DIY Boho Chic Teepee

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??

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.

DIY Boho Chic TeePee

Materials:
3 dowel rods (I got 5 feet tall and 3/4 inch diameter)
Twine
Greenery wire
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. 

Unfold the lace and drape it over the rods. Center the lace on the rods, and cut two small holes to fit over the left and right side rods. 

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. 

Unfold the lace and drape it over the rods. Center the lace on the rods, and cut two small holes to fit over the left and right side rods. 

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.
