DIY Play Tent

Obsessively Stitching is having a tent week.  A full week of do it yourself play tents, and they are only on day two!!

The first is a tutorial for these cute card table tents at Old Days Old Ways:



And day two is this cute dome tent made from hula hoops and a king size bed sheet:



I love that it looks like a baseball hat.  If you painted the hula hoops the same color s the fabric it would fit in perfectly in a baseball themed room.

You can check out tent week HERE.

OK, hula hoops and a king size sheet? That's AMAZING!! How cute is the baseball hat theme, too? So creative!

Really clever and cute. Beats the sheet thrown over the card-table approach I used to use!

No, no no! please do not give me any ideas that I just have to do for my grandkids!

At Christmas one year, we set up a table for the villages, with a white sheet draped over. My 3-yr-old GD saw that and decided instantly that her loving grandma was building a house for her!

so much for storing the boxes underneath, but it became a welcome retreat for my 16-year-old son as well! Who would have guessed?
