ok, so i've been absolutely dying to make my own humongous hula hoop, and was just wondering if anyone has done this.

i was going to go to home depot to check out the tubing i want to use, but i think you can only get it in large amounts (like 100 feet or something crazy--and what the heck am i gonna do w/ that much tubing??? guess i could make hoops for everyone i know).

has anyone used other type of materials, or know where i can buy it in smaller quantities? (although, since i live in hawaii, i'm sort of limited to wear i can shop).

i found this great website tute, and it even has directions for making collapsable hoops--which is great for me, b/c i travel alot and would love to bring a hoop w/ me on trips....

I know at home depot you can get the tubing cut to any length you want, not just huge amounts...  did you actually ask a person about it?  I've found they're usually pretty nice.   Smiley

Ok, I know this is and OLD topic BUT I just found out about Hooping and I am very excited to start! Anybody else? The link above is the one that it seems everyone refers to when making their own hoops, so that is what I am gonna follow too! http://www.jasonunbound.com/hoops.html 42 in diameter seems to be the standard beginner size. Hooping seems to have become quite a craze; check out http://www.hoopnotica.com/ and watch the hooping video... it is beautiful!

I can't wait to get started, who's with me?Huh

I'm doing make-your-own-hoop kits for my first craft fair, next weekend.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=328235.0 These are the samples I've been working on, and the looked so nice in the afternoon light I couldn't resist taking some pictures.
