Christmas Hula Hoop Ideas

Everyone loves to have some nice decorations for the festive season. Take your centerpiece to the next level by simply spray painting a hula hoop and mounting it to a wooden base. You can add Christmas baubles and figurines as you like. You could also collect pine cones and add them to your display. Add string lighting to really make it shine. You can use scrap wood for your base.

You can use hoops of any size. For example, if you are looking for smaller ones, use an embroidery hoop. They would also look great for a winter wedding. Check out these decorations for inspiration.


Lighted Centerpiece

To make this, you'll need to purchase a wood slice and a hoop. You can use whatever color baubles you like; this one incorporates red and silver. When you have arranged them on your ring, you can then hang three different baubles at different lengths on the inside. Add fairy lights for some magic.


Decadent Gold

To make this stunning piece, you can re-purpose Christmas decorations. For example, you can spray paint old decorations gold if they aren't already that color. You can wrap some nice jute or rope around the hoop and purchase a deer figurine from the dollar store, which can also be spray painted gold.


Snowman Scene

It's impossible to neglect the charm of a snowman when decorating for the holidays. You can make this scene with figurines you already have or purchase some from the local dollar store. Adding bottle brush trees will really make it stand out.


Three Rings

For this beautiful and festive piece, you can use a wood slice at the base and three different-sized rings to make it unique. Wrap a piece of garland around the outer ring to create a display of Christmas baubles, bottle brush trees, and pine cones on the bottom.


Floral Centerpiece

This one would be perfect for a winter wedding. You can use garland at the base and then an assortment of seasonal or faux flowers.


Silver Bells

This would even make an impressive wreath to hang on your front door or on your porch. The silver bells at the top of the ring are so eye-catching, while the natural elements around it really bring nature through.



For a cozy winter decoration for your window, this piece is perfect. You can use a battery-operated tea light in the candle holder and add fairy lights for brightness.



Forest green is a must when decorating for the festive season. These are two examples of incorporating color into your winter centerpiece.


Snowy White

Use an embroidery hoop if you want to make your piece smaller. You can go with an all-white theme for a delicate look. Incorporate some white feather boa for an ethereal feel and use silver bells to really bring the look together.



A deer stands proudly at the center of this ring which has been placed on a recycled lantern as a base. Use faux berries to give the feel of a winter forest.


Rose Gold

Rose gold is such an elegant choice for decorating with. You can use faux snow on your wood slice to start with and make an owl from pine cones.


Red and Gold

Layering up many red and gold baubles on your hula hoop will look fantastic for a Christmas decoration. Finish by adding a "Merry Christmas" sign at the bottom.


Lit Ring

The reindeer can be purchased in places such as Hobby Lobby.


Leopard Print

Add an eye-catching pattern with leopard print baubles.
