Collapsible Glue Gun Teepee


There's no sewing involved! For Joey's 5th birthday, I made him a glue gun teepee with outdoor fabric. We'll use it this summer outside and them move it to the playroom over the winter. This is a perfect escape for my kids. They can eat their popsicles in the shade and there are even fun lanterns for reading in the evening time.

The teepee, although very tall folds up nicely and could easily be stored under a bed or tilting in a closet.
A head-dress - a teepee must have for my little Native Americans!
The beginning of the process. Six 1x2x8 wrapped with rope.
Glue and wrap sections of fabric (I used outdoor fabric) around your poles.
Lightweight, battery operated lanterns hang easily at the top for extra fun in the evenings!

    Thank you ladies! We really love it. I'll keep that "best mom" comment in mind later when I ask my kids, "What show do you want to watch while I work on my blog?" :)
