Hula-hoop playtent

What little girl doesn’t want a castle? Now there is an inexpensive way for parents to provide a single or double castle/play tent.

Here is a single tent option

Click here for how to make this single hula hoop castle. There are great step by step instructions (with photo’s) and she even uses an old umbrella for the castle top!

My friend Rachel kicked it up a notch and doubled the idea creating this beauty:

Her girls LOVE the play tent. She used fabric, bed sheets, and two hula hoops. Instead of threading the hoops through a pocket she stitched on ties. What a great idea. I think a combination of the two patterns result in a  pretty easy project. I love the idea of using the old umbrella for the topper in the first pattern and the ties in the second picture. Does anyone else think this could make a great Christmas gift?
