Step 2: Cut foam noodle
If unsure cut a longer portion of foam than required and trim off excess as desired.
Pool noodle is a funny name.But since noodles aren't hollow, these should really be called foam bucatini. But I digress. Where was I? Ahh yes, cutting the foam. Cut foam to length and insert dowel, there should be enough friction between the dowel and the foam to hold it in place. If not, use a liberal amount of hot glue to secure the dowel in place.
