Festive Christmas Centerpieces Made From Hula Hoops

You can make some seriously gorgeous centerpieces out of simple hula hoops. It's hard to believe that this awesome, upcycled holiday décor started out as a plastic children's toy!

It just takes a touch of spray paint and a few layers of greenery, baubles, string lights and other supplies you can pick up at your local dollar store, plus something to use as the base, like a slab of wood. The result is a stunning holiday hoop decoration that fits nicely on a table, dresser or even on the floor next to your Christmas tree.

Christmas Hula Hoop Chandeliers

Learn how to transform your hula hoop into a chandelier! It's actually pretty simple. Here's a quick rundown of the steps:

  1. Spray paint the hula hoop and decorate it any way you like. Ideas include wrapping it with ribbons, twining faux evergreen branches around it or covering it with glitter.
  2. Attach ribbons to the hoop at 6–8 points, like the spokes of a wheel. Make sure they are all the same length so it hangs evenly.
  3. Attach the tops of the ribbons to a keyring. This is the hanger for the chandelier.
  4. Add some dangling decorations, like fake crystals, big beads, colourful ornaments or feathers.
  5. Hang it up and admire it!
