Soda Bottle Fruit Picker DIY

Can’t reach the fruits hanging from the higher branches of your trees? Don’t let them go to waste, use a fruit picker!

Soda Bottle Fruit Picker DIY

Now why buy one when you can make one out of a soda bottle yourself?

This little DIY project costs nothing since all the materials are recycled. If you don’t have a wooden rod, you can use other piping material or a long tree branch instead. Just try to find one that can fit snugly into the mouth of your soda bottle.

If you can’t find a rod that fits just right, you can still use what you have by securing the bottle to it with a screw. But make sure the plastic bottle will not slip or be left stuck in a tree while you’re trying to pick fruits.
