What To Do With Old Broken Garden Hose? 5 Creative DIY SolutionsIntroduction: Outdoor hose repairs can be expensive, and if your garden hose is beyond repair, it’s time to get creative! If you’re looking for ways to repurpose your old, broken garden hose check out these 5 creative DIY solutions.
From planters and wind chimes to dog toys and art projects, you’ll find the perfect project that will turn your garden trash into something special.
Upcycle Into a PlanterTurning an old garden hose into a planter is one of the most popular upcycling ideas for backyard gardens.
Start by cutting off any damaged parts of the hose then use a hot glue gun to attach two pieces together in order create height or form different shapes with the cutouts from each piece of the pipe.
You can also add handles made from wire or twine so you can easily move them around as needed.
Once you have constructed your planter shape fill it with soil and start adding plants like succulents, flowers or herbs – whatever takes your fancy!
Wind Chime CraftsTake advantage of those pesky holes along long sections of hoses by turning them into musical instruments! Using fishing line tie several lengths together through each hole then hang them in different positions on tree branches or door frames in order to achieve interesting tones when they are hit by wind gusts.
For added fun decorate all sides with colorful beads or charms which will add visual interest while still creating noise every time there is a breeze outside.
Dog ToysIf you have an active pup at home this could be just what they need – homemade dog toys made from old pipes! Simply take small sections of the pipe (lengths should be no more than 4 inches) and tie rope securely around both ends then let your pup go wild playing tug-of-war and fetch games with their new toy .
For extra fun jazz up their playtime experience by adding treats inside each tube section before tying up both ends.
Art ProjectsUse broken pipes as canvases for unique works of art; paint directly onto surfaces using acrylic paints in bright colors like red blue yellow green etc.
Alternatively use glass glitter glue markers stencils stickers fabric scraps bits & bobs found lying around – anything goes when it comes to artistic expression!.
Finally seal everything off using waterproof varnish spray so that artwork remains intact even after being exposed outdoors.
