You may remember some of our previous hula hoop craft projects including a holiday wreath with tree branches and a holiday wreath of faux wrapped gifts. This year, we have an even shinier holiday wreath for you, courtesy of Stephanie at cre8ive designs: a holiday wreath made of Christmas ornaments. The concept is similar to the other holiday wreaths we have featured here at hooping.org – use your hula hoop as a base and then attach your bauble of choice. All you need are hoops, craft wire, hoop tape (electrical tape or glitter tape for some extra pizazz), and lots of ornaments. Stephanie used a 29″ hoop and ended up with 164 ornaments on her wreath. Use non-glass ornaments to prevent breakage! Thanks to good old fashioned trial and error there are lots of tips provided that will save you valuable time and resources, so what are you waiting for? Grab an old hoop or two and deck the halls with a shiny holiday hula hoop wreath!
Linda from Party Craft Secrets knew what to do when her daughter tolder her “my hula hoop doesn’t work any more”. The hoop had been squashed in a door and become a little square shaped. Rather than toss into a landfill, Linda writes, “inspired by many extremely beautiful beribboned canopies on the internet”, decided to make one of her own. “I suddenly remembered a bag full of streamer odds and ends that had been torn down from previous crafting experiments and left for a rainy day… or a sunny day as it turned out!” In 15 minutes and using some wool to hang the hoop and a stapler to clip the streamer-bits in place, they made magic. Linda explains, “The girls decided what we made was everything from a super-shower, a rainbow-waterfall, a giant sea monster, a princess palace, to a play-area for kids to have mini-parties.” Using lightweight fabric or ribbon you could probably create something a little more permanent as well and with a little more color coordination and some imagination this idea could be turned into something special for a multitude of decorating or party theme ideas.
