Step 6: Creating the Rope to Wrap Around a Tree

There should be one foot of Duct Tape on each side of the Hammock coming out from the intersections.

To create the rope wrap Duct Tape starting at the intersection. Wrap upward towards the closest ends around the 1ft strip so that about half of each wrap is on top of the last wrap. Continue this until the end and repeat at least 3 times. It is important to repeat this process because something sharp could cut through otherwise. Repeat on the other side of the Hammock.
it's an asome hammock but it takes a little bit of time (2 hours)
nice job- like the dog!
i actually tried this hammock and it worked! haven't tried the others yet though... so i can't judge to much!
I have to say- i have really enjoyed watching this contest. i this entry is a really great one- because it's no fuss and simply easy and enjoyable. nice job!
what a great idea! quick and easy- and perfect to carry on a hike. you don't need all the fancy stuff- just a plain durrable hammock to nap in. i'm off to attempt to make one right now! <br>
This is such a great example of a duct tape project! I think out of all the hammocks this one is certainly the best! WAY TO GO HAMMOCK BOY!
I certainly agree.
