DIY hammock ideas for summer

Summer's just around the corner, and what better way to kick back and enjoy it than by laying back in an outdoor hammock reading a great summer book

Below are some fun ideas for making your own DIY hammock or swing bed from material, rope, canvas or wood poles or pallets. Hopefully you can even find some of these materials that are old/repurposed and save money in the process. 

Check out the links at the bottom for instructions on making and hanging a hammock. 

Now to get my stack of books ready...
