How To Patch A Canvas Tent In 6 Simple Steps

Canvas tents are warmer, sturdier, and last far longer than other types of tents. This is why it’s vital to repair them when they develop a small hole or a rip of any kind.

Here’s how to patch a canvas tent:

  • Select a round patch 4 inches larger than your tear
  • Make sure your patch lines up and fits the hole
  • Cut your patch down to size
  • Glue your patch with Barge cement glue, making sure it’s flat
  • Patch the other side
  • Place weights on each side of the patch overnight
