What can be better than surprising your tot with a homemade teepee? In this instructable, I'll show you how I made a whimsical teepee using some fabric, 4 dowels, and creativity. Did I mention there is zero sewing involved?
Let's get started!
Step 1: Materials
For this project I used:
2.5 yards of white and gold polka dot cotton fabric
1 yard of polka dot mesh fabric (I used this so that when cut, it would not fray. Did I mention this is a no-sew project??)
4 dowels (I opted for 6 foot long dowels found in the molding department of lowes, rather than the typical 4 foot dowels so that the entire teepee would have more square footage inside)
6 yards of white 3/4 inch ribbon
2.5 yards of 1/2 inch sisal rope
zip tie (totally optional)
staple gun (with plenty of light duty staples)
hot glue gun (with about 4 long sticks of glue)
**I also made a tassel banner that went around the teepee, but I didn't take any pictures of that process.
