Need a Funnel? They’re Everywhere

From filling a gas tank to filling a bird feeder, it’s always good to have a funnel on hand. Making your own funnel out of household items is easy. Below we have 3 tips on how to make your own DIY funnel!

1. Plastic Cup

Find a plastic cup, cut a slit down one side and then cut off the bottom. Roll it into a funnel shape and tape it up. Now you have a DIY funnel ready to use!

2. Milk Carton/Plastic Bottle

Take a milk carton or plastic bottle, then cut the bottom off. While keeping the lid/top on, cut a small hole and insert a straw or small tube. Below is a YouTube clip of how to make a DIY funnel out of a plastic bottle.


3. Mustard Bottle

Find an old mustard bottle (we recommend Plochman’s). Similar to a plastic bottle, cut the bottom off. Just remember, you have to open the top for liquid to come out!
