There’s something about sheets hanging from the ceiling that just screams cozy night in. So, this Valentine’s Day create a cozy abode to spend countless hours watching netflix and sipping on tea (or cocktails). We’ll show you the basics to creating a canopy tent of your own.

Materials:

– two top sheets — we used California King–sized

– hula hoop

– safety pins

– fishing line

– firefly lights

– tons of blankets!

– tons of pillows!

First step, pick your favorite spot in the house to set up your cozy oasis. Grab that old hula hoop and your largest set of sheets and let’s begin crafting our fort.

Fold the top edge over the hula hoop and pin together.

Tie three equal-length strands of fishing line to the hula hoop. Spread them out so the hoop sits flat. Then tie to the ceiling. We were lucky enough to have a sturdy pipe to attach our canopy to. If you aren’t so lucky, try using nails or different kinds of Command Strips that are designed for Christmas lights.

Firefly lights are our new favorite obsession. They’re delicate and sparkle beautifully. Deck out your fort with tons and tons of mood-setting lights.

Use pieces of furniture to pull the sheets in different directions. We also tacked our sheets to the surrounding walls to create more space under the canopy.

Use blankets to hide the fact you used random furniture to set up your tent.
