What You Can Make From PVC Pipes With Your Own Hands: 20 Ideas For Giving (Part 1)

PVC pipes are popular with handy and skillful summer residents. And not only for its intended purpose, but also as a material for all sorts of useful homemade crafts.

The imagination of master inventors is truly inexhaustible, so I managed to collect far from all the ideas, but I think it’s not the quantity that matters here. The main thing is to take a fresh look at the familiar material, and there the ideas of its useful use in your own country farm will not keep you waiting.

So I invite you to look through today’s selection and get inspired. And if you have already made something from polypropylene pipes, be sure to tell us about your experience and impressions in the comments, agreed?

10 ideas for a garden and a vegetable garden

I would never have thought that the possibilities of using pipes in the garden and vegetable garden are so diverse. Personally, I only came up with greenhouses and greenhouses, but it turned out that there are much more ideas! Some of them impress with their originality, others conquer with their practicality.

I chose the top ten from them, from my point of view: the most useful in the economy and quite easy to implement.

Fences, gates and garden screens

Using pipes in this way would definitely not have occurred to me until I saw these photos. I was especially impressed by the photo on the left — this is how much work and patience it takes to first cut rings of the same thickness from pipes of different diameters, then pick them up in such a way as to fill a given area, and then securely fasten them. But the result was definitely worth it.

Using PVC pipes, you can fence the entire plot or separate part of it (for example, a vegetable garden or a front garden), make a fence for a terrace or garden screens for zoning the territory. They can be purely utilitarian, or they can acquire a very elegant appearance — everything is in your hands.

A practical idea is to use pipes as a frame for a fence made of mesh. So you can not only make a fence, but also, for example, a summer home for chickens.

Aviaries and summer houses for chickens

Many people have already appreciated the advantages of dacha chicken farming. And perhaps the most difficult thing is to find a budget solution for the construction of a chicken coop and walking, especially if we are talking about seasonal, and not year-round maintenance. But PVC pipes help out here too:

Variants of such structures may be different. In particular, there are quite ingenious mobile solutions, which is very practical: chickens very quickly turn a green clearing into a trampled desert, so regular relocation will benefit both them and the landscape.

Greenhouses and greenhouses

That’s really what polypropylene pipes are ideal for. Moreover, the design can be chosen for every taste and skill level. If there are no skills to work with this material at all, as well as the tools necessary for such a case, you can even do without them. Well, masters with experience will certainly build a house for plants for everyone to look at without hints.

By the way, please note: the structures in the top two photos can equally successfully act as a greenhouse, and as a summer chicken housing. And the greenhouse in the photo below on the right brilliantly combines two functions of pipes at once: they serve as a frame and provide irrigation.

Supports for plants

Various types of supports for horticultural crops are perfectly obtained from PVC pipes: arches, trellises, fences for berry bushes. One of our readers has such an experience: A support for climbing plants made of PVC pipes.

And another told about how she made a nice fence for bushes out of pipe scraps. And by the way, it can be not only an elegant decorative, but also a convenient practical solution that is suitable for both currants with gooseberries, and for peonies or other plants whose bushes tend to fall apart during flowering or fruiting.

And then, having mastered the work with pipes perfectly, you can proceed to the production of more complex and time-consuming decorative supports and garden design elements.

Summer shower

You can also use pipes almost for their intended purpose. That is, water will flow through them. And the result will be a wonderful fun for children and adults — a refreshing summer shower.

The only nuance that needs to be provided, from my point of view, is the water source. Hardening is a useful procedure, of course, but an ice shower from well water is still extreme fun. So you should take care of a large container in which the water for your shower will bask in the sun.

Washbasin or sink for a summer kitchen

You can’t do without water in the summer kitchen, and it will be useful near the garden: rinse fresh herbs or radishes, wash your hands. And again, polypropylene pipes will come to our aid — not only to bring water, but also to build a light mobile sink.

Such a design will turn out to be significantly lighter than a wooden or metal analog, which means that it can easily be moved to where it is more needed. It remains only to connect the hose — and that’s it!

Clothes dryers

We splashed in the shower, washed our hands — we need a towel. And then it needs to be dried somewhere. There are convenient dryers for this case. Of course, made of PVC pipes, who would doubt it!

The only drawback of the structures presented in the photo, from my point of view, is their bulkiness. They are undoubtedly good in the summer by the pool — but where to put them in the winter? You should worry about this right away, so that the problem does not appear at the most inopportune moment.

Garden carts

How often in the country something needs to be moved somewhere — from materials to the harvested crop. But it is much easier to transport (and more useful for health) than to carry it on yourself! And this means that the cart is an absolutely necessary thing in the dacha economy. Or even more than one.

And a similar cart can be assembled as a trailer for a bicycle. However, I don’t know how practical this is, but fans of long cycling trips may appreciate the idea: not only everything for a picnic, but also a tent with fishing rods will be loaded into such a trailer without any problems…

Houses and other fun for the playground

Adults generally always have things to do in the country. But it can be more difficult for children: do not go to my mother’s flower beds, you can not go to the pond, it is dangerous on the street… What should I do then? There is no such question if the elders have taken care of a good playground for their child, where there is also a place for interesting crafts made of PVC pipes.

I think the idea of a house (or rather, its frame) made of pipes has already occurred to many people. But, as you can see, this does not exhaust the possibilities of a universal “building material”. Houses and sunshades, game pavilions and mini-attractions — you can do everything that you have enough imagination and skills for. For example, here are such game stands:

Fun with water and sand can take the children for a long time. And since the design is mobile, it can always be moved to where your favorite child will be under supervision.

Gazebos and canopies

Adults, however, also need to think not only about dacha affairs, but also about rest. This means that we will need a gazebo, a tent or at least a canopy where you can hide from the sun and sit in good company over a cup of tea or with kebabs.

I don’t know about the reliability and winter hardiness of such a frame — maybe it’s not worth taking a swing at something fundamental right away… But the simplest canopy, as they say, in a hurry, can be built for an experiment. And then time will tell…
