Okay, I’m fairly certain this is meant for kids, but I am a huge fan of grown-ups getting in on the fun, too. The link below will lead you to instructions on how to create your own A-frame tent.

a fellow fp girl sent this to me a couple weeks back and i’ve been thinking about it ever since! i can think of a million reasons why these would be awesome… as apartment décor, as outdoor party décor, and – wouldn’t they be the best thing EVER for camping in general or at a festival? just let them sit in the sun all day, and they’ll last all night! i am absolutely going to make some to bring with me to bonnaroo this year.
