Ok..this had to be the most fun I have had with a craft project lately! The kids and I went to the Farmer’s Market last week. One of the vendors had Homemade Hula Hoops. My oldest is a Hula Hoop champ. She loves to Hula Hoop. Her hula hoop had broke a few months ago. I had been to every Walmart & Target around. I was told they where out of season. Really?! I didn’t know there was a Hula Hoop Season.
Anyway, The lady at the farmer’s market….She had Hula Hoops and was charging $25 each! Um…thanks, but no thanks. After I saw you could make your own I came home and consulted Google. Low and behold I found the directions and they were super easy!
The kids and I hit up Home Depot today for the supplies. Since I had so many requests for color I was out about $50….BUT….I have enough to make several more Hula Hoops for gifts! Plus, the PVC cutters are an investment because I will never need to buy another pair. Here is the cost breakdown.
- PVC Irrigation Tubing 100’ $9.95
- PVC Cutters $12.95
- Couplers (10 pack) $3.95
- Electrical tape colored rolls $3.95 each…ouch!
Check out our video below!
I figure I have enough stuff to make 10 kids hula hoops. For a little less than $5 each! That is a great unique and thoughtful gift. I would have never been able to find a camo hula hoop for my son, but I sure can make one! 🙂
I have more Homemade Christmas posts, and more to come!
