Introduction: Water Bottle Tripod!

Picture of Water Bottle Tripod!

In this instructable, I will show you how to make a cheap and sturdy tripod out of a water bottle and a few of very easy to find objects for your camera.

All you need is:
Water Bottle (With water in it)
Water Bottle Cap
A Knife
Nut and Bolt
And a camera

Step 1: Make the Cap

Picture of Make the Cap

Take your cap, and cut a hole in it, large enough to fit the bolt, but small enough that its a tight fit.
Note: Make sure your bolt is the correct size to fit in your tripod slot on your camera

Once you have your hole, push the bolt through in, and screw on your nut, like the picture below.


Done!


Step 2: Use It!

Picture of Use It!

Once your cap is complete, put it on your water bottle and use it!

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have water in your bottle, the water weighs the bottle down, and prevents it from falling.

If you are worried about water spilling on your camera, you can put a ring of glue around the bolt to seal any cracks.


I apologize for the short instructable, this project is so simple, theres just not much to say about it.

Enjoy!

drinkable and functional

i tried this before with normal bottle water, i open the bottle, squizze it so it gets the shape of me holding it, then seal it, even using that on the water tripod, it can be mobile.or atleast more able to be held.

great idea, i think i'll do this tomarrow, but it would be better if you cut 4 holes on the side of the bottle near the bottom, and cross/ secure 2 pencils through it for a better stand so it doesn't tip over as easily. but this would make it so you cant drink from it obviously.

I'd suggest using sand instead of water, but other than that this is a cool idea!

im sorry to say this but you cant drink sand

If you use sand, you cant drink out of it, the great thing about this is that its a multi tasker

Try a weight in the bottom

MISC brah, this is awesome

What would happen if the bottle was to spill over your flip mino? I have a flip mino and im not risking it near water....

iMac (author)dkfa2009-01-21

If it fell, the water wouldnt spill, becuase the the bolt has a tight fit in the hole. If you are really worried about it, you can just put some glue around the hole.
