Make a Play Tent

11 June 2015 07:58

Now that the better weather is really here, it's time to get out the outdoor toys.  What could be better than a playhouse or tent for the garden?

Have you thought of making your own?  

You can find instructions for this no-sew tepee on The Handmade Home:

This one has been put up indoors and even has lights!

Or what about a tent?

You can find instructions (sort of!) for this play tent on On One Hand:

Or you could push the boat out and design your own!  Maybe roses round the windows?  First floor 'windows' with a cat asleep on the ledge?  A dog (or a dragon) by the front door?  The possibilities are endless.

A play house is a little more difficult, because of the supports.  Making the outer would be fairly straight-forward and, again, there's lots of scope for designing your own.  Has anyone tried making a play house?

As always, you can find inspiration on our Pinterest boards.
