Today was such a Nice day!!!! It was the Perfect Sunday....Sunny and Warm. I did some yard work, Ralph did a few things around the house and washed his Truck & Harley. I spent most of my day tackling another room in our new house....The Sun Porch! I'm so excited to have finished this room...the weather is getting getting soooo Nice and it is an addition porch that is off the back of the house. The ceiling needs to be finished but for the most part it is done...I went to Pier One and bought the most adorable Summer dishes, The Cutest flower Napkin holders...Lowes had an Amazing Palm Tree that I had to have!! I also made a Hula Hoop Chandelier...I was so Excited to make this... I wanted my Sun Porch to have "Romantic" Lighting... The setting is "Romantic" out there to begin with....There is all woods in my backyard, crickets and birds singing....The Sunsets behind the house and the Breeze blows right through the whole area.



The Hula Hoop Project:

I went to the Dollar Store and bought a Hula Hoop for a $1 then I went to AC Moore to get some Romantic Lace that I would cover the hula hoop in and also to use as the hanging pieces.... The Three rolls of Lace were also a $1!!! SCORE! I had "icicle" white lights in a Christmas Bin in the basement so I pulled those out and also my Hot Glue gun....Wrapped the lights around the hula hoop and covered up the purple and pink hula hoop with the lace! Hung it and Wholla!!! A Magical Romantic Super Cute "Hula Hoop" Chandelier!!! YIPPEEEE


Here are some More Pictures of our Sunday.....






Little Breakfast Pun Marble Table...Samuel really Loves this Room. Happy we can start using it...a few more rooms to decorate...Next weekend I'm tackling the "Office" I have a few ideas in mind...I'm thinking deep purples...Hmmmm
I Bought Ralph a "Birthday" Pillow....see it on the Swing!! Home Goods has the BEST stuff....I think I may have been a little more excited about the Pillow than Ralph :o)
TV will eventually by mounted in the Corner... I've been getting several inquires about the Rug...Yes- I bought it Today...Home Goods! I really wanted the Sun Porch to be a room that we utilizes often... I was in there all afternoon!! It is so Cozy!! Tomorrow night will be our first "Dinner" Night eating out on the Sun Porch...Tonight we almost did but I still have a few things I want to do to the room. ;o)

Thank You Girls!!! :o)

LADennis said...

How did you hang the chandelier?

Sarah Renee said...

I had a plant hook (used for larger plants) that I used. I just twisted it into the ceiling and attached the hula hoop from the Lace Ribbon. :o)Its been hanging since I put it up there and seems to work really well :o)

Leigh Anne said...

Sarah Renee said...

Thank You Darlene and Thank you for Pinning!! :o) I stopped by your Blog and your Etsy shop, Love your work!!

Christian Spino said...

Wow! Your chandelier is adorable. Its warm color tone made your space look romantic. It’s ironic because the style of your lights reminds me of a winter snow flake crystal. I think that gave your light a very interesting twist.

Sarah Renee said...

Thank You Christian!! :o)

Susannah Richardson said...

I was wondering, how did you manage to the lights to the wall outlet? without the cord hanging there, looking unsightly

Sarah Renee said...

I was lucky to be able to tuck it into the vinyl siding, The hula hoop chandelier is on my screened in sunporch. You can still see it but it is hidden the best I could. Unless you can have someone that can get the cord through the wall...which is tough for most. The best advise I can give is buy an extension cord that matches the wall the best so it's not so visible. :o)

kathcake said...

genius!!!

Sarah Renee said...

Thank You :o)

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

this would be a fun projects for my girls bedroom!

Sarah Renee said...

Great Idea!! :o)

Rara said...

What a fantastic idea! Thanks sooo much for your creativity!! This is perfect- can't wait to go make mine!

Brandi said...

Adorable! I have a huge back patio with ceiling fans, but one little section of lattice and no lighting. We were going to do a candle chandelier but now we're thinking of doing this instead. How many strands of lights did you use?

Sarah Renee said...

That would be the perfect place for one! It's such a cheap idea for lighting. I bought the hula hoop at the dollar store and the ribbon at the craft store for 3 dollars! I only used one string of lights...they were the "icicle" kind that hang down. :)

Sarah Renee said...

Thank you Rara :o) you are so sweet!!

Sarah Renee said...

Thank you :o)

april said...

This is so pretty i made mine a couple weeks ago and finally hung it up today and it looks so pretty and was easy to make thank you. This is the first project i did from pinterest and i live how it turned out. Thank you again

Sarah Renee said...

That is so Exciting April and you are so very welcome!! I'm so happy you made one...Do you have any pics?? I love looking at other versions of mine, so pretty :o) Enjoy Fall!!

Kelsey Shingledecker said...

I'm thinking of hanging one of these in my bedroom above my bed. Did you glue the lights to the hoop itself or did you just glue the lace?

Sarah Renee said...

Hi Kelsey :o) I actually just wrapped the lights around, the lace I wrapped around too...every like 2 inches or so I would put a dot of hot glue for the lace just to be sure it would stay in place. Although overall it stayed pretty tight to the hula hoop, especially the lights :o)

Sarah Renee said...

Thank you :o)

mike said...

Sarah Renee said...

Kristine Smith said...

I think this would be fantastic to attach under a table umbrella for eating outside on a summer evening. Definitely going to try it once it gets warmer :) Thanks!!

Sarah Renee said...

That's a great idea Kristine!! :)

Playmobil Micro said...

Hula hoops are the classic toy that consists of a hollow plastic tube that can be tossed around your body. First inspired by the hula dancing of Hawaii, the toy has grown even more in popularity as tool a to help people lose weight.

Sarah Renee said...

I didn't know that about Hawaii, Thanks for the info :o)

Sarah Renee said...

Thank you :)

Sarah Renee said...

Hi :) thanks for stopping by! I will def check out your site :)

Christie R. said...

I so want to do this in my daughter's room but am having a hard time trying to figure out how to get the cord to an outlet without the use of an extension cord, or a creative way to hide the cord. Showing the cord would really take away from it's beauty. Any ideas?

Sarah Renee said...

I had a lot of trouble hiding the extension cord as well. Unless you are really crafty and know how to drill a hole and feed it through the wall it's going to be visible. I use mine on my sunporch so I was able to hide it a little along the siding. ;)

Anonymous said...

You can cover any cord with the lace sewn into a cord cover. Then add an extra ceiling hook very close to the wall where the outlet is located.

Sarah Renee said...

That is a Great Idea! Thanks for sharing :)

karol wilson said...

I just love what you did to your room. We are turning our entrance in the back to a patio. I cant wait! You have given me wonderful ideas! We live in ohio so I want it to be cozy even in the winter so thank you so much for this idea.

Anonymous said...

Wrap the cord lightly in Tulle!

Anonymous said...

This is such a great idea, thanks for the instructions!

Angela Vincent said...

Guys, I'm thinking that you could just use a battery-operated set of lights with an on/off switch to deal with the whole electric cord problem. I love this idea and want to use it this Christmas :-) (so it will have made it across the pond to England then!)

Sarah Renee said...

Thank you Angela :) and I think the battery operated set of lights is a GREAT idea! If you find them please let me know where you bought them :) would love to make a mini hula hoop chandelier for outside and would love to go cordless!

Sarah Renee said...

You are so welcome :) and thank you :)

Sarah Renee said...

Aww you are so welcome Karol! Please feel free to share pictures of your new space, would love to see :)

Sarah Renee said...

Yes :)

corkykay said...

You could run power through plastic pipe, hang it and tie into a outlet that is already established and put the outlet on the other end, just a little electrical knowledge can do it. We have used this on our patio before, I wanted a outlet on the outer post for a bug zapper.

I was wondering, is it safe fire-wise? I mean fabric, plastic, lights... Just wondering if you had an problems with it. Apart from that, it looks awesome!

Sarah Renee said...

Thanks :) and yes I had the same concern but it is extremely safe. My bulbs don't even get hot. I think because they are Christmas lights and they make them safer. Its like having your Christmas tree on and them up against the fake tree or ribbon. The fabric doesn't get hot. I guess there is always a risk as you hear of stories about Christmas trees catching fire do to the lights but I think its very rare and more so an electrical shortage of some sorts rather than the lights itself. :)

Sarah Renee said...

That is a GREAT Idea. :)
