I had a few comments after posting my homemade teepee on instagram that I decided it would be good to post a DIY guide for you. Honestly it’s the simplest thing in the world! So let’s dive in – how to make a DIY teepee with 4 everyday items!
4 Everyday Items
The 4 everyday items you will need for this DIY teepee are:
– at least 3 bamboo sticks
– 1 or more large blankets
– clothing pegs or ideally towel pegs
– 1 hair tie
No need for any tools, no drills, no glue guns, no hammers, nada, NOTHING!
1) Stick your bamboo sticks into the ground at enough of an angle that the tops meet mid air. In the single man teepee 3 sticks will be enough and you should arrange them in a pyramid sort of arrangement
2) Tie the top of the bamboo sticks with the hair tie
3) Drape the blanket around the bamboo sticks and use the pegs to secure the blankets.
And tah-dah your very own DIY teepee! That’s it…. easy as 1,2,3!
Simples DIT Teepee
This version of the teepee is the simplest one. I made a later one at the weekend using six bamboo sticks, two Ikea blankets and so many pegs! I must admit the bigger version is better. Also, fold an extra blanket serves as a good carpet for the inside of the DIY teepee if the ground is a bit damp.
After a morning swimming we spent the afternoon alternating between the sofa and outside. Much arguments over suncream but eventually managed to get some on both. A makeshift play tent on a freshly mowed lawn was fun for a while but food became a priority so retreat to the kitchen. This is now the aftermath. #happydaysofsummer #sunshineandsmiles #gardenplaytime #wigwams #megsypoo
