I am one of those people who thinks they can make anything or fix anything with duct tape. And this amazing tutorial by KipKay proves exactly that.

With two wooden dowels and a few rolls of duct tape, you can create this completely functional patriotic duct tape hammock. Of course, you don’t have to use red, white, and blue duct tape if you don’t want to. Whichever colors you choose, this hammock will definitely enhance your time in the backyard or when you’re out camping.

All you need is two wooden dowels spaced about six feet apart. Next, wrap a strip of duct tape from one dowel to the other. Repeat with more strips until dowels are covered.

Then, complete the same steps vertically using the duct tape.

On each corner of the dowel drill a hole and run an eye bolt with a nut through each hole. Lastly, tie each eye bolt with a piece of rope. Now, your duct tape hammock is ready to hang on a tree. For more detailed instructions, watch the video below.
