20066Hammock from recycled materials
- Jun 4, 2009I use a HH for my bicycle camping trips. I am looking for ideas for making a similar hammock from recycled materials for use by my two grandsons who are Cub Scout age.
Users 5 feet or less, less than 100 lbs, age 6-11 (basically Cub Scout age and size)
Materials recycled material, readily available at low or no cost from thrift shops, hotels, etc
Use bed sheets, blankets, curtains, canvas, clothing
Use sheer curtains for netting.
Cordage - - plastic pallet strapping (braid in roping), electrical wire, other
Rain Fly trash bags, paint drop cloths,
Tools scissors, needle, NO SEWING MACHINE, tape.
Keep cost of purchased items under $10.
Keep design easily done by a scout with some guidance by an adult
Any other ideas or sources are available for making a hammock of recycled material?
