Now you have a ring you take anywhere and hook onto anything around the house – your very own DIY basketball hoop! Tip: Make a net by using an old shopping bag and taping it onto the wire.
How do you make a basketball hoop out of a hanger?
First, bend the hanger into a circle and bend the hook down 90 degrees. Then, cut your cardboard into a rectangle for the backboard and decorate it with marker pens. Tape the hook of the hanger to the bottom of your backboard. If you want to add a net, you can also make one out of string.
What basketball backboard material is best?
Tempered glass backboards are typically most desirable due to their more rigid than other backboard materials. The more rigid feel provides for a better rebound when the ball bounces off the backboard. Glass backboards are seen on every high-end basketball system and some intermediately priced systems.
