1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Help w/making 'hoop skirt' out of Xmas ornaments + kid's hula hoop on: December 03, 2011 10:27:58 AM
I need some ideas for figuring out how to attach about 200 small shatterproof Xmas ball ornaments into the shape of a skirt.

Sort of like this image: http://img3.etsystatic.com/il_570xN.234251067.jpg

but with little balls that look like this:


The bottom part of the skirt (the "hoop" bit) will be a kid's hula hoop (hey, it was cheap and the right size), and I'm trying to figure out how to string/attach the ornaments from my waist down/out to the bottom of the 'skirt'.

If I just string them on a string of some sort, they'll hang INSIDE the skirt due to their attachment points being at the top of the ornament. I'd like to use their existing ornament attachment points, though, not doing anything silly like drilling through them all to string on a string like pompoms.

Any ideas? Make an actual skirt of something (screen/chicken-mesh material) and attach them to that? How to attach? Any ideas welcome!
