DIY: Hula Hoop Chandelier

Think twice before you toss out your kids’ old hula hoops. Pull 'em out from the corner of your garage and put them to use by creating a statement-making, globe chandelier. All you need to complete this project is four hula hoops, two machine screws and bolts, a hot glue gun and a pendant light kit. After constructing the base, give the sphere a solid coat (or two) of metallic paint to achieve the look of true metal fixtures.
