DIY Slumber Party Tee Pee - step-by-step tutorial on how to make an easy, no-sew tee pee for a birthday party or child's bedroom or playroom decor! by BirdsParty.com @BirdsParty

Did you see the cute teepee we built for my daughter's unicorn themed slumber birthday party? Well, today we're sharing the easy DIY steps!

I say we because I had a lots of help from my dear husband, who's very handy with a saw and drill. We brainstormed ideas about the tee pee design, and he basically built the thing for me!

I made a quick video to help explain the steps, plus a printable building plan (IKEA style) that you can use to help you out, though it's pretty straight forward! 😉

This cute teepee was used as a cozy lounge area for the girls during the slumber party, but you could totally attach it to the wall permanently in a child's playroom or bedroom as decor!

I loved decorating the teepee with fluffy cushions, and pretty party decorations to mach our unicorn slumber party birthday theme. But I'm sure we could easily decorate the teepee to match a camping party theme for instance, or a boho-chic bridal shower decor, right?!

Directions:

2) Measure how wide you want your tee pee to be. Then drill 2 small holes onto each base pole and screw them to feet of 2 side poles.

3) Bolt the 2 side poles together and tighten with a spanner.

4)  Measure and cut top pole, then add curtain panels.

5) Decorate to your heart's content with pretty honeycomb balls from BirdsParty.fr!
