Start by finding two sturdy pallet boards - now they don't have to look good, they just shouldn't split or be rotting. Cut one pallet in half for the back of the swing and keep the other pallet as it is for the seat.
Now, choose a paint color that you love and don't forget to use two coats of paint to totally cover and protect the wood.
Next, line up the half and full pallet and secure them with screws. The screws should hold the swing in place. The video offers additional tips for securing the piece even more.
Choose a good strong rope that will withstand in the outdoors.
Drill two holes into the top of the swing and two holes at the bottom of the swing to pass the rope through. Make sure the knots are tight.
Choose a tree that will support the weight of the pallets and take care to make sure the knots will stay in place.
You could Include a few special touches such as an oversize cushion, pillows, and blankets to make the swing comfortable.
You could also try out a basic one pallet swing which doesn't have any sort of backing.
You could even use a toddler mattress as the cushion, and you could get creative by covering the mattress in fun sheets with pillows all around!
