When we moved, we ditched Peyton’s Lucky Boy Sunday play house (completely sold out and I still get sad when I think about us selling it), and I vowed to get a teepee. Dave was waaaaay against a teepee because they’re huge. He’s right. I have been pinning simple, A-frame tents on Pinterest for months now, and Monday, I finally decided to attempt it.
I used this super easy tutorial to make the frame. First, I went to Home Depot to get all the wood. I had most of the other supplies, but I did need to get a cover for it. I opted for a canvas fabric from Hobby Lobby.
Following the instructions, I used Dave’s drill and 3/4″ spade bit to drill holes 6″ down in each piece of wood.
Follow the steps outlined in the original tutorial here for the tent cover. It would have been easier to use a twin flat sheet, but I had seen a hand stamped tent on tumblr and was convinced I could do it. I used foam board and acrylic paint. I still need to go through and touch up some of the triangles, but Peyton doesn’t mind little details like that! She absolutely loves the tent, and has even requested dinner inside it because it’s a “camp out”.
