DIY Dollar Tree Hula Hoop Photo Hanging Display (Great for Weddings & Parties!)
Love a clever Dollar Tree tip?
You’ve gotta check out this fun photo display I just made using a hula hoop and supplies from Dollar Tree! Show off photos at a wedding, party, graduation, shower – and even use this idea as fun wall decor in a teen room. I plan to put this in my daughter’s newly decorated room, so she can display her own pictures!
Grab these Dollar Tree supplies first!
You may already have a hula hoop to re-purpose at home, but if not, Dollar Tree has these small, child-sized hula hoops like the one pictured. There are quite a few varieties of faux flowers, succulents, and greenery available there as well, or if you prefer to use some other varieties from the craft store, that’d work, too.
Go for gold!
I love the gold metallic trend in crafts and decor that’s popular right now – it’s so fun! You’ll need some spray paint, and I used this Rustoleum Metal Finish in gold, which turned out pretty. I’m using baker’s twine to hang photos, but if you prefer, another string or fishing line could be good instead.
Finally, the mini clothespins are for holding your personal photos. So cute!
Heat up that trusty glue gun!
After spraying the hula hoop gold and letting it dry, start pulling apart and deconstructing the faux flowers and greenery. This is the key to making them look like an arrangement. You can come up with any style or pattern, as there’s no right or wrong here. You’ll notice I created one longer arrangement and one shorter on the diagonal, mixing individual flowers, leaves, and succulents.
Make sure to use plenty of hot glue to secure the flowers and extra-heavy succulents so they’ll stay put.
