How to make an Easy DIY Tool to Water your Christmas Tree
1.) Purchase 1.5″ PVC already cut to length, or alternatively, cut to desired length (approx. 3-4′) using saw (hacksaw, folding saw, handsaw will all work).
2.) Cut bottom of milk jug off using a utility knife or scissors.
3.) Place neck of milk jug into one end of PVC pipe. Duct tape in place.
Check out the video above to see the nitty gritty. It’s definitely as easy as it sounds.
4.) Water your tree without breaking your back.
Grab a pitcher full of water. Standing upright, simply slide the PVC into the tree stand’s water reservoir.
Slowly pour the water from the pitcher into your watering tool.
Hallelujah! Christmas and your back are saved this holiday season. Make one for your parents. It’s a cheap gift, but certainly one that will be appreciated by anyone who doesn’t want to get on all fours to water that darn tree (which is pretty much, everyone).
