In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through the process of creating your very own trampoline tent.

How to Make a DIY Trampoline Tent

Materials You'll Need: 

  • Tarp or waterproof fabric
  • PVC pipes or lightweight poles
  • Bungee cords or zip ties
  • Clamps
  • Duct tape
  • Fabric for the tent walls (optional)
  • Velcro strips or zipper (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Marker


Step 1: Measure Your Trampoline

Start by measuring the diameter of your trampoline. This will help determine the size of your tent.

Step 2: Create the Frame

Utilize PVC pipes or lightweight poles to form a circular frame. Cut the pipes to the desired length and connect them securely.

Step 3: Attach the Frame to the Trampoline

Secure the PVC frame to the trampoline frame using clamps. Ensure a stable connection that won't easily tip over during play.

Step 4: Cut the Tarp

Cut a piece of tarp or waterproof fabric large enough to cover the entire frame, with some excess for draping over the edges.

Step 5: Secure the Tarp

Use bungee cords or zip ties to tightly secure the tarp to the PVC frame. This prevents flapping in the wind and ensures a snug fit.

Step 6: Optional - Add Walls

If you desire a fully enclosed tent, cut additional fabric for walls and attach them to the frame using Velcro strips or zippers for easy access.

Step 7: Create an Entrance

If walls are added, create an entrance by leaving one section open or adding a zippered opening. Use Velcro or a zipper for a secure entrance.

Step 8: Stabilize the Tent

Reinforce the connections between PVC pipes with duct tape to enhance the stability of your tent.

Step 9: Optional - Decorate

Let your creativity shine by adding decorative elements such as fairy lights, fabric drapes, or any other embellishments that suit your style.

Step 10: Safety Considerations

Prioritize safety by ensuring the tent is securely attached to the trampoline and avoiding the use of heavy materials that may pose a risk.
