Thinking of doing a Carnival theme this year and was wondering how I could go about making a red/white circus theme tent?

I use 3 tents I have made with parts from these guys: http://canopymasters.com/
You buy the fittings and then pickup metal conduit at home improvement store. The conduit can be cut to lengths to make what you want. They also sell tarps in a wide range of colors including stripes. Their site is basic but I originally bought my first setup for my wedding reception in 2001 and they are still in business. I now use a 20'x20', 10'x20', and 12'x20' tent for our yard haunt. They have all kinds of fittings to make lots of different configurations. I'm sure you can come up with something and in my case we have enjoyed owning these to use for family outings, parties, camping over the years. If you're interested check them out and I would be happy to try and answer any questions you might have if I can.

I took a 10'x10' canopy and used cheap plastic tableclothes from Party City or any party store, used a little geometry magic, cut, and taped together using clear packing tape. This will more than likely not hold up to strong wind, but its worth a try.

We did the same thing. Except we used duct tape for the stripes. Duct tape was on sale at a hardware store. So it ended up being cheaper.

I use an old metal gazebo frame (found at thrift store with out cover for $20) and cover it with clear plastic then project light effects on it from beneath. It looks very cool. Pictures don't do it justice. The moving lights underneath made it stand out n the neighborhood.
