Watch: Improved Method for Making DIY Grass Rope
Russ Chastain 10.04.17
A couple years ago, we shared a video about how to make grass rope. Well, now the guy who made that video has created a new one using an improved method, and this time, he does recommend that you use dry grass (to prevent rope shrinkage, which weakens the rope).
The video begins with him cutting some grass, then cuts to him using grass rope to climb a tree. It easily supports his weight, and he gives it a more thorough test later in the video.
He says it takes him about five minutes per foot to make the stuff, which is made by simply twisting bundles of grass and allowing them to twist together, while keeping each bundle the same diameter.
Seems like a great skill to have, don’t ya think?
