Need a good outdoor ‘bed’ you can use for relaxing in your yard? Here’s a quick DIY project that’s sure to be envied by the neighbours! 🙂
Hammocks are a great way to snooze, canoodle or simply read, any time of day, indoors or out. This unique ‘grass’ hammock is a very easy project you can do in less than an hour if you already have posts, trees or a handy hammock stand.
It’s comfortable and definitely unique! Take a picnic lunch with you and enjoy an ant free experience!
Can you imagine now resting on this inviting hammock? 🙂
- Grass Shag Carpet
- 2 pcs – Tie Downs
- 2 pcs – Black Metal Pipes
- Zip Ties
- Caribiner or Quick Links
- Silver Sharpie or any Marker
- Measuring Tape
- Knife (military tactical type)
I didn’t even need to measure at all I just counted the seams. I started by finding the relative center by counting how many seams from the outside would fit the pipe.
I marked this spot with a silver sharpie. I then rolled the pipe back until I could roll enough of the carpet around the pipe to cover it.
I cut some slits where I thought I should bring the hooks through.
I slid the hooks in the small slits and put the pipe in the hook.
I then tucked the end of the carpet between the hook and the pipe to keep it in place.
