Yes, my friends, another DIY is here! I have been eyeing these kinds of teepees on Pinterest for years, and when one of my friends contacted me about doing a boho maternity shoot, I was ecstatic. Not only did I get to catch up with a friend from high school, but it gave me the perfect excuse to finally make a fun teepee prop. And let’s just say I have nothing buy heart eyes for this bad boy.
It’s got everything, from lace and tulle to flowers and greenery. It was THE perfect prop for the maternity shoot, and I know it will continue making an appearance in shoots to come. I’m thinking newborn pictures, mommy & me minis, and maybe some fun 1 year old shoots. What do y’all think??
My favorite part about this teepee is the lace. While looking for the fabric I wanted to use for the covering, I stumbled upon the same exact lace that my great aunt used to make my wedding dress! The same color, pattern and everything. I couldn’t help but smile at the awesome coincidence, and didn’t think twice about buying it. I loved how the lace made the teepee even more special, and it helped keep the boho look going strong!
From start to finish, this teepee took me under and hour to make. Once I got all the materials, it was all a matter of putting it together and having fun placing the flowers where I wanted them to go. I know that if I ever have a baby girl, this is definitely going in her room! I think it’d make such a fun reading nook or place to play.
3 dowel rods (I got 5 feet tall and 3/4 inch diameter)
2 1/2 yards tulle
1 1/2 yards lace
Fake flowers and greenery
1. Open the rods into a pyramid shape, then tie them together with the twine so they can stand on their own! You may need to move the rods up and down a little in the twine until they sit right.
2. Unfold the tulle and drape it over the rods. Center the tulle on the rods, and cut two small holes to fit over the left and right side rods. Unfold the lace and drape it over the rods. Center the lace on the rods, and cut a small hole to fit over the middle rod.
3. Drape the tulle and lace however you want it on the rods, and secure the lace and tulle to the dowel rods with greenery wire.
4. Now this is the fun part! Place the flowers and greenery on the teepee until you get it looking right. First drape the greenery across the top and wrap it around the teepee. Secure some of the ends to the dowel rods. Then attached the flowers to the greenery with the wire.
5. And you’re done! To store, you can just fold the legs in and put it in a dry, safe spot.

This would be a great birthday party idea and theme for a little girls party.
I agree!! It can be used for so many things, and that’s one of the reasons I love it so much!
Oh my goodness, this is soooo cute! I need to host an event or something where I can make one of these. LOVE!!
Thank you!! And girl, I KNOW. I’m like “You’re hosting a party? Cool… can I bring my teepee with me?” hahaha ;)
I love this!! Teepee’s are so expensive to buy and I would love one for my little girl. Definitely going to try this!
Thank Leah!! And I KNOW! That’s why I made one in the first place haha. You should give it a try- it’s so easy to make!
Wow, my daughter would want to live in this! And how special that you found that same lace?!? Thanks so much for sharing!
If I had had this when I was little, I know I would have been ALL over it! And isn’t that cool? It makes the teepee even more special to me.
This is gorgeous. My daughter was just admiring a teepee at target the other day. She would love it if I made her one!
Thank you! And you should!! It’s so much cheaper to make one than buy one, and I’m sure she’d love helping you out too. <3
This is so super cute! And it looks way easier than I expected!
Girl, I know!! It was SO easy to make and assemble (which is my kind of DIY!).
This is gorgeous and so unique too! My favorite part is the lace!
Thanks!! I love the lace too, especially since it’s the same lace my wedding dress was made out of :D
OMG this is perfection! I like it more than the ones you find in stores actually!! Such a great idea!
Awww thank you SO much! That is so sweet of you to say. I love how it turned out- and who knew it’d be so easy?!
This is so stinkin’ cute! I would do this just to spend a day in the backyard LOL
Oh if I had a backyard, I would TOTALLY bring it outside with me! I hope to have a baby girl someday and use it to decorate her bedroom. ;)
Gorgeous! If you hadn’t done step-by-step instructions I wouldn’t have believed it was that easy to create.
Thank you! And I know, right?! I never thought a teepee would be so easy to make, but it really is!
