Difficulty Level: Varies based upon type of hammock


For this project, you will need the fabric of your choice, strong rope, a dowel rod, 2-4 stainless steel quick links, and the ability to sew a couple straight lines. The smaller the hammock, the easier and quicker to build (ex: Chair Hammock). Hammocks can be designed in many ways, so have fun and create based upon your own style/theme.

Difficulty Level: Easy


Making your garden beautiful could be as simple as getting rid of all weeds and adding some new plants. But upgrading your garden requires more than just a flower bed. For example, you could add some flower pots, stone structures, water fountains, or walkways. For ideas on how to update your garden, click the picture!
