Have fun and remember to vote!

Step 1: Materials

  1. A queen or full sized bedsheet (make sure you can use it first)
  2. 12' of paracord cut in half
  3. A lighter
  4. A candle
  5. A place to hang a hammock
  6. Common sense!

Step 2: Fuse Paracord

Follow this link to my other Instructable on how to fuse paracord:

Step 3: Preparation

  • Spread out your sheet on the ground
  • Tie your fused paracord into a circle with either a square knot or any other binding knot.

Step 4: Accordion

  • Accordion fold both ends of your sheet, no need to do the entire thing.
  • While doing one end set a heavy object on the other folded end so it won't unravel.

Step 5: Tie Ends

Look at this video to see how to tie the ends!

After that, use any safe carabiner for your weight and hang!
