One of the biggest problems we always had when making forts and tents out of the kitchen and living room chairs was getting our blankets to stay put. Inevitably someone would step on a blanket and pull off whatever was weighing it down. This great "tent hack" solves that and isn't hard to recreate at home....
This tent modification will require two twin flat sheets or 1 queen size sheet. It's a great way to clean out your closet and recycle something old, or hit up your local thrift store for an inexpensive find. This tent removes quickly and easily and folds up for easy storage (we suggest in a pillowcase) and doesn't require anything else to weigh it down while in use.

We think this project has many great possibilities, not just for your own home, but for others as well. It would make a great diy Christmas or birthday present for a friend or family member. Customize a mailbox on the outside with their name and they'll be happy as a clam until they outgrow it!
