Making Wonky Mini Hoops Vlog

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, September 26, 2011


Armed with a hacksaw, irrigation tubing and some duct tape, we made our own mini hoops. Why? We wanted to learn some cool new mini tricks and thought it'd be fun to experiment. Plus, we thought it'd be cheaper if we learned how to make our own hoops. It worked out okay... We used stuff we found at the hardware store, but we found a place online that sells real hooping supplies at a discounted price (hoopsupplies.com). We'll probably try that next time. We're definitely not selling hoops, just wanna make our own.

We stuck in a little random hooping, flow wand (been practicing around the head and the loop moves), and we have two guest hoopers. :) Watch for them. (It's not Chubs and Pudding--this time, anyway...)

Hoop on, Brave Sparkers!!

    That was such a fun video! Thanks! I'm still trying to learn to use a hula hoop. I'm picking it up more than hooping! Any tips?

    Some of that hooping action was reminding me of the baton twirlers in our high school band - and that was even before you brought out the nunchuk-y thing! But my favorite part was when the hoop hit the tripod :^)

    Love the T-shirts. I have Poi Poi at school and am still trying to master them. I await a tutorial v-log from the master. All I have to go on are written instructions and some youtube demos that discourage me more than anything.
PS - I think you are totally evolved!

    Wow - you made me smile this foggy morning in Sweden! I tried to start hooping this summer but after a month of practising without success I sort of gave up... but you inspire me to start again although it is harder as the weather is making it hard to hoop outside... thands for being so nutty!

    Hi Shelli;

That was so cool for you to do. I ordered 1 hula hoop and it was too big but I couldn't get it apart so I ordered a smaller one. I also have the arm set. Wish I could have made my own and I would have saved money.You where having a lot of fun and that is what it is all about. Stay with your healthy life style and have fun. God bless you always. Learn something new each day and you do. Patent your way of making the hoops.

    I am amazed at what you come up with to add to your hula hoop experience! I am still trying to figure out how to keep the hoop up and spinning. I never got the hang of it when I was young. I am hoping that with your encouraging videos that I may finally get the hang of it. Have a great day! emoticon
