This isn't exactly the speediest project in the world, but it can be quite meditative and will likely be one of your proudest and most-used (especially in the summer!) DIY achievements: weaving your own hammock!
If you've got the patience and some free time on your hands, this tutorial takes you through all the steps to make a two-tone sail rope hammock. The geometric weaving pattern used also holds up better than the traditional hammock weave.
If you really stay focused, you can complete this project over the course of a lazy afternoon — and then reward yourself with a much-deserved nap afterward.
