Become a Rockstar in Under an Hour (DIY Kid's Play Canopy)

3 materials
Feeling a bit like MacGuyver, I turned a hula hoop, rope, and two shower curtains into a bright and cheery play canopy tent for my son in under an hour. Starstruck, he declared me a Mom Rockstar for this simple yet impactful DIY! The best part? Finding him snuggled in his tent reading books each morning.
It started with a simple $6 hula hoop. I drilled four holes on opposing sides.
Then I used a large binder ring to gather two shower curtains together.
Back to the hula hop, I threaded four sections of rope through the holes in the hula hoop. I then gathered them in the center and hung the whole thing from the ceiling using anchors. See blog for detailed instructions on this important step!
Looking a little bland...
... so I added yellow felt pennants! Super easy to make!
Loaded in some colorful pillow and books.
Here's the final project and it truly took less than an hour. My son LOVES it! Be sure to check out the blog for detailed step-by-step instructions and smiling photos of the recipient!
