Giggles and Glue Guns

Summer Bohemian Fort

Okay, I could probably live in this thing. If I were a fairy….who didn’t require indoor plumbing and cable.

What a great and easy DIY to do in a backyard or maybe a park, or even a kid’s room!!!

What You’ll Need:

  • Lightweight sheets and blankets for the tent (the more patterns the better)
  • Pillows and thicker blankets or mats for the ground (maybe a tarp for moist ground)
  • A long strong rope or twine
  • Clothes pins

Do It:

  • Tie the rope securely between two trees or poles or cars!
  • Drape all your lightweight fabric over the rope to create a tent
  • Keep the fabric in place and attached to each other with clothes pins
  • Lay your thick blankets over the tarp on the ground and accent with pillows for comfort

Then just mix up some lemonade and watch the fireflies…ahhhh.

    There is no doubt that I’m going to do this at the beach. I’ll just grab two large sticks or something to replace the trees….Anywho, I appreciate your guide to make an awesomysitcal fort. I’m sure others appreciate it as well.

    of course like your web site but you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth then again I will surely come back again.
