How to Make a Rope Swing

I added a little more incentive to go outside by making a simple rope swing for our backyard tree. I used a few supplies found at any hardware store: a pine disc (already cut into a circle), a carabiner, and a long piece of natural rope. With some stain, a drilled hole, and a few tree-climbing knots, the swing was finished and hanging in our tree in no time.

    Thank you for this. I wish we had a tree to do this on. No such luck. Well wishes from a fellow Texan.

    Redfly, we hung a second-hand plastic swing from the awning by the garage because we didn't have a tree that would work. It works great.

    back in the day we used tires and cut holes so they didn't hold water but that's a nice seat!
