If you have ever wondered how are pool floats made, this easy DIY will show you step by step how to make one.

The process is simple and you can put this together in hardly any time at all. This is one of my most favorite DIY Projects.

What all do you need to make a floating ice chest?


  • Plastic bin with a lip around the upper edge
  • Pool Noodle
  • String or Rope

How to make a cooler float:

1. Measure the rope around the plastic bin and cut the appropriate length. You’ll need enough to go around the entire plastic bin and to make a loop on one end so that the bin can be pulled around the pool easily.

2. Cut a pool noodle so that it can go around the entire plastic bin. You’ll need 4 individual noodles.

3. String the rope through the pool noodles and line them up under the lip of the bin.


4. Once the rope has gone through all the noodles, pull tightly and tie a knot to secure the noodles under the lip of the plastic bin.

5. Tie another knot at the very end of the rope to create a loop at the end of the bin. This is so that the pool cooler can be easily pulled around the pool.

Now you know how to make a diy pool float!

Pool noodle crafts are so fun and easy. I always pick up a few extra pool noodles on clearance at the end of the season to make crafts with. We are always making something around here.
