I’m always looking for new mediums to use for crafting! The hardware store can be such a great place to get inspiration. This week I was at the hardware store looking at grills and happened upon the PVC pipes and fittings. I have worked with PVC on other projects around the house and know that it is super easy to work with and it gives you a ton of options when it comes to sizes and shapes! You don’t even have to have any fancy tools! Just a saw and a little man power.
I came home and started to look for some ideas for my PVC inspiration.
These camp chairs by Simple Simon and Co are super cute and very easy to make! Would it be fun if you could figure out how to add a back to them too?
What kid wouldn’t love to run around the backyard and shooting marshmallows at his or her siblings? This Marshmallow shooter by Family Fun Crafts would be a load of fun!
When I started researching these projects I was really surprised to see how far Schedule 80 PVC pipe has come! They even make a schedule 80 CPVC pipe that is designed to handle even the most extreme circumstances! Chances are your crafts won’t be handling 200 degree temps or running with a 850psi! but someday you may have a project that does require that and its nice to know that you don’t have to spend more money on copper or steel pipes!
Here are a few more PVC pipe ideas!
I’m not sure that I am nearly this creative or patient but the folks at Platform Design sure are! This would be super cool to have out on a screened in porch!
You can even build the kiddos a little play tent just like the one here from CraftGossip.com
What is your favorite crafting medium? What kind of things could you make out of PVC pipe?
