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 "got into" the new tradition hehe

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.
