Simple DIY Projects For Preppers
OK, so you’ve stored up enough water and food – or least your system for acquiring them is running well, and you’ve reached what Homestead Dreamers calls Stage 5 of prepping – “Comfortable Spot of Maintenance”. Now it’s time to expand your prepping and learn some new skills. The Urban Survival site has 18 Simple DIY Projects for Preppers.
Their projects range from easy to difficult, but even the difficult ones don’t seem all that difficult (says he who has yet to try them!).
One of their easy projects is building a brick rocket stove. Basically you just need about 16 bricks and some firewood. That’s it! And it looks like you could make it in about 10 minutes. If you make one and you live near the sea, why not combine making the stove with making your own sea salt? All you have to do is boil sea water down to about half, then leave in a pan out in the sun till all that is left is sea salt. By using your homemade rocket stove instead of your stove, you’re essentially getting FREE sea salt! This way, you’ve learned two new skills at once.
Another of their “easy” projects is making a pvc bow. There are tons of other easy prepper projects you can make out of pvc. Here’s my earlier post on PVC DIY prepper projects.
There are tons and tons of easy to do DIY prepper projects out there. You can Google them or search Youtube. For example, I recently paracord wrapped several of my knife handles using this video:
So, if you’ve good your food and water prepping under control and are looking for some easy projects to expand your prepping skills, these should get you started. Good luck!
