Hula hoops aren’t just for playing… Make a wreath!
Most people probably don’t think about door wreaths when they look at a kid’s hula hoop. But when you’re a crafter, anything can become a piece of beautiful home decor – you just need a touch of creativity!
They may not be the most obvious crafting supply, but the humble hula hoop can make a big splash with your home decor or as a statement decor piece for a party. Now is the time of year to stock up on hula hoops! Most big box stores and dollar stores have them, and they’re so inexpensive.
I love using hula hoops to create fun door wreaths. You know I love decorating my house all year round, not just at Christmas time, and a door wreath is one of those decor items that really brings a smile to my face. You can switch it up depending on the season, or just go for something neutral that you can display year-round.

12 hula hoop wreath ideas and DIYs
You don’t need much to create a beautiful hula hoop door wreath. Some ribbon or a lick of paint, and some sort of eye-catching focal point is enough to transform a plastic hula hoop into a gorgeous DIY door wreath.
Here are 12 inspiring hula hoop wreaths to get your ideas flowing!
1. Use twine to create a web effect
This giant Christmas wreath from Homemade Ginger is just beautiful, and it’s perfect for transitioning from Christmas decor through the rest of the winter.
I absolutely love the effect the twine gives when it’s criss-crossed around the hula hoop. It’s so simple, but so effective.
2. Give your hula hoop a rustic vibe with burlap
Wrapping a hula hoop in strips of burlap not only covers up the cheap-looking plastic, but also brings a touch of farmhouse charm to your home decor.
This burlap wreath from All Things With Purpose made my neutral-loving heart skip a beat! I love the super simple white flowers alongside the rustic burlap – such a beautiful combination.
3. Use pretty pastels for a spring-themed wreath
If you want to brighten up your home decor once spring arrives, this pastel pink wreath is ideal.
With a little bit of spray paint and a craft store garland, you can quickly and easily whip up this spring-inspired hoop wreath. It’s a great way to say goodbye to the cold winter, and welcome in a bit of sunshine!
4. Wreaths can be hung indoors too!
If you don’t have a suitable door to hang a wreath, they can be hung indoors too!
This floral hoop wreath from Less Than Perfect Life Of Bliss is stunning in its simplicity, with some greenery around one half of the hula hoop, and the rest left plain. The wooden embroidery hoop is beautiful enough with no additional decoration (though you could easily spray paint a plastic hula hoop too!).
I love the word ‘happy’ highlighted in the center of this wreath. Hung in front of a window, it gives a fun reminder every time you look outside.
5. Arrange multiple wreaths into a wall display
If you can’t stop yourself after making just one wreath, why not make a whole set? Hang a simple arrangement on the wall to give your room a really lovely focal point.
These giant Christmas wreaths from Ruffled are covered with moss and fake flowers. It would be really easy to tailor them to your own taste by using different varieties of flowers in different colors. The moss and dusty rose flowers give this wreath a wintry feel, but switch to a bright green moss, and this would easily be a spring/summer wreath. Let your imagination run wild!
6. Wrap a hula hoop in ribbon
Wrapping a hula hoop in ribbon is a really easy (and mess-free!) way to transform it. I adore the effect of the high contrast black and white ribbon on this spring hula hoop wreath from Refresh Restyle.
The pop of the bright tulips against the black and white hoop makes this wreath really fun and modern. Grab some supplies from the dollar store, and you can make this wreath on a shoestring budget!
7. Find the perfect balance of flowers and words
How stunning is this spring wreath from Thrifty & Chic – tell me it doesn’t look like something that came straight from Hobby Lobby!
The beautiful arrangement of flowers and the golden word ‘hello’ are a great combination, and make this wreath look anything but homemade. The pastel flowers give it a spring feel, but you could swap those out seasonally and keep this wreath up year-round.
8. Flowers aren’t just for spring!
Don’t feel you can only use flowers during the springtime – this fall hoop wreath from Simply Designing shows that if you choose autumnal colors, they can be perfect for fall too.
This blogger used a gold macrame hoop to create her wreath, but you can get the same look with a hula hoop and a can of gold spray paint. This would be perfect for Thanksgiving entertaining!
9. Use paper for a vibrant indoor wreath
If flowers aren’t your thing, you could stick with leaves instead! This paper wreath from Damask Love is fun and vibrant, with bright green paper creating bold leaf shapes all over.
The red paper bow makes this wreath perfect for Christmas – or make a different focal point for different times of year.
10. Wreaths can make great frames!
Using a wreath as a picture frame is a great way to make them practical and useful, as well as beautiful. This Christmas wreath frame from Harlow & Thistle is the perfect example!
Just thread some fine wire from one side of the hula hoop to the other, and use it to hang your favorite holiday photographs. It would also be a great way to display your Christmas cards!
11. Frame your favorite wooden sign with a hula hoop
If you find a wooden sign that you’d like to display, framing it with a hula hoop wreath is a great way to turn it into a fun feature of your home decor.
This ‘hey y’all’ sign from Wonderful Creations is framed with a plastic hula hoop, sprayed with gold paint. It’s a quick way to transform a $1 hoop into something really stunning!
12. Don’t be afraid of symmetry!
Here’s another stunning fall-themed wreath from Shanna Hatfield.
Most wreaths seem to be asymmetrical, but I love the simple symmetry of this DIY hula hoop wreath! The colors of the flowers are just stunning, and they go beautifully with the copper hoop.
