Have your kids been asking you for a teepee tent? If you’ve been considering purchasing a teepee tent for your children, you may be wondering about the cost. While teepee tents can be found for purchase in stores, the price can be quite expensive – especially when you consider that children will outgrow the tent in a short amount of time.
One cost-effective solution is to make your own teepee tent! With a few simple materials and some DIY know-how, you can create one tent that will last for years and provide endless hours of fun for your children. Plus, making your own is a great way to bond with your kids and get them involved in the creative process.
Of course, you can build one yourself but not everyone is enthusiastic about the sewing part of making a typical teepee tent!
The teepee tent is a popular choice for kids because it offers a variety of benefits. First, it is a great option for indoor or outdoor use. It is also easy to set up and take down, which makes it a convenient option for busy families. Additionally, the teepee tent provides a fun and safe place for kids to play. You can also choose a large one, enough to accommodate a variety of kids’ activities.
So here’s the easiest way to build one… a no-sew teepee tent! And the bonus is, you can make it as large as you want without having to spend largely as well. 🙂
The beautiful teepee tent featured here is big enough to accommodate three kids at once. Kids can bond and play little games in it. But it’s also a nice place to read (even for adults)!

Is this teepee tent going to be your next project for the kids?
You’ll need these materials:
- 6pcs – 1 x 2 x 8’ Timber
- Jute Rope
- Lots of different Fabrics (scrap or old ones)
- 1-2 Drop Cloths
And these tools:
- Measuring Tape
- Cordless Drill
- Hot Glue Gun
To build the frame of your tent, you will need to attach one end of your timbers together. To do this, use the jute rope and tie it around the end of the timber, about 6-inches from the end. This will help to keep the frame of your tent in place.
There are many ways you can attach the fabric to your teepee tent. You can tuck the fabric and glue the bottom to the timber frame of the tent. You can also wrap the fabric around the frame of the tent until it is fully covered.
However, don’t forget to make way for the entrance of your teepee tent. When attaching the fabric to the frame of the teepee, make sure that you leave enough fabric at the top to create a flap. This flap will be used to close the entrance of the teepee.
