Snow Day Blanket Fort

A few months ago on a chilly snow day, Markie came over and we made ourselves a cozy blanket fort. blanket fort with string lights We used twine to string between a bay window in my bedroom to several pieces of furniture, then draped a big white (super wrinkly - too lazy to iron!) sheet across it.

A futon pad fit pretty perfectly into the space, and then we stripped the bed of it's comforter and pillows.

We all piled in together.

And just plain hanging out.

Plus forts are the perfect time to hang out with your sister.

We used these string lights which have a ton of light settings and were a lot brighter than I was expecting.

A clip stolen from the kitchen held the center together.
