Alright, the 4th of July has come and gone… But wait! Don’t pack up the 4th of July decorations yet… Enjoy them for about another month, combined with some of your red and white Christmas decorations and along with some Dollar Tree flowers and a Hobby Lobby fireworks pick.This tutorial is to give you an idea of what you can do with what YOU already have on hand. Use this floating pool arrangement to decorate your pool for Christmas in July!
If you don’t have a pool, this Christmas in July arrangement can also double as a large centerpiece! I’ve used a combination of some Christmas ornaments I had on hand already, Dollar Tree, and Hobby Lobby items in this project. This project is VERY inexpensive to make, but will present a HUGE wow factor! Follow these video instructions and create your very own floating Bowdabra creation!
First, unwrap the loofah poofs and feed them over the pool noodles. Next, coil the pool noodles into a circle and secure with some zip ties. It does not to be perfectly round.
Now, cut the hula hoop in half. Poke a hole in the pool noodle circle and insert the ends of the hula hoop. Form an arch like shape. Remove the hula hoop and wrap with 6 inch mesh all round in lieu of painting. Now, place the hula hoop back into the holes you made in the pool noodle. You may secure with hot glue if desired. You’ve made a faux floating basket for your floating pool arrangement.
Lay the mesh into the Bowdabra which you have either placed some Bowdabra bow wire or a zip tie. Make two loops on each side.
Place the greenery bushes in the Bowdabra now. Then, add the dollar tree floral bushes. Fold them in half so that there are three blooms on each side and lay into the Bowdabra.
Next, place some more mesh into the Bowdabra from the top forming a scrunchy bow. Finally, add the excess roses. Zip tie or tie your bow wire and remove from the Bowdabra. Fluff your swag and place in the faux floating basket securing with zip ties
To finish add the embellishments like ornaments and other doo dads. You can even add lights if desired. Optional: Decorate the handle with another scrunchy bow and flowers.
You have a gorgeous floating centerpiece for Christmas in July!
