DIY Tree Swing

July 9, 2013

After a week of rain, it was good to spend yesterday afternoon outside enjoying the sunshine.  For us, that means lounging on the deck while watching our toddler throw dishtowels into her kiddie pool. Whatever. I love all the time we spend out there, though, despite the eleven towels I have to wash and dry every day.

One thing I’d love to have in the yard for Ruby is a tree swing like the one I had as a child.  There is just something so lovely about swinging under a big tree–and you can go so high! Unfortunately, we don’t have any big trees out back, so that won’t work for us, but maybe it would work for you. My childhood tree swing was just a wooden board attached with some rope (it got the job done!), but I just ran across this charming little tutorial on DesignLoveFest and the resulting swing is really sweet.  Those tassels!

Go here to see the full tutorial, and check out this site if you need help figuring out how exactly to hang a tree swing.  Who knew it was so complicated?
