Today's master class will teach parents how to build a nice Indian wigwam with their own hands, which will decorate the children's room and serve as a wonderful decoration for games. Having spent a little time and effort on making this miracle tent, you will certainly be rewarded with a happy smile on the child's face. You will need:

  • 6 strong wooden branches about 2 m long (they can be replaced by wooden slats purchased in the building materials store);
  • A piece of linen cloth about 2.7 x 3.7 m in size (it is advisable to use artistic canvas);
  • Through metal rivets of large diameter (not less than 12 pieces);
  • twine;
  • Leather rope;
  • Tools: scissors handle, measuring tape, straight ruler, drill, hammer, iron, textile hot glue.

We proceed. Measure from one end of each branch about 30 centimeters. Make a note and drill a through hole with a drill. Pass the twine through all the holes and tie the knot. Initially, the fixation will be weak. Do not worry, it should be so. Arrange the branches so that you haveFrame, corresponding in form to the Indian wigwam. Wrap the remainder of the twine around their intersection to cover the holes and securely fix the structure. Fold the cut fabric in half. Measure out 15 centimeters from the corner with a crease, draw a smooth arc, as shown in the photo, and cut it. Wrap the fabric around the frame so that the carved semicircle is at the top of the structure. Pull the fabric and mark the point near the bottom of each branch where you would like to fix the length. Remove the fabric and connect all the marks with the handle and ruler. You will receive a broken line, along which you will be cutting the fabric. Use scissors to cut off excess fabric. Bend the edges of the fabric from the side of the future entrance to the wigwam and use a textile hot melt and an iron to "cut" the canvas. Once again, put the fabric on the frame. Make sure the length is correct, and make notes in the places where you plan to use riveted rivets. To the wigwam had an attractive appearance, they should be no less than 6 pieces on each side. The distance between rivets should be approximately the same both vertically and horizontally. Install rivets with a hammer orPliers. Then pass the prepared leather rope through the holes crosswise - as shown in the photo. Lace up from the bottom (thus the end of the rope will not be visible). Tighten the lacing so that the fabric fits tightly around the frame. Now you only need to call the child and enjoy his genuine joy at the sight of his own room wigwam. http://themerrythought.com
