Make Your Own Hula Hoops

Joyce Got some free time this weekend? Joyce Harbin Cole has been making hoops for the first time and so can you. While she doesn’t necessarily reinvent the instructions or anything, she’s got some great photos to share of her experience. She writes, “Last night we made our own hula hoops! I’ve been wanting to try this ever since seeing how much easier it looks to hoop with one of these large hoops….the ones you buy at the dime store are just too small for grown ups. They turned out to be very easy to make and to use! And …whew! You can get a pretty good workout hula hooping! So here’s how to make a hula hoop: I bought some 3/4 inch irrigation tubing in the plumbing department at Lowes. It’s the 160 psi, and seems to be a nice weight for hula hoops. Not too heavy, and not too bendy. I bought a roll of 100 feet for 25 dollars. We made 4 hoops last night and probably have enough left for four or five more.” Full post: Home Again Vintage Treasures
