I was tired of ripping paper out of my notebook to make a funnel when I was deployed. The paper would get wet and the protein powder would get clumped up before it made it into my water bottle. So I decided to recycle my old water bottle and make a funnel. This funnel is great because I can screw it on to new water bottles with out making a huge mess and wasting other resources. I’ve had this funnel for a while and I haven’t had to make a new one.
I used the following materials because it’s all I had but you can get more creative with making your funnel. Just remember to practice safety when using knives, scissors or other sharp objects.
- Fixed Blade boot knife by smith and wesson (pocket knife will do just fine)
- Packaging tape (Super Glue will work better than tape)
- An empty used water bottle
- Used cap from a previously used water bottle.
Gather your materials, safely prick wholes into the tops of your two extra bottle caps. I perforrated little holes in a circular shape around the cap. I was able to pull the plastic tab right out of the hole with out cutting my fingers. Use caution while working with sharp objects. See the photo below:
Attache the two lids together using tape or what ever else you can use. Be sure to put the part of the lids that would be tops together. That way you can screw one lid to the funnel part of the water bottle and the other lid to the water bottle you are going to pour your mix into. tape the lids opposite of each other like this:
Open end of lid ——–> ] [ <-----------Open end of lid
Cut the old water bottle in half (sorry I don’t have a pic of that) Next, screw a side of the taped lids onto the cut in half water bottle and POOF you have a water bottle funnel that can be screwed onto the tops of water bottles. Use it at your camp outs for hot chocolate or other cooking things. It can be useful if you make it tough. Like I said my funnel has lasted a while.
