4. Outdoor waterbed

All You Need:

  • Painter’s plastic (10×20)
  • Ironing board and iron
  • Parchment paper
  • Duct tape


  • Turn your iron on to its hottest setting.
  • Roll out the plastic and fold it in half.
  • Take a two-feet long piece of parchment paper. Fold it in half, length-wise and draw a line about 2-inches out from the fold. This will be your guide of how far into iron. Begin with the edge of plastic opposite of its fold, starting at the corner. Open up your parchment and place your plastic inside, aligning it to the fold of the parchment. Then, fold the parchment back over.
  • Use the iron to melt the plastic together by running the iron across the line of your parchment. The iron should not touch the bare plastic.
  • Let cool for a few seconds before removing the parchment.
  • Continue to seal all of the edges, overlapping a few inches to make sure there are no holes. After sealing the end opposite of the fold, work from the sealed edge toward the fold. Everything will align perfectly! Now, carefully cut a small slit in the folded end of the plastic, near the corner.
  • Place the hose in a few feet, and prop the corner up so that the water does not spill out while you fill your water blob.
  • Seal off with duct tape.
