Do you enjoy taking everyday items and making new creations out of them? Then PVC pipe should be your product of choice.
There are an endless array of possibilities for PVC pipe projects. For a crafty DIY'er, PVC pipe is inexpensive and easy to work with.
If you aren’t sure how you can use PVC pipe to help simplify or decorate your life, we’re here for you. I’m going to share some of the internet’s best ideas for repurposing PVC pipe.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
1. The PVC Bed
You can purchase the pattern to build this doll's bed out of PVC if you feel you need it. If not, you could use the picture as your inspiration.
2. DIY Boot Dryer
It stinks having wet feet, both figuratively and literally. The next time your work boots get wet, don’t leave them to sour.
3. PVC Fence
There’s no tutorial to help you along with this idea, but if you’re someone who can look at something and create it, this is a wonderful fence.
4. Hose Holder
My mom and I were talking recently about how she has a hard time keeping her scrunchy hose clean and wrapped up.
This would be an easy solution to this problem. Stick a piece of PVC in the ground, wrap the hose around it, and hold the nozzle at the top.
5. Huge PVC Laundry Sorter
We remodeled our bathroom over the winter. I combined my laundry room in the bathroom because it makes my life easier. In the process, I added a laundry sorter.
Those things are awesome! If you have room for a big laundry sorter, save yourself some money, and build it out of PVC.
6. PVC Table
You can save even more money by creating a table out of PVC pipe and wood. This appears to be an easy project for those who are new to building their own furniture.
7. PVC Phone Holder
We’re in the time where streaming is in, and we watch as many shows on our phones as we do our televisions.
Don’t bother holding your phone while watching your favorite shows anymore. Use PVC to create this unique holder to make your streaming experience hands-free.
8. PVC Towel Rack
If you’re fortunate enough to have a pool in your backyard, you must have a way to keep the pool toys and towels organized.
Don’t purchase anything fancy. Instead, build a towel rack from PVC pipe. It’ll organize your pool toys and give the wet towels a place to dry.
9. DIY Backyard Movie Screen
Summer nights are fun! You can swim, catch lightning bugs, and thanks to this fun idea you can now watch movies outdoors.
All it takes is some cloth and a few pieces of PVC pipe to build a stand. This will allow for time to relax and make fun memories.
10. The Kid Wash
Do you have kids who struggle to beat the heat during the summer? You don’t have a pool, but they love to play outdoors anyway?
You can construct this awesome kid wash out of PVC pipe. It allows the kids to run through it or ride their bikes through it to get a cool mist when the heat is too much.
11. PVC Fort
Does your child have a larger bedroom or a playroom? Would they enjoy having an indoor playhouse?
You don’t have to spend a fortune on the expensive prefab options. Instead, you can construct these PVC pipe projects and customize it to whatever theme your kids love.
12. PVC Pipe Water Shooter
If you have little kids, you know how they love to squirt water at each other. It’s a fun pastime during the brutal heat of the summer.
You don’t have to buy the cheap guns from the local five and dime anymore. You can make them an excellent long-range water shooter from PVC.
13. DIY Platform Swing
Are you looking for a multi-purpose swing which will be light on your wallet? This platform swing is everything you need.
It’s lightweight making it safe for kids, is constructed from PVC pipe which makes it light on your budget, and it’s easy to build.
14. PVC Succulent Planters
But what should you plant them in? You can make easy PVC planters which look modern but are cost-effective.
15. DIY Cabana
Would you like to have a beautiful place to rest outdoors after a long day or when you have guests over? You can create your own space easily and affordably.
PVC pipe is used to build the frame for this area. Add sheer curtains to the sides for privacy and blocking the sunlight to have an excellent space for resting.
16. PVC Light Poles
I’m in love with this idea. If you’d like to add an outdoor light to your home, this could be an affordable way of doing it.
There’s no tutorial, but you could create a base, add a PVC pipe as the stand, and get a fancy solar light to brighten up the darkness on a budget.
17. PVC Pipe Book Storage
As a homeschooling parent, I keep a ton of books around our home. They can become overwhelming at times.
This is where proper storage comes into play. If you have a place to store all the books, they’re a blessing instead of a burden. Create a book storage area out of PVC pipe.
18. PVC Tote Storage Organizer
I keep plenty of decorations and excess clothing in totes. The totes can become too much if left unproperly organized.
If you depend on totes to store your items when they aren’t in use, create this unique tote organizer as PVC pipe projects.
19. PVC Stand Alone Gate
Whether you’re the parent of small children or you have pets you want to keep in a specific area, this is a great gate option.
You construct it from PVC pipe and mesh wire. The gate stands on its own and appears to do a great job at blocking stairwells to keep everyone safe in your home.
20. PVC Lemonade Stand
When I was a kid, I grew up in a small subdivision, and it was quite common to see kids out on the sidewalks on the weekends selling lemonade.

Did you recently get a few chickens? Need an inexpensive but effective way of feeding them? PVC pipe can help.
Line up a couple of pieces of thick PVC pipe and attach them to the side of your coop wall. Fill the feeder at the top, and the chickens will eat from the bottom.
25. PVC Pipe Projects – Tomato Cage
Instead, use PVC pipe to build a monster cage around your tomatoes. It’ll be able to handle them no matter how big they get.
26. DIY Bike Rack
Do you live in or near a city? If you do, you most likely ride your bike to a variety of places. If you have a large family, that means quite a few bikes.
Instead of tossing them down in the yard or by the curb, use these PVC pipe projects to build this awesome bike rack. It’ll keep your equipment stored neatly until you’re ready to ride them again.
27. PVC Dog Cot
Do you have dogs which you love dearly, but you wish they’d keep their fluffy tails off your sofa? I totally understand!
If you want to keep your pooch off your furniture, create their own lounging location. You can use PVC and make them a comfortable cot they’ll love.
I would suggest adding a floor protector to the legs to prevent any damage to the floor, but this is an easy and useful project to start with.
