The holiday season is about giving, so give back to Earth this year by making festive decorations from recycled PVC pipe. With a little creativity, the possibilities are endless.
One popular and easy project for beginners crafting with PVC pipe is candy canes. Don't be afraid to test the limits of your creativity. You can also make reindeer, Christmas trees and a replica of the North Pole for your yard all from PVC pipe.
The basic supplies you will need to get started are PVC pipe in various sizes, PVC cement, PVC elbows and a hand saw. Add paint, glitter, Christmas lights and colored tape to add cheer to your decorations.
Be safe when working with PVC pipe and hand tools. Wear goggles to protect your eyes and heavy duty gloves for your hands. Protect your decorations from harsh weather with a coat or two of shellac.
