I needed one for some crafts my children were doing and I couldn't find my kitchen one anywhere! So I attempted to make a paper funnel, which didn't work out very well because it was too flimsy. So I tried to think of something more durable and came up with the idea of the milk cartons. I store my empty (washed out) milk cartons in a container in the house ready to put out into the recycling bin which is collected fortnightly.
All I needed to do was cut the carton in half. The bottom half of the container could also be used as a storage container to store fruit in the fridge for example. I actually like the idea of this funnel because you can hold the handle to make it more sturdy than the normal funnels.
After making this I decided to google the idea and there were various options around for recycling/upcycling empty milk cartons including using them as scoops (involves keeping the lid fastened on). Another option for making a funnel could be an empty plastic drinks bottle.
I thought I would share this with my followers because it is such a simple and cheap solution for a funnel. I am always happy when I find new ideas for recycling and upcycling things! If any of my readers have any other suggestions regarding diy funnels or re-using milk cartons then please do share them with me.
