We love sharing pictures of our loved ones around the house so when we saw this hula hoop photo display on SMP’s site, we had to replicate it with faux flowers and clear fishing line, it’s so pretty! It’s so fun to stop and look at an old picture and recreate the memory of what was going on when it was taken. I have one picture on the wall of my sweet one year old baby boy, holding tight to two rocks, one in each hand. We were playing outside that day so I placed them there to help him balance himself as he was learning to walk. He had the biggest smile on this little face, proudly sporting the 8 teeth he had. I took that picture of his fuzzy little toddler hair it takes me back to that winter day, I can still remember how soft his sweater was.

That same little guy is now a lacrosse player at age 12, scootering around the neighborhood when he isn’t swimming or riding motorcycles. I’m so glad I have that special little moment on my wall to remember another 12 years from now when he’s potentially starting his own little family. Funny how pictures can take you back in time and stir up feelings you may have forgotten.

You probably have all the supplies on hand to create your own unique hula hoop art! If your kiddo doesn’t have a hula hoop in the garage, check your local big box store, they’re usually a couple bucks. I’ve even seen them at my dollar stores during the summer months. I was only able to find this lime green hoop but knew when I spray painted it, it would totally change the look. We love how this pretty gold and floral project turned out. We also adore how it looks on our shiplap walls! It’s become quite the conversation piece with friends as well.

HOW TO MAKE A HULA HOOP PHOTO DISPLAY

To create your project, you’ll start by spray painting your hoop in your desired color. Gold is so on trend right now so we stayed with the original idea. It would be pretty in silver or even a fun color like coral too!
I sprayed mine with one good coat, let it dry for 30 minutes then flipped it over and repeated the process.
I found a pretty faux floral company on Instagram one day and fell in love with how realistic their blooms are. I ordered a bundle of their mini ranunculus along with some seeded eucalyptus stems. After the hoop was dry, I tied on the flowers with the fishing line until it wouldn’t budge. I repeated it with the stems, letting them drape over the hoop and tying it in inconspicuous knots on the backside of the hoop.

To tie on the rows for the pictures to be displayed, lay the hula hoop on a flat surface, it’s easy to work with that way. Tie a knot on one end, string across then tie a knot behind the hoop to secure. Repeat until you have 3-4 rows.

The original tutorial suggested using hot glue. That didn’t work out for us, it pulled the paint off and melted the plastic. We found that the fishing line is very sturdy and is nearly invisible which was a great solution for us.

Now that your photo hoop is done, clip on your favorite pictures!
We added a couple of free printables onto our hoop, a monogram for our last name and a picture of our sweet dog.

When creating gallery walls or picture displays, the key is to use the same tone of photo paper so it flows well. We were able to order all of our prints from Shutterfly all at once. Since we wanted to make 4″ squares instead of the traditional sizes, we were able to select them all at the same time to do it all at once. What a time saver! It did all the work for us! They turned out SO pretty and are great quality!

It’s been fun for the kids to move their favorite pictures around since we printed the whole photo shoot session.

  1. This is so adorable. I love it. We did something similar at my sisters wedding but just hung a clothesline outside and hung the photos. I love that you used a hula hoop!

  2. This large hula hoop display is really fun. Its also inexpensive and easy to do so its an idea available to everyone. I am thinking of teen rooms in particular.

  3. Really lovely! We rent and can’t add holes to our walls, so a hula hoop would help us display multiple things with the same pre-existing nail!

  4. Cute project! I like the metallic gold with the delicate pink in the faux flowers. The photo display is very attractive and easy to change up whenever you have new prints. Nice job!

  5. Clever and so pretty, brilliant idea for photo display. Guess had better be looking more carefully at $tree toys section. This is so versatile, could hang photos few ways. think will be making one of these myself for grand kids photos and another for “kids” photos when they were kids.
    Enjoy rest of week and weekend

  6. I love this! I really love the idea of ‘skinny’ wreaths, and they way you turned this into a photo display is perfect! You can never have enough dollar store hula hoops to turn into home decor, can you? Thanks so much for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!
