We had to create banner holders to hold banners for Vacation Bible School.  The cheapest ones we found on the internet were about $70 each, so we had to find an alternative solution.    We decided upon an "H" pattern of 1 inch diameter PVC for the base.  In the middle of the "H" base, we put a "T" connector with a vertical 5 foot piece of 1 inch diameter PVC.  The banner holder was attached to the top of this with a "T" connector and 1 inch PVC.  

Step 1: Materials

15 feet of 1 inch diameter PVC
4 1 inch PVC "T" connectors
PVC glue
Plastic spray paint
2 1 inch PVC end caps
30 inches of 3/8 inch diameter wood dowel
<p>Thanks for the awesome Instructable. To stabilize the holder further, in order to withstand wind gusts and incremental weather a bit better as ours will be used almost exclusively outside, I filled the base with gravel and added end caps that were permanently affixed with PVC glue. In fact, I permanently set the entire base. My unit doesn't disassemble completely however taken apart into two parts, the horizontal &quot;I&quot; and vertical &quot;T&quot;, it stores just fine and flat. I also used 1-1/2&quot; black PVC pipe which is a bit heavier than the 1&quot; piping plus it saved me from having to spray paint. The entire project cost me less than $35 to make something that will surely last for years to come.</p>
<p>Great idea about the black PVC! I wish I would have thought of that. The paint is coming off of ours in spots :) Yours looks great.</p>
Excellent build; the finished product looks very professional. No criticism intended; I'm a compulsive proofreader: the correct spelling you want here is &quot;taut&quot; not &quot;taught.&quot;
Thanks for the &quot;taut&quot; find. I fixed it. You might have to refresh your browser to see the change.
Nice project, keep up the good work!
