Hula Hoop Craft Ideas

Although the diameter of the hula hoop is quite large, it is still an excellent shape for making some unique and eye-catching projects. A little imagination goes a long way and can result in coming up with very decorative items.

Take this flower for example. The petals are created out of coffee filters which are intricately glued together. If it was up to me, I would attach a balloon in the middle to represent the heart of the flower.

Projects like these would spruce up any wedding, anniversary, promotion, or graduation party. You can even take it a step further by giving the filters any color you want.

Kids love colors and they could help out making their own Birthday party decoration. Give them a brush, some water-color paint, and either let them paint the rims or the entire coffee filter. Success and fun are guaranteed.

It may not immediately cross your mind, but the perfectly round hoop is ideal for making wreaths.

The size may be a bit too much for your own front door, but it would work well for businesses, churches, or simply to hang on a wall inside your home.

How about canopies, tents, handbags, chandeliers, or clocks? I think I gave you enough inspiration to approach this toy from the perspective of an artist and all this proves one thing.

There is much more to the hula hoop then just going around in circles!
