Project of the Day – Reading Nook for the Tiny Gremlin

I need creative outlets. I crave them.

So today I dyed my hair purple and threw together this reading nook for the Tiny Gremlin’s room.

Ya know, a little of this, a little of that. Maybe a little quarter life crisis thrown in *insert shoulder shrug*.

This was a pretty easy project and I bet you a dollar that you have all the materials at home already. I used the following items to create this tiny piece of magic for baby girl’s room:

This is a pretty quick project and the steps aren’t very difficult. It only took about 15 minutes of our day and was done in time for reading hour!

  1. Remove the staples holding the hula hoop together. If your hoop doesn’t have staples, then cut it. You need your hoop not to be a hoop for a few minutes. Before moving on to the next step, I suggest using the hoop as a giant crab claw or maybe ant pinchers, it’s fun.
  2. Thread your curtains onto the hoop one at a time.
  3. Rejoin the ends of the hoop and use duct tape to secure them. You could probably use superglue instead OR in addition to the tape. Fun tip – this is a good time to pretend to be a giant jelly fish (step inside the hoop, hold the hoop up so that you are surrounded by curtains, and slink around your house).
  4. Cut your string and tie it on opposite ends of the hoop, leaving enough slack so that it can hang on the hook.
  5. Screw your cup hook into the ceiling where your reading nook will be.
  6. Hang your hula-hoop-curtain-reading-nook cover on the cup hook.

We do plan on adding strings of pom poms to the edges of the curtains so I will add an updated photo later.

Let me know if you try this project or if you have any improvements to share πŸ™‚
