Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping is used for a variety of household plumbing tasks. Normally, people think of this material as a practical resource, but just for the fun of it, we’re sharing how PVC piping can also be a perfect supply for do it yourself (DIY) projects made for you or your kids!

Here are 5 DIY projects with PVC Piping (though the many options are truly endless).

  1. Fun for the kids this spring and summer!

How about something new for the kids this spring or summer? Turn PVC pipes into a special misting sprinkler for them to run through in the yard! Or master the art of water balloon fights with the creation of giant slingshots. Two easy DIY projects that will keep them smiling (and out of your hair)!

  1. Custom made towel drying rack

Here’s a simple and cheap way to create a practical towel rack for beside the pool or in the backyard. Make it as tall as you wish, with as many racks as you’d like! Plus it’s nice and sturdy.

  1. Bracelets for you or your kids

You can make numerous PVC bangle bracelets for literally pennies! Plan a wine & craft night with your friends. Or this is a great art project for your daughter and her friends. All you need is paint for a stylish and unique finish.
