How to Make a No-Sew Teepee

Take some poles, old fabric scraps, and some rope to create this awesome no-sew teepee perfect for the kids!
Start by taking six long poles and drill a small hole about 6 inches the top of the pole and 1 inch from the bottom. Gather all your poles together and feed jute through the top holes and wrap it around to hold the top together. Feed jute through the bottom holes and tie off at each end leaving an opening for the door.
Gather old fabric scraps you have and rip them into long strips about 5-6 inches wide. Don't worry if some are shorter than others.
Now start weaving your fabric around the top of the structure to keep it secure.
For the main structure, start on one end and weave your fabric in and out between the poles. Be sure to leave a space for the opening. Dab with hot glue every foot or so to secure it all.
Tie off on the ends and you're done!

    Would this work for an indoor teepee as well? I've been looking for a tutorial to make my son a playroom teepee and I love this one and how simple it it.

      You'd also want to make sure everything was sanded well, to avoid slivers. I think it would be fun indoors!
