‘I thought I would share my little Kmart hack from our daughter’s slumber party in the hope that some of you can use the idea too!’ she wrote.
‘After pricing the cost of hiring or buying teepees and inflatable mattresses, I decided to give this a go.’
The woman already owned a number of the items used in her project, including an outdoor gazebo frame and LED fairy lights which she usually puts on her Christmas tree.
After spending $32 on 16 Kmart plastic table covers, the innovative mum explained she used 12 blue table covers and four pink to line the outside of the gazebo.
The result was a beautiful canopy covering a cosy space for the children to play and watch movies
‘I put eight blue sheets on the roof, bunched together with a rubber and ribbon at the centre of the roof frame. Then I draped the remaining material out to each side of the frame,’ she explained.
The result was a beautiful canopy covering a cosy space for the children to play and watch movies.
She described the joy of her daughter and friends camping out together as ‘priceless’.
