Every child loves to build different huts and shelters. After all, this is a kind of secluded place where you can play, read books or have fun with friends. Moreover, some even prefer to sleep there. In addition, this design perfectly complements the interior of the children's room and living room. Therefore, we propose to make a beautiful, original wigwam with your own hands.

We are starting to create a wigwam frame. You can collect all the bars together and connect them, as shown in the diagram. Then you need to arrange them with the same interval.

We raise bars as wide as possible, forming a cone. Several times we wind the top of the frame with a rope.

Getting to the formation of a canopy. To do this, fold the fabric as shown in the diagram.

Gently cut out the fabric according to the scheme and cut off the unnecessary parts.

We wrap the frame with the fabric with the wrong side out. We connect the ends with pins and mark the places where the fabric comes into contact with each stick. We remove the fabric and sew ribbons or pieces of twine from the seamy side on the marks.

Getting to the processing edge. To do this, bend it twice and sew. If desired, you can iron. But you can skip this step if you want to add a touch of carelessness to the design.

Attach the grommets along the edges of the fabric and just lace them with a tape or a long lace.

We cover the wigwam with a cloth, fasten the top and slightly fold back the fabric to make the doors. Inside we put a fluffy rug and pillows. If desired, you can add another additional decor.
