Craft Warehouse - Glamping DIY Photo Booth TentTuesday, July 22, 2014
It has been three weeks since my daughter had her birthday party and this photo tent is still hanging up in my backyard. I love it so much I don't want to take it down! It was such a simple project that I had to share it with you!
I picked a fabric that was neutral so that when it was hanging the wrong side of the fabric wouldn't take away from the look of the tent. This fabric is from the Winter Wonderland by Bunny Hill for Moda Fabrics collection, available at Craft Warehouse stores.
Two panels of 92 inches long of fabric
1 10 inch Embroidery Hoop (remove the outer part of the hoop and save for another project)
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
String or Ribbon
Cardboard Pieces and Large Long Nails
Directions: (*Note: this project is easier with two people. Try not to burn your helper with the glue gun like I did - so sorry Becca!)
1. Mark your hoop with a pencil at equal parts around the hoop. (at the middle of the top, middle of the bottom, at quarters, and sixths)
2. Iron your fabric. Take one short end of one panel (with right sides facing out) and hot glue it to the outside of the hoop at the middle mark. Glue the other end to the other end of the middle mark. Glue the middle of the fabric at the middle of that half. Start pleating the fabric and gluing it so the entire fabric's edge is covering the one half of the hoop.
3. Repeat with the second panel on the second half of the hoop.
4. Take twine and hang it from the top of the hoop and tie it to a tree branch.
5. To help the bottom stay in the ground without ripping the fabric, create cardboard washers by folding the edge of the fabric around a small piece of cardboard and placing it to the ground. Use a long nail and hammer the fabric to the ground. Repeat on all four sides.

Create Well: If you ever want your helpers to help you again, try not to burn them with the hot glue gun. (Just sayin').
