I’ve always always wanted one of these when I was little, and I was excited to find out that my boys were into the whole cowboy and indian thing! Giving me the perfect excuse to make a teepee! Now, it took my a while to figure out but now looking back it is SO simple and easy to do. Because the teepee is very large I had to illustrate it instead of showing you guys through pictures. I love how it turned out and it would make a perfect gift and play tent for your the little ones in your life (xmas may have come just a little early for these too).
6 wood poles of some kind about 6.5 feet to 7 feet long (mine were 6.5′) – I bought mine from lowes for $0.37 a piece.
At least 5 1/4 yard heavy cotton – $15 all together
at least 6 feet of cording (there are fun colorful ones at the hardware store)
optional – paint, brush, painter’s tape
