In this article I am going to tell you how to make a tent using a blanket, So read this article carefully.

To make a tent with a blanket, you need to decide how big you want your tent. The bigger the size of the veil, the bigger the base of the tent will be,

For example: if you use one double-sized blanket for making a tent, then it will be a small size tent while using two single blankets for making the tent, the base of the tent will be more significant.

After deciding how big you want to make your tent, next is to find two supports; poles or trees for holding up the blanket and tents on them.

You can also use other things available in nature as support instead of using poles and trees because if you are making a tent in nature, you can search for many general things and use them as support.

Steps On How To Make A Tent With A Blanket

STEP 1

Take a blanket and fold it down from one corner to the size of your required base. In this way, you will get a half square triangle blanket.

Fold again the same corner ( which you have folded in the first step ) to another side so that now you have four layers of the blanket instead of two like at the first step.

Now fold it one more time from top to bottom, and thus now you will get the shape of your tent.

STEP 2

Attach two corners of this blanket with two supports that you have found or with poles/trees and attach it tightly to make a tent-like structure. Then attach another blanket in the same way as you attached the first one for making the roof of your tent.  

For attaching blankets with two supports, you can use any fastener.

You can also use safety pins to make this blanket tied tightly. This is the best way to make a tent with a blanket.

Make support for your tent so that it will not fall down. If you have decided to use safety pins, then attach them tightly or if you want to get stronger support, then use some other fasteners to make your tent more stable and strong.

STEP 3

You should also make an entryway door in the blanket, which is over your support if you want to have an entrance door for your tent like I have made. 

I made it by folding one corner of the blanket and then attached two supports to make a door in my tent.

STEP 4

After that, decorate your tent with colourful things like pillows, toys, LED lights or as you want. These are some tips you can see on the internet or in my next article. Till then make your tent with these tips and enjoy it a lot. See you soon.
