Cover your family room walls with sheets, blankets and fabric by tacking with pushpins. Get as close to the ceiling as possible.

Step 2.

String fishing line from one side of the room to another by wrapping the ends around the pushpins that are already attached to the walls. You can also tack the fishing line to the ceiling for extra support. Once in place, gently hang a sheet over it to give the room the full blanket-fort effect.

Step 3:

Dim the lights and string twinkly lights on top of the sheets using the tacks that are already in the wall.

Step 4:

Cover your couch and floor with blankets, sheets and throw pillows to achieve the cozy effect. (Optional: Add balloons for an extra festive feel.)
