"Every little thing you love — from teensy toys to mismatched collections of vintage holiday items — has a home on this tree. Start by choosing a palette (we picked bright, happy colors), then fill pipes accordingly: We spray-painted plastic toy animals, spelled out joy and merry with letter magnets, and interspersed tiny wrapped presents, Advent calendar-style. Play around with the placement until you like the overall look (avoid grouping similar objects)."

Cute DIY Projects meantime shared a craft using PVC. Again, USING PVC, but PVC will be nowhere I the finished product. Plumbing Info
"Large packs of wool turned into thick yarn can help you craft a giant, fluffy blanket. Some wool batting laid out in rows to give a uniform thickness is all that you need for the yard. The rolled up yarn when washed, lightly felt, followed by being air dried outside can be the building ground of an ultra-warm cover. This huge blanket is made by knitting with extra-large knitting needles, which are actually large PVC pipes yielding big, lovely stitches to create the illusion of making everything under the blanket look too tiny."
