Rescued Hoops

It seems every year the hoola hoop we purchased the previous year is thrashed. All the pretty is gone off the outside and it looks so nasty I feel like throwing it out and getting a new one. But sheesh what a waste when it still functions so we keep using it anyway. We like the ones with a bit of water inside for weight they are much smoother and the kids can go for hours with them.

 I was at Staples this week and they had some printed duct tape which is normally very spendy on clearance for a dollar. I grabbed it because it was a super duper deal. Then I needed to come up with a reason to have brought it home.

 Today I saw the hoola hoops, remembered the tape and an idea was born.

Tools I used, Hoop, Tape, and Scissors
 I was going to just roll around the whole thing but it was going to bunch too much and waste tape. So I rolled and cut each strip.
 And it works!!!!
 I had some other duct tape left from a previous project so I did both hoops. This did not take the entire roll and you may be able to get two from one roll but I did not test that theory.
