Hi guys welcome to Buffy week goodness happy week puppy week I think this should be a yearly thing I think it should – it definitely should maybe and monthly.

Because I love puppies so all week long we were doing puppy themed DIYs on all of our social medias which is really exciting what happened yesterday yesterday on Instagram was a dog toy today on you are getting a see my puppy tents Wednesday on Facebook there are two different dog clothing so cute Thursday is the prize upload back here on our blog so make sure you comment to that rip look Griff flip and Friday we’re going to do our first-ever snapchat DIY tutorial live it’s going to be so cute with puppies so follow us on snapchat they’re all with puppies spoiler alert and, if you are following us on all of our social medias you don’t have to remember the schedule. Because you will just see it alright should we get on to how we made this super cute puppy pen or cat or rabbit bunny turtle and anything to make our puppy tent we’re first going to start by making the canvas cover for this for using this navy and beige stripe thin canvas material from the fabric store from this we’ll need to cut out four triangles draw out a line that is 25 inches long then at the halfway point go up 30 and a half inches and make a mark connect this point to the two edges of the straight line this will give you the triangle size we need the triangle sides should measure about 33 inches long cut out this triangle and repeat three more times until we have four triangles next we need to leave some space at the top of our campus for the sticks to exit we made a mark about 26 inches in up from the bottom and cut slightly above that for seam allowance fold this over and pin the edge as well as the bottom edge so these up to stop the fabric from fraying make sure to repeat this stuff for each piece now it’s time to combine our triangles line up the edges of your first two triangles with the bad sides facing out and pin them together open up the triangle and pin up the next edge with your third triangle repeat this until every side is pinned together and you have a loose pyramid shape so up each side now we need to add in the opening gap both your try and go on half to find the middle and then mark about 18 inches up cut along this line.


But make sure you’re only cutting through one layer of fabric again you’ll want to fold pin and sew these new edges stop them from frame as a final step for a tent cover we need to add on little ties to keep our fabric to the stand using some small bits of white string a few inches long so the middle onto the bottom of each point of the pyramid we also added two closer to the top of the front panel now it’s time to build the wooden structure start by gathering your tent poles we are using four wooden dowels that are 3/8 inch in diameter, and we cut them to be 37 inches tall obviously you’ll need to adjust the scale of this entire project for a larger dog to tie the dowels together we’re going to use the same white string that we use for the tie twine would work just as well. But we like the look of the white against our fabric cut a long amount of string and start by bringing in two of the dowels tie the string to the first dowel with a simple knot next wrap the string around the poles multiple times horizontally make sure you are pulling tightly next bring the string to the top and down through the middle of the two poles gently pull apart the poles to a distance slightly wider than our 25 inch panels and begin to wrap the string vertically between the poles again make sure you’re pulling tightly you’ll know you’ve wrapped enough, when you aren’t able to push your poles together once it’s nice and secure knot off the rope now with our last two poles repeat the first steps by wrapping some string around horizontally and then bring the string down the center and spreading the poles place the two poles on top of your previous two to form a giant X shape now wrap your string around the combine pieces vertically again you should feel it getting tight and it should be hard to push your poles inward once you’re done knot off the rope.

But this time we’re going to keep the extra hanging to use as a finishing touch after bring in your canvas cover and slide it over the poles on top the canvas shape will push the poles together tightly to form a solid structure knot up the ties at the bottom and around the opening lastly we’re taking that extra string and wrapping it around the poles horizontally to give it a clean finish and to hold this final shape in place lastly all you’re going to need are some tent decor pieces of your cubbies choosing and your tent is move-in-ready all right. So that is just one of our puppy DIY this week super cute everybody that saw it was just like I know everybody loved it let us know what pets you have below that you love to put in this tent or send us pics of your pet it loves thank you I just realized that all of these DIYs that we’re doing are pretty much just like mini versions oh my god sighs right exactly yeah so make sure you tuned in to the rest of puppy week again Instagram Facebook two posts on snapchat oh my goodness I think that’s it.
