teepee fun

This post is later than I wanted, but life here has been busy trying to fit in as much Christmas fun as possible and it wouldn't be Christnas if we weren't scrambling to get a gift done at the last minute, all the while celebrating our own Christmas early so we can make our way back to Nebraska road trip style. 
We've been wanting to get a teepee for the last two years, but didn't want to spend a lot of money so we opted for a DIY version.; one that collapses and isn't just wrapped around a bunch of poles.
If you know how to sew this is an easy project. I purchased organic cotton canvas from Fabricworm and it's so soft compared to an inexpensive drop cloth from the home improvement store. Well worth the extra cash since it's going in our playroom to be played with by our babies. We really wanted something they would love and feel good playing with and we couldn’t have asked for it to turn out better. 

To make it more festive we added some dew drop lights, my favorite decor item right now. We did have to adjust the canvas and realign the poles after I took this picture, see how it's a bit wonky. Once we fixed it, everything was good. We added in a cozy blanket and toss pillows to make it the perfect little space for the babes. 
We thought it would be fun to set it up early by the tree, but we're procrastinators and we only made it one day early. However, once it was up we moved our basket of Christmas books inside and the babes played in it all day long!
