This spinkler is a simple recycle project that can be a lawn spinkler or just a device that the kids can use to get wet!
1 Empty 24oz soda bottle
1 Plastic coat hanger with or without hook
2 Large rubber bands
1 Hose end replacement kit 5/8"($1.67 at Lowes)
1 Rubber washer for swivel hose end
Mighty Putty
Drill & bits
1. The most difficult part of this project is adapting the water hose to the soda bottle. I made 2 different adapter, one way was to cut the swivel end of an old water hose off keeping about 4" of hose and attach another swivel end to the short hose(see photo below). The other way is to drill a 3/4" hole in the soda bottle cap and insert the stem of a hose end replacement kit into the hole in the bottle cap and apply mighty putty around cap and stem to secure(see photo below).
2. Attach soda bottle to plastic hanger with rubber bands as in photo(tie bands to hanger with half hitch).
3. Drill 1/16" holes in the top & sides of the soda bottle, use a pattern that will give you the most spray coverage.
4. Attach adapter to bottle. With the hose type adapter you will need to add 1 extra rubber washer inside the swivel before screwing onto the bottle because the threads are different and only screw on part way. The best adapter is the second one where the cap fits nicely onto the bottle.
5. Attach water hose and you have a recycled bottle sprinkler.
Two adapters and hose end replacemant kit


  1. OMW, NOW Thats a cool idea .

  2. Found this on Pintrest... great idea, will be putting it to use this Summer.

  3. that's a wonderful idea!!

  4. Devise? You mean device?

  5. Simple and cheap. Love it. Will come in handy as long as there is no hosepipe ban in the UK.

  6. Could always use it to water garden .

  7. This Is a great idea love it will be trying this when it warms up for sure!!!

  8. What a great idea! I'd love for you to share at my Outside Play Party.

  9. we did it..the kids Loved it!! we hung it over a branch instead of laying it on the ground!!

  10. Clever idea, I am going to do this!!!

  11. Hi! I was wondering if this could work for a 2 liter bottle and if so what size replacement kit would I need? Would the 5/8" still work?

  12. If you make the second type adaptor you will be fine. If you use the 5/8" hose you will have to check to see if your 2 litter bottle has the same size threads as a 24 oz bottle.

  13. OMG! Great idea... could also use this as a camp shower... put holes in the bottom of the bottle and hang over a tree limb. The possibilitie are endless.

  14. It's awesome designed for me to have a site, which is helpful in favor of my know-how. thanks admin

  16. Haha - Papa John's gave us a free 2-liter for having to wait on an order the other night, and I busted a hanger this morning, trying to get dressed in a hurry! Add a grandchild & a little water = great fun! Thanks for the idea.
