There’s so many ways to make pallet swings. Here’s a tutorial to make a pallet swing bed that fits a twin sized mattress.

Materials needed:

  • 2-3 pallets
  • 3 pieces of 2×4 lumber
  • Drill
  • Screws
  • Saw
  • Measuring Tape
  • Solid braid pro-grade rope with a high working load limit
  • Mattress and zippered mattress cover – this will keep your mattress dry and protected

Step 1: Measure the length of your mattress to determine how long your 2×4’s should be. Cut your 2×4’s accordingly.

Step 2: Slide the 2×4’s through the middle of the pallets and along the inside edges. Add additional pallet slats in the middle to bridge the gap.

Step 3: Secure the pallet to the 2×4’s.

Step 4: Drill holes in the corners of the pallet for the rope to go through. Make sure to drill through both the top and bottom of the pallet.

Step 5: Thread the rope through the holes and around the bottom of the pallet and 2×4. Tie your rope securely and tie your rope to a strong tree.
