A DIY Teepee Reading Tent & A Woodland Themed Toddler Room

A couple of years ago, I made a sweet little teepee play tent for my toddler to read in. She loves cuddling in there with a book!
Time: 1 Days Cost: $60 Difficulty: Medium

It wasn't too hard to make this darling teepee. It took about a day to sew, and the materials aren't that expensive.

Doesn't it look sweet in her woodland themed room?

To make the teepee, I found 4 dowels at Home Depot and cut them to 6 feet tall. I secured them together at the top with twine.

Using some painter's drop cloth, I cut out 4 triangles and made one shorter than the others so that I could add some door flaps from contrasting fabric.

Next, I cut out some doors and a decorative circle from polka-dot fabric, sewed them to the drop cloth and added some pom-pom trim. I sewed all four triangles together and left some casing for the dowels.

I slipped the tent over the dowels, added a crochet heart embellishment, and my daughter's reading tent was done!

    This is adorable - I love the whole room. I never had daughters so it is so much fun to see little girl's rooms. The teepee is a great idea for play.
