1950’s Peter Pan Inspired DIY Teepee

Get excited friends! Jen McDermott’s here to share the DIY Teepee she created using our brand new kit. While this fun play space will no doubt be used again and again for adventure of all kinds over the years, it’s the perfect place for her darling son to spend some quiet reading time over the Thanksgiving break, don’t you think?

 

I have a real treat for you this morning, We R fans! Jen McDermott here, and I am SO EXCITED for you to get a look at the brand new DIY Teepee kit from We R and Crate Paper! (A match made in crafty heaven!)  I had so much fun putting the teepee together and the kit made it super easy.

The poles in the kit come in two pieces, connected by a plastic connector. It took no time at all to put the poles together and slip them through the sleeves.  The fabric is a great weight, and it was easy to tie the cording through the pre-drilled holes in the top. All together, it took about 5 mins from the box to teepee assembly completion.

The kit comes with cute garlands, felt accessories and beads to decorate, as well as some black paint and foam stamps. I was really feeling like turning this into a 1940’s/50’s/Peter Pan kind of  theme, so I grabbed some themed fabric scraps I had laying around and turned them into a tassel garland, using the cording included in the kit.  The colors of the feathers and beads in the kit were perfect for the fabric and vibe. I definitely thought distressed/vintage-inspired navy stars would be perfect for the front of the tent.

My kids are really enjoying using this as a fort/reading tent/”hideout”. It’s a great size for throwing in a few blankets and toys and having a chill morning at home.

I foresee this tent getting LOTS of use in the coming colder months when we’re trying to get creative with our indoor play: this can be a rocketship, a camping tent, a reading/resting space…and I’m sure my kids will think of even more ways to play with it!

How excited are you for this kit? How are you going to decorate yours?? Share with us on our Facebook page, or leave us a comment here!
