If you loved our post about the awesome backyard tent made out of a sheet
, but you don't have any trees handy for suspending your own tent, consider this excellent DIY we spotted at Ready Made, which shows how to make a simple but sturdy tent frame and cover. As an added bonus, this lightweight frame lets you relocate your play tent around the yard (avoiding the dreaded brown patches of death on your lawn) or even bring the tent indoors.
See the post at Ready Made for step-by-step instructions.
