This no-sew teepee can be set up on a porch, living room floor or in a meadow for all kinds of dreamy summer activities, from reading to playing games to hosting a starry slumber party. You determine how big it will be with the size dropcloth you use and the height of the bamboo poles – and then truly make it your own with simple stamps and decorations.
