DIY Gold Decorative Sphere Made From Hula Hoops


This DIY Gold Decorative Sphere is made entirely from hula hoops! Using hula hoops from the Dollar Tree, I inserted the hoops inside each other and used picture hanging wire to hold them together. Once the sphere was created, I used gold metallic spray paint to give it the final look. It's a great decorative home decor accessory.

    Where did you find the great marble -looking candle stand?

      They remind me of the column bases I have seen at Hobby Lobby. They are white and ready for custom painting. Or look at an antique shop for the real thing. They do make a stunning candle stand.

    Are all of the hoops the same size? Did you have a problem keeping them round?

    Super idea! Anyone have suggestions as to a paint that would stick if used outside? This would make a great garden feature, but, being plastic, I sadly doubt paint would adhere and withstand the wearher. I visualize these in various sizes and finishes either standing alone or on different bases as wonderful yard art. Thanks for the creativity.

      Wonderful, Angela! Going out tomorrow and will have to pick up a can. Can't wait to get it in the garden!

    Love this idea! I'd like to create one as a garden sculpture, just a cheap version of the real-deal!
