DIY TeePee Tree - Fall Decor

DIY Tee Pee Tree

 While decorating our front porch for fall (it's still
a work in progress) I decided the items 
needed a bit of height...

DIY Tee Pee Tree

I pulled a piece of scrap wood from the pile
in the garage that was 8"X19" and I cut two
8"X8" squares using the chop saw. 

The dowels were leftover from a different project, 
so they were sitting in the scrap wood pile too.

Using a 1/4" spade bit and the screwdriver, holes
were easily scraped out, leaving the perfect 
spot for the dowels to cozy up to.
A bit of liquid nails and a touch of white spray paint
and they sat overnight in the garage till time
was on my side....

The tops were strategically pinched together as garden
twine was wrapped around the top and a bit of hot glue was used
to seal the twine in place. Once the teepees were finished, 
a knotted loop of twine was all that was used to hang the
 Natural Grapevine Garland (on sale at A.C.Moore
for $2.50) and the rest was loosely wrapped around
the teepee. 

Simple and inexpensive decor, which
will be fun to add lights to as well.
