Learn how to make this simple and adorable Hula Hoop Pumpkin for Halloween. This big bright orange pumpkin is made by using a hula hoop and felt.
Also, the pumpkin can be hung up indoors or outdoors on a porch. It’s the perfect pumpkin project for kids to help make.
Today, I’m going to share with all of you how I made this cute pumpkin wall hanger.
I actually purchased the hula hoop from the Dollar Tree and had it in my hall closet for some time collecting dust.
Every time I went into the coat closet I would trip over the hula hoop. Finally, last night I had enough!
After, staring at the hula hoop for awhile I decided I would make a pumpkin with it, because I love making Halloween crafts with my son.
I was pleasantly surprised how cute the pumpkin turned out. Now, I have to decide if I want to leave it inside on the floor leaning against the wall or hang it outside on my front porch.
