Get ready to get into fall!!

Forts are such a cool way to ditch all adult responsibility and slip into childhood. They're just so cozy and seem like the ultimate chill zone!!

If you're obsessed with sanctuaries and relaxing, with either some friends or alone, then these blanket forts would be an amazing idea...

 Follow our instructions for the ultimate blanket forte:

 

What you need:

Furniture and cushions that are already in the room

Pillows, blankets, sheets

Extra chairs

Heavy books

Clothespins

 

What you might need:

Fairy lights, flashlights

Snacks

Portable TV or viewing access to the TV, laptop

Your buddies!

 

Instructions:

1. Start with a large table, couch or any other large piece of furniture — this will be your main structure. 

2. Find the sturdiest cushions (usually the ones off your couch) to extend your structure walls. You can also use dining chairs and face them in or out. If you face them in, the seat becomes a little nook inside the fort, if you face them out, you will be able to hang a sheet over the chair and set books on top of the sheet on the seat of the chair to weigh it down and prevent your roof from sagging. 

3. When you have your walls built, drape sheets over the whole structure to create a roof. Use clothespins to attach sheets if they are not big enough and use heavy books to anchor down the sides. 

4. Line the interior of your fort with blankets and pillows so you have soft places to lie down. 

5. Bring in flashlights or string up fairy lights to help add ambience and provide light. Don't forget to turn them off when not in use! 

6. Bring in snacks and maybe some friends and enjoy a film inside the fort! This will be a treat on those upcoming cooler days
