It’s Hoola-Hoopin’ Time!

Hey again Zesters! Hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather! When was the last time you tried hoola-hooping? I recently just picked up the hobby again and it’s awesome. Did you know that hoola-hooping is an EXCELLENT work-out?! Don’t bother buying one, make it yourself! It’s so incredibly easy! Here’s how to do it.

Here is ALL that you will need:

  • 1/2 or 3/4 in. Coiled PEX Piping- 25 ft long
  • 1/2 or 3/4 in. Connecter piece
  • Colored Duct-Tape

First, head on over to the Home Depot or your local hardware store.

Then look for your piping! Remember, 3/4″ PEX coiled piping! When I went, I asked a person working there to help me locate and cut the piping.

Now, you want the hoola-hoops to be about 3 1/2 ft in diameter, smaller if for a little youngster like my nephew

Once you have your piece you feel is suitable for you, get your connector and snap it in to one side.

Then snap it together!

Now you have a hoola-hoop! Now its time to decorate it.

Get some colored duct-tape…

Tape the part you just snapped in.

Then place the duct tape diagonally and duct tape around the hoop. Watch out for air bubbles! Be sure to leave room for some white space, if you want two colors.
