DIY: teepee.

I love my kitty cat but also my home and I cound’t stand anymore all this paper boxes where she loves to sleep in so I decided to change this. I crafted a pet teepee.

There is not much you need to build a teepee and it just looks so pretty between all the plants. I actually would love to have a teepee for myself.

Here is what you need:

  • 5 branches or wooden slats
  • fabric, I used an old pillow case
  • yarn and a sewing needle
  • robe
  • scissors

I just went out and collected some branches. Don’t destroy your countryside and all the plants, just collect branches from the ground which are not to old. Or go into a local store and buy some wooden slats. I used five.

Hold them up and knot them together at the height how tall you want your pets teepee to stand up. Get your fabric. I used an old pillow case. I cut off one corner of the case and stuck it over the wooden branches and fixed everything with yarn using a sewing needle. Next get scissors and cut a little hole into the fabric where you want to have the entrence for your pet. Remember: you can always cut the hole bigger but you can not fix it that easy. So start with cutting a small hole and make it bigger later on if you want. And now my pet teepee was done. The last thing was to put in some pillows, a blanket or the loved paper box. Now you only need your cat or dog or bunny to go into it.

I hope you and your pet will enjoy the teepee as much as we do.

Sending some love,

    I love this! I have boxes everywhere. As soon as a package comes in, they are scrambling to get inside. A teepee sounds awesome. I made one for my kids years back, but that was before I had cats. Haha. I may need to make another. Your looks fantastic! Have a wonderful weekend!
