STEP ONE:

Cut the hula hoop at the joint (usually found underneath the label). Use either PVC cutters or a hand saw. (TIP: Make sure you complete this step over flooring that can get wet. Some hula hoops are filled with water.)

STEP TWO:

Insert hula hoop ends into the “arms” of the PVC “T”. (TIP: Wrap gold duct tape around ends to make the fit tighter if needed.)

STEP THREE:

Cut PVC pipe to desired length and stick into ground. A rubber mallet can be helpful here. (TIP: To make it easier on ourselves, we spray painted our hoops once they were assembled and standing in place. To protect the grass from overspray we laid out a plastic grocery sack on the grass before sticking the PVC into the ground. Weight the sack with rocks or bricks if needed.)
