Instructions

For this project, simply wind the artificial greenery and tinsel around the hoop, making sure to cover each space, and secure it with small pieces of craft wire as needed. Now add the Christmas ball or any other decorations you like, then hang it using a hook on your door, window, wall or at the top of the fireplace! Some hoops are filled with water and can deform in time, so it's wise to put subtle pins as support on the underside of your hoop decoration.

Instructions

For this project, you simply have to wind the ribbon or tape all around the hoop. If you are using a red ribbon, be sure to wrap it tightly around so that no sagging appears later. To ensure this, use glue as you work it around the hoop. If you are using red electrical tape, simply wrap it around the hoop, but be careful with the spacing. If you cannot find a white hula hoop, just paint one yourself or use white electrical tape.
