Under an Hour – DIY Kid’s Play Canopy

0 Comment
Thank you to blogger Carrie/ Making Lemonade in Blue Bell, PA for this absolutely fun and easy project. What little girl wouldn’t want a “FROZEN” version of this.
Feeling a bit like MacGuyver, I turned a hula hoop, rope, and two shower curtains into a bright and cheery play canopy tent for my son in under an hour. Starstruck, he declared me a Mom Rockstar for this simple yet impactful DIY! The best part? Finding him snuggled in his tent reading books each morning.

It started with a simple $6 hula hoop. I drilled four holes on opposing sides.

Then I used a large binder ring to gather two shower curtains together.

Back to the hula hop, I threaded four sections of rope through the holes in the hula hoop. I then gathered them in the center and hung the whole thing from the ceiling using anchors. See blog for detailed instructions on this important step!

Looking a little bland…

Loaded in some colorful pillow and books.
