9 Steps to Make an Indoor Tent with Sheets

  • At first, you have to stick the wall hooks to the preferable position on the wall. If you want to make your tent long, then I will recommend setting your hooks bit up on the wall.
  • After setting up your hooks, figure out the space for your tent, so that you set bed, chair, or couch. Place the chairs to the edges of your tent. After that, put your comforter or sleeping bag at the blank space which is surrounded by chairs.
  • Tie up the broomstick with a chair. After fitting the broomstick with a chair, pair the umbrella with the upside of the stick, then place the chair at the middle place whether the place is surrounded by chairs what I have described above.
  • In this step, you will put a sheet on the umbrella. But one thing you have to keep in your mind that, the hook position will be at the lower side from the broomstick so that the roof of the tent will be bit curvy. This upside-down position will make the tent more beautiful

Now pull your sheet unto the right-side area and tie the corner of the sheet by rubber band to hang up the sheet with wall hooks. Do the same on the rest of the side. Now you can see that your tent has come into a shape.

  • Stand some small stick inside the tent, so that it will become stronger and reduce the pressure on hooks.
  • Now you can put the other three sheets on other sides and the backside of the main entrance of the tent. At this stage, you have to use clothespins or safety pins to attach them.
  • Check that; you follow the above steps. If such, then you have completed the exterior design of the tent. Now you have to focus on the interior design.

Fetch your pillows and cushions inside the tent and put it in the back corner of your tent.

  • Now it’s time to set up the Christmas light in your tent. At first, connect the cord of Christmas light in the plug, then set the Christmas light at the upper end of the umbrella pole. If you can, later try to put the wire of Christmas light in a round shape. It will generate a colorful reflection of light. Try to keep the canopy of the umbrella colorful.
  • You can put flower vase, candle, books, and other stuff to make a beautiful interior.
