Prep

Prepare perfect party decor.

Materials

  • 3 yards of fabric
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • 1 roll of Stitch Witchery or a glue gun with an extension cord
  • Drill with 3/4″ bit
  • 4 1″x1.5″x48″ pieces of wood boards
  • 3 3/4″ width 48″ length wooden dowels

Directions

Frame Prep Instructions:
  1. On each of the boards, measure 6 inches down and mark in the center.
  2. Drill a 3/4″ hole at this mark on all four boards.
  3. Flip the boards over to the other end and measure 1.5 inches up from the bottom.
  4. Drill a 3/4″ hole at this mark on all four boards.
Frame Assembly Instructions:
  1. Place the dowels through the drilled holes on the the boards to create “A” shape.
  2. Make sure the board side with the holes 1/2″ from the bottom face the bottom of the frame.
  3. If you have trouble squeezing the dowel through the holes, take a piece of sandpaper and smooth out the inside of the holes.
  4. Once the fabric cover is complete, place bottom dowels through both pockets. Fabric should be draped over top dowel.
Fabric Prep Instructions:
  1. Trim your fabric to be 44″ in width.
  2. Using Stitch Witchery and your Iron, “hem” the rough edge of the fabric
  3. Make the first pocket for the dowel by folding the top of the fabric width-wise over to create a pocket 3 inches in width. Use your Stitch Witchery and iron to enclose the pocket.
  4. Slide the pocket through the appropriate bottom dowel on your frame. Pull the fabric tightly over the top dowel down to the other bottom dowel. Measure where the next pocket will need to be adhered together to create a 3″ pocket.
  5. Take off the fabric cover and Stitch Witchery the next 2nd pocket.

Note: The total assembly time takes about 2.5 hours. Taking the tent apart and putting it together is simple and makes for easy storage.

Styling tips

Deets & Things shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

We recommend doing your DIY projects a few a days before the party so that you have less to do closer to the party.

Tip 2

Find vintage books and vintage coolers related to the camping theme from eBay or Etsy to give your party a finished look.

Tip 3

Custom party decor like cake toppers and cocktail napkins are always a fun idea!

Tip 4

Display fun sayings on light boxes or letter boards like “Campers Gonna Camp” and “There’s No Place Like Camp”.

Tip 5

Use natural elements such as pinecones, branches, and leaves to decorate on a budget.
