DIY Teepee

6 Materials
1 Hour

The new craze is a teepee party. It’s so lovely and looks super fun. Hiring a teepee company? Not so fun! It’s so expensive. So, I decided to do it myself and did it for around £35

This was the finished result. I was absolutely over the moon

I used 8 bamboo canes (I got 10 for 60p in Wilko) and 2 white shower curtains

For the beds I used my sons cotbed mattress and I had a spare one. So they didn’t cost anything. I then pulled the canes together to form a peak and wrapped with string to secure

This video shows you how I brought it all together before styling

I then used flower garlands, lights and chalk boards to dress the teepee and finished off with a tray each for snacks etc

Absolutely over the moon how this turned out! And the girls loved it!

      The shower curtains are wrapped around the bamboo to make the teepees.

      There is a wee video at the top hunny. I just used the holes in the curtain and popped them through the poles. It then draped over and I tied them at the side like curtains x
