I have wanted to make a teepee for the Loreli for a while now and finally got around to it! Thank goodness for naps, right? I didn't embellish much because...well...that would have taken more time. One day when Loreli doesn't just scribble all over and won't eat paints we can spend a day outside painting it. Until then it's plain ole boring canvas! I do wonder why I continue to make her things since she doesn't get too excited about them and I've come to the conclusion that I really make them for me. I would have loved a teepee like this when I was a kid! Who knows, maybe she'll appreciate it more as she gets older.

In case anyone is curious...I found the tutorial at Smile and Wave, bought one 9' x 12' drop cloth for $15, bought two rolls of 7/8" grosgrain ribbon for $4, and we already had some eight foot 2 x 4's that Shea cut to make the poles. Totaling to $19 and only 4 hours between naptime and bedtime! Woot!
