Bunk Bed Tents

Bunk Bed Tents
We made these fun little tents for my 3 boys last Christmas. They were fairly easy to make... especially the middle one. I just measured the space, made a flat rectangle (with a vinyl window), and added velcro tabs to the top where it attaches to the bed. Although it wasn't difficult, it WAS time consuming because of the measuring and planning. But I have to say, these were well worth the time. My boys keep them up 24/7! They tend to go to bed with less resistance for me, too. The love each having their own little private space, which is hard to give them when you have 3 sharing a room. They read with their book lights every night. They love it... and so do I!

I need to know how you did the top bunk tent as well. How did you secure it to bed and is it just 2 pvc arches with fabric or is there more to it. IS a brace neccessary to keep the tent from sagging in the center? I know this is an old post but any tips would be appreciated! :)
