popsicles whatever “flavors” you like – and how about making real popsicles to match your color scheme? And don’t forget to make a giant popsicle piñata!
