Hi! I hope this is the right board for this. I assume it counts as a plaything! Smiley

I love to hula hoop and have been making my own hoops for a couple years now. I got some requests for a tutorial on how I make them so I finally posted one on my blog! http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=1204



They're a lot bigger and better than the one's we used as kids. I also show how to make them really pretty with sparkly tapes! Smiley



Here's a list of supplies you'll need:
- Polyethylene tubing
- 1 connector that fits your tubing
- PVC pipe cutters
- Sharpie
- Tape Measure
- A flat iron or blow dryer
- Scissors
- Pretty tapes
I have links on my blog to places these things can be purchased.

I don't mean for this to be a go see my blog! kinda post, but the tutorial is really long and picture heavy so I'm not going to repost it here. It can be found here: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=1204 I hope you enjoy! Smiley

I haven't, but it would be easy to put whatever noise maker thingy of your choice into the tube before putting it together.
