Old Fashioned Party Games :: Ring Toss & Fabric Wrapped Hula Hoops


Sharing pictures from our Mother Daughter Tea Party last weekend reminded me that I still have quite a few birthdays and party games that I never had a chance to post here on the blog. The kids keep reminding me too. They love looking through the archives and scrolling through all their past birthday parties!

Today I'm going to finally finish up a post that has been in my draft folder for nearly two years. I made this ring toss & fabric wrapped hula hoops inspired by Two Shades of Pink for our oldest daughter's "Anne of Green Gables" birthday. It was easy to make and turned out so pretty. We still pull it out occasionally in the spring and summer.


Here is what I used: 
  • Empty Soda Bottles, wash and dried
  • Pink Spray Paint
  • White Spray Paint
  • Wooden Crate
  • Small Embroidery Hoops
  • Pretty Fabric
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks


Keeping it as quick and simple as possible, I spray painted the crate white and the bottles pink. Later that evening, the night before the birthday party, I wrapped both the inner and outer rings of the embroidery hoops with strips of pretty fabric, securing it with dabs of hot glue, to make six rings.  












Using longer/wider strips of fabric, I also wrapped the hula hoops, securing the fabric with hot glue. They turned out so pretty and were such a fun addition to the party!
