How to make A Hula Hoop Light
Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures, but the chandelier was easier than I thought it would be to make.
First, place the hula hoop on a flat surface (table ) and weave the lights over and under, while you weave your lights tie the lights to the hula hoop with the fishing line.
Next, pre-cut the fishing line into 8-inch pieces. I trimmed each piece after I finished cutting them. Also, I cut the fishing line into three 36-inch pieces to hang the chandelier. You’ll want to place the plug where you can get to it.
Additionally, I used an extension cord to plug my Hula Hoop Chandelier light into the outlet. Also, I use an automatic timer to turn it off, with a remote control keychain. You can purchase the remote control keychain at Lowe’s.
Also, you can spray paint the hula hoop and use ribbon to hang it. I chose the fishing line because I was hanging it up outside and wanted it to last longer due to the weather.
What do you think ? It really looks pretty at night time .

This is such a beautiful idea that since I live in an apartment I’m going to make it a hanging chandelier for my bedroom.
Thank you for the idea. Btw, my dad nicknamed me Ole as a child so your company name caught my eye 🙂
