How To DIY Tanya Memme’s DIY Shabby Chic Reading Nook for Kids As Seen On Hallmark’s Home & Family

As a huge fan of Hallmark’s “Home & Family” show, I frequently fall in love with the DIY projects the hosts and contributors create on the show. A few days ago one of my favorite lifestyle contributors Tanya Memme created a beautiful shabby chic reading nook teepee with wood, scrap lace and fabric (and a few other materials) for her four year old daughter, and I thought it’d also be perfect for adults looking to go  “glamping” this summer!

Make a perfect DIY reading nook for under $15

Materials 

Step 1 

Lay out your 6 wooden posts and drill a hole in the center of each about one foot down from the top.

Step 2

Thread the twine through all 6 pieces then place into a tee pee position. You’ll need another person to help. Much easier that way! Keep wrapping over and under until the structure stands stringing its own.

Step 3

Then lay out fabrics, tacks, hammer and glue 

Step 4

Rip fabric into pieces large enough to start wrapping ground the tee pee from post to post securing the fabric with tacks. You can punch them in quite a bit with your hands but a hammer works great too.

Step 5

This piece of fabric was big enough to wrap along a few posts

Step 6

Keep doing the same thing going all the way to the floor on all sides

Step 7

Finish off with trim or fabric gathered to make drapes.
