Simple Bed Sheet Tent

Simple Backyard Bed Sheet Tent | Mama.Papa.Bubba.

As a girl, I adored spending time in special little forts and hideaways, and now I love creating similar spaces for Miss G to cozy up in.  Though we’re huge fans of our super simple backyard teepee, this summer we decided to try something new – a simple triangular tent created using only a few things from around the house.

Besides choosing our gorgeous floral sheet {a wedding gift her grandma and grandpa received 40 years ago!}, Grae also selected all sorts of beautiful items to decorate her special space – a vintage apple crate, a mason jar of wildflowers, a handmade bear, and a stack of books included.

After making our way through all of the books and chatting about all kinds of interesting topics, it was time for a snack.  Of course, a special tent required a special snack, so homemade ice cream with coconut sprinkles in cones it was.

We had such a wonderful afternoon in our tent, and I couldn’t help but head back outdoors later in the evening to capture the tent in the beautiful warm sunlight.
