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.

Pull Canes Together

For the beds I used my sons cotbed mattress. 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

      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
