    My husband created the frame out of wood and I sewed the scalloped tent. It was easier than I thought to create, only took one night to make everything. I'm sorry, I didn't have a tutorial/how to. Honestly, when we made it, I wasn't sure how it work until it was complete, so I couldn't take any pictures of the process.

    These are Starbucks Frappuccino drink jars. You can purchase them in 12 packs, just wash and peel off the labels when you're done!

    Thanks, yeah I did. My husband created the framework out of wood and I sewed the scalloped tent. It worked out better than we thought it would.
