Make Your Own Duct Tape Hammock For Cheap Lounging

With about three rolls of duct tape, two large wooden dowels, and 20 feet of rope, you can make a cheap homemade hammock to turn your back yard into a prime lounging spot.

Instructables user Dadzilla made his in a US flag theme, but there are plenty of colours to choose from when you’re shopping for your own tape. Check out the link below for detailed instructions and more images.

  • Hmmm,… Three rolls of duct-tape,.. I don’t know about the US, but in OZ duct-tape is quite expensive, add the rope and heavy dowel and you could more than likely buy a cheap hammock for around the same price, which, being designed for the job, would definitely be a lot more comfy and stronger. In my opinion, this is just a gimmicky way to waste tape and money…

  • @Nodeity, you’re right.
    Duct tape is pretty strong, even the cheap stuff, so I think this would be as strong as a bought hammock, but that’s all it’s got to recommend it. It looks much more uncomfortable and considerably uglier than a bought one – and all for about the same price (or more) and so much more work.
