Pin of the Week: DIY Pool Rope

So I am going to try something out to get me blogging AND getting somethings done around the house. Introducing, my pin of the week.  I will choose a pin from Pinterest each week and execute it (I also may cheat and just show you things I have done before on busy weeks). I have been using Pinterest since the beta and I can’t recommend it enough to everyone. I’ve made all kinds of things and can always find a good drink recipes in seconds…so now I share the ones that work and don’t!

This week: DIY Pool Rope.

The Problem

We have never had a rope to designate the deep end of the pool. Landon knows it because of the hooks on the side and just practice but guests don’t really know where it starts to drop off. Buying a pool rope can actually be pretty expensive…and lame. These are the perfect Pinterest moments because I’m all “oh there has to be a DIY version”.

The Pin

Well actually I never found a pool rope tutorial. Instead I found this DIY pool noodle garland and figured that would work just fine.

The Result

Happy to say IT WORKED! I altered it a bit with 1 inch sections and gave it a whirl.


3 pool noodles ($3 total from Dollar Tree)

Nylon rope ($6 for 150 ft from Town & Country Hardware)

Exacto knife




  1. Mark off your noodle every 1 inch (adjust to width you would like. Remember you want the rope to be able to move in the water a bit.).
  2. Cut with exacto knife.
  3. Repeat 1 & 2 for all 3 noodles (or the number you need in length).
  4. String the noodle pieces onto the rope.
  5. Tie it to the pool hooks.
