DIY Kids Tent
- Hula hoop (I got mine from dollar tree for $1 they had different sizes. I got the biggest one they had)
- Stitch witchery (I got it at Walmart in the sewing isle for around $ 2.50)
- Fabric you could also use curtains/sheets (I got the fabric from walmart the blue & green fabric was $2 per yard & the avengers fabric was I believe $ 4.54 per yard. I got 2 yards of each fabric (There was a lot of really cute marked down/clearance fabric as low as $1 per yard.
- Ribbon (hanging up)
- Command hook
For ours I did alternating stripes. I just cut the fabric in half length wise. Hem the sides together again using the stitch witchery. Continue all the way round. * Leave the last two ends open*
Slide the fabric onto the hula hoop and secure the hula hoop together again. If you want to make it look more put together you can wrap and glue ribbon around the part of the hula hoop that is exposed when the fabric is pushed open.
Take some thicker ribbon and tie 4 pieces evenly on to the hula hoop. Take the ends together and make a knot/loop at the top.
That's it! Pretty easy there's so many possibilities you can do with this. You could use it as a canopy of your kids bed, put in a corner as a reading "hangout" area. It would be really cute with strings of light strung across the top of the hula hoop for night time as well. If you use sheer fabric for girls you could attach some pretty flowers to.
Sorry this isn't the best tutorial but hopefully you get the idea and it helps you if you decide to make your own : )
