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.

How to make a Hula Hoop Pumpkin Hanger
Second, cut 1/2 -1-inch square making sure to do this step as you go around the hula hoop. Some of the squares need to be cut at an angle. Glue down the square you cut as you go.
Third, the pumpkin will start taking form as you cut the squares and glue them down. Make sure you pull each square tight as you glue them down.
What a nice idea. lol Who would have thought that hula hoop can be used in that sense. Who ever made that is very creative.
