“It’s all good until someone gets hurt,” is the old saying, and it’s an apt way to describe the initial enthusiasm behind DIY décor projects. They look so pretty online, and once you’ve read the tutorial you’re certain that anyone could pull it off. So, to the store you go. Alas, by the end of the day you’ve discovered that DIY is a true challenge and you’re staring at mess that was meant to be a thing of beauty.
Our advice? Don’t take no for an answer! Keep trying and eventually you’ll create works of art. Truly beautiful and unique projects are for those gals who don’t give up. Resist the urge to return to the world of retail in search of something lovely to add to the home. Forge ahead instead and you’re sure to find success eventually.
If sleek, polished outcomes are your goal in DIY you might want to skip this project. Its intent is a whimsical, far less than perfect outcome that sells itself on its unique character. If you love whimsy and ambient light, though, you will love this idea. The perfect location is a teenage girl’s room or a party decoration for any age!
The only materials are a hula hoop (yes, a hula hoop!), several yards of pretty transparent ribbon, and white Xmas lights on a white wire. Buy a neutral colored hula hoop or one that is a color close to the color scheme of your room. Wrap the entire hula hoop in a layer of ribbon and secure it with hot glue. Tie one end of eight pieces of ribbon at an even spacing around the hula hoop. This is how it will hang from the ceiling.
When it’s time to hang it you will bring them all together at their ends, tie them in a knot, and hang the “chandelier” from a central point on the ceiling. To turn your ribbon hula hoop into a chandelier, wrap strings of white Xmas lights around it. Try the icicle style lights because they will dangle elegantly rather than look like tightly wrapped wires. When your hula hoop chandelier is complete, hang it up, plug it in, and gaze at it adoringly!
It’s time to start planning an awesome party for the kids! What better time to have some summer fun than the ultimate holiday for being outdoors? We’re guessing you already have the menu and decorations planned for your event, but there’s a good chance you haven’t yet planned out the games. The best part about summer is that it has an easy going vibe that makes life seem breezy and fun. As such, planning for a party shouldn’t feel like a big burden! To help you along we’re sharing seven quick ways to create a super day of play!
