What You’ll Need

  • Drill
  • 1/2” drill bit
  • 4 (1/2-inch wide x 4′ long) wooden boards
  • 3 (1/2-inch wide x 5′ long) wooden dowels
  • 2 yards Winnie the Pooh fabric
  • Super glue
  • Brown paint
  • Paintbrush
  • 10” balsa wood board
  • 8” rope
  • Scissors
  • Fake foliage

How To Make It

  1. Drill 4 holes into your 4 boards—2 holes should be 2 inches from the end of the boards and 2 should be 4 inches from the other end of the boards.
  2. Push the wooden dowels into the holes in the boards, 1 should connect the top of your tent, and 2 should connect the bottom.
  3. Drape the fabric over the top of the wooden dowel.
  4. Glue the fabric onto the bottom 2 wooden dowels, by applying glue to the dowel and wrapping the fabric around it. Let the glue dry.
  5. Paint “100 ACRE WOOD” onto your balsa wood (for an extra Winnie the Pooh touch, paint the “R” backwards).
  6. Once the paint has dried, glue rope onto the back of the sign.
  7. Drape foliage onto the front and back of the tent.
  8. Hang the sign on the front of the tent.

Notes

All cutting, drilling, and gluing should be done by an adult.
