The Best Holiday Gifts You’ll Give This Year Are Made Of PVC Pipe


Let’s be honest, the best gifts usually can’t be found at the mall. These are no exception. You’ll be able to make most of these fun and useful gadgets with not too many more tools than a pipe cutter or hacksaw and drill. And some PVC Pipe, of course.

Marshmallow Shooter

Your nephew, your brother, heck even your mother will appreciate a Marshmallow Shooter. They’re super easy to make and can shoot up to 20 feet! And during the holidays, you can find those little green and red marshmallows to make their aim that much more fun. You might have to make an extra for yourself. https://makezine.com/projects/marshmallow-shooter/


Vertical Garden

The cool thing about this garden is that it’s portable! And it’s great for small outdoor spaces, several of them could fit on a small balcony. Spray paint it whatever color you want, and this handy garden looks really stylish too.   http://www.instructables.com/id/Portable-pvc-vertical-garden/


Water Blaster

Who doesn’t love a good water fight, even in the winter? This design is super simple and epically fun. It’s basically a big syringe that’s much easier to use, and blasts way more water, than a typical water gun. You just dip it into a bucket of water to suck up the ammo, and blast away. https://www.popsci.com/diy/article/2013-06/diy-waterzooka


iPad Stand

This multi-use stand can be used to prop up your iPad for watching netflix in bed, or a cooking video in the kitchen. These simple instructions include an option to add a kickstand for easier propping, and even double as a tripod.  http://www.instructables.com/id/An-iPad-Tablet-PVC-Stand-Anyone-Can-Make/


There’s so many gifts you could make with PVC Pipe, we couldn’t include them all here in one post.
