What You’ll Need
- 2.5 to 3 yards of heavy canvas fabric
- Grommet tool and at least 20 grommets
- 2 hardwood beams 1.25 inches thick x 2 inches wide x length of your hammock’s width
- Drill & 1/2 inch drill bit
- 100 feet of quarter inch cotton rope
- 2 large metal “O” rings
These hammock chairs look super comfy and the perfect place for relaxing in the yard or reading on rainy days at home ! Hammock chairs are available at many department stores, but can be costly. You can save money by making your own custom hammock chair using a few basic inexpensive materials purchased from an arts and crafts or fabric supply store. (Picture source :Facebook)
