A DIY Teepee Reading Tent & A Woodland Themed Toddler Room

54,461 Views
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!

    LOVE IT! I nearly fell off my chair laughing. A chandelier hanging above a tepee! Not just any old chandelier, but one with CRYSTAL bobbles! ADORABLE!
