If you have a bunch of plastic bags lying around, upcycle them into a hammock chair! All you need to make one is time (you’ll need to braid each plastic bag to make it sturdy), about 500 plastic bags, two spring link carabiners and rope. The hammock chair has been tested to hold about 220 pounds. Check out Instructables for a step-by-step guide on how to make your own!
