A DIY Tent

The dog days are starting…no doubt about it. After a smothering hot Father’s Day in New York, there is no denying that today is the first day of summer. And summer = vacation, and vacation = camp, and camp = tents. Here are few you can easily make on your own, for your very own backyard (or fire escape).


This is a more bohemian tent, one where you’d sip jasmine tea, rather than rest your body after a long day’s hike. Styled by Danny Seo for Parents Magazine. The green fabric are these curtain panels from PB Teen.


I love this traditional-style tent DIY fabric pup tent. Get the instructions at Readymade.


Ok, this one is a little O.T.T., but check out the amazing details (like the nook at the top for dolls and the removable flowers on the side) at Ikat Bag.

Happy First Day of Summer everyone!

PS…I’m sorry for my absence last week. Family in town + work duties + 6 months of pregnancy left me too exhausted to think. But I’m back; I promise!
