Hula Hoop Light

DIY: Backyard Hula Hoop Light Fixture

May 19, 2014 by Ashley Willis

We found a great Hula Hoop light on Pinterest and we needed to recreate our own! This light is cheap, easy to make and above all else, a really fun touch for your backyard! See how we put this light together in our step-by-step tutorial ….

STEP 1: Find your hula hoop and string lights. We picked up a small hula hoop for our first try and found really cheap string lights at Target and


STEP 2: Slowly and tightly string the lights around the hula hoop. If you have excess when you reach the beginning again, simply keep stringing the lights, but more loosely to ensure you don’t have too many lights in one section. Stringing the lights while they’re lit will help prevent overcrowding in one region.


STEP 3: To hang our new light fixture under our umbrella, we found bright blue ribbon to match the color of the Hula Hoop.


STEP 4: We looped three ribbons to tie to the spokes under our umbrella


STEP 5: Tie the ribbon in a bow, as long or as short as you’d like


WALA! The finished product is a gorgeously unique light that will illuminate your backyard! Cheap and chic – Yea, we love it!
