An Ode To The Pink Flamingo

DIY Pink Flamingo / Hula Hoop Chandelier

We were so sad to hear about the passing of sculptor Don Featherstone, inventor of the pink plastic flamingo. In remembrance of our fun-loving plastic friend, we thought we would share this DIY pink flamingo/hula hoop chandelier we recently made for an event.

DIY Pink Flamingo Chandelier

All you need are a few dozen flamingos and three hula hoops, which you can pick up inexpensively at your local dollar store. Pull it all together with some nylon rope, and voilà! A rad three–tiered centerpiece for your next party. Just remember to take a few minutes of silence for Don Featherstone, the unsung hero who made it all possible. Well, not exactly unsung—after all, he did win a Nobel Prize.
