I picked one up the other day and was rather excited when I was still able to spin a good turn.
With that an idea was born and so a crafting we will go.....
Hula Hoop DIY
I used 1/2 inch for the girls.
Each hoop needs a double end fitting of size of pipe.
You'll need to measure the height of the hoop to the person by creating a hoop with the pipe that reaches somewhere between the hips and armpits.
Cut the pipe with a hack saw, quick- cheap- easy.
No need for the cutting tools that ranged from $10-$50.
Since I didn't figure it was necessary for a simple craft I left it on the shelf.
Have you ever bought multiple rolls of tape, it is rather expensive I might say.
Here is the choices we found.
I was later informed that Walmart carried many more styles for cheaper...*of course.
It also makes the hoop more rigid and this is of great benefit when learning to hula.
