All You Need To Make a Homemade Skipping Rope
2 pieces of PVC pipes each of about 15 cm
A good quality flexible wire. Make sure the length of the wire should reach your chest from your toes when you fold them together like this
Few metal wire pieces
At first, heat the small metal wire pieces with a candle or any other heating medium and make holes in the PVC pipes and insert a pair of metal wires at one end of both pipes. Take care of your hands while heating the metal wire pieces.
Insert the long wire in between the metal wire and tie a knot on the other side. Also, make sure that the knot is tight enough so that it doesn’t come out from the pipe.
Now, insert the spring from the other side of the wire. Keep in mind that the spring is loose on the wire so that it can move freely. Now insert the other side of the wire on the other piece of PVC pipe and tie a knot in there too. The PVC pipes will act as a handle for your skipping rope.
For your safety bend the metal rods on both pipes when you are done. Now your skipping rope is ready to rock.
