mini teepee

Growing up, my sisters and I were always making forts out of the furniture in the house. Throwing blankets over everything, creating tunnels and letting our imaginations go crazy!
While that is still quite fun to do, lately it seems like having an actual tent/fort in your house, is that much more FAB!
I have been seeing teepee's all over the place lately!
While my first thought was "I want one of those", I knew my munchkins would love one!! 
I have been trying to get their room to that stage of being complete, so why not put a mini teepee for their reading area! 
Genius, I know!
With some help from my Hubby, we made this little creation come to life! And since their room isn't huge, we made this half the size, hence Mini Teepee.
The munchkins love it! I put it together while Lil Man was napping, he had the BIGGEST smile after waking up and seeing it set up. That right there is exactly why I love making my kids fun things, seeing their face light up with such joy is the best response ever!!

|| Here are a few tutorials that I used for Inspiration ||
& if you are looking for a tent, Ashley at Chevron Stitches has a super cute one!!
