This year instead of cutting down a tree we began working on a new holiday tradition.

Step 1: Cutting the Canvass

I purchased a strip of canvass 8 feet wide and 6 yards long. I laid it out on the floor and a friend and I drew a half circle 16ft in diameter.  We then folded fabric in half and cut out an egg shaped doorway (half from each side). I folded the circle one last time and cut off the point (to make space for the polls to cross). The image below shows my intended design which I deviated from slightly just to make layout as easy as possible.
Looks amazing!
It looks like the kids really &quot;got into&quot; the new tradition hehe <br> <br>Is Santa going to hide presents for the good little boys and girls inside the fort or around the outside?
We hid the gifts inside.
