UPCYCLE TENT POLES TO PLANT STAKES

Looking for more ways to upcycle an old shelter? Put those poles to use as plant stakes! What better way to support the environment than to actually support a living plant's growth. Share your upcycled shelter pole on social and tag us @lightspeed_outdoors.

What you'll need: garden shears and twine

  1. Cut poles carefully to desired length. 
  2. Use twine to secure your new plant stake to your plant. 

* instead of twine, you can also use the guy lines from your shelter or thin strips of material cut from the shelter walls.

BONUS TIP: If your tent has mesh windows or pockets, you can use the mesh as netting to protect smaller plants from bugs.


CAUTION: Be aware of sharp edges on trimmed poles.
