How do I upcycle used CPAP hose?


Over the years I have discarded loads of used CPAP hoses, what could I make with these? I feel like there is there is very creative minds out there that can help me repurpose these 6' hoses.

    How about linking them and running twinkle lights through them? Could be a great way to decorate an outdoor seating area. :)

    I cut them into lengths that fit on the kids Tonka trucks. They use them as culverts when doing road construction.

    I am wondering if they were plastic snap-tied together, if they would float enough to make a small raft or water toy for kids to play with in the water (lake, pool)?

    Could you cut small holes in them and place them in a flower garden. Then just spray water through the cpap hose at one end, and the water would come out the hose, watering all of the plants at once?? Duct tape a few together for a longer length.

    Hi there, I upcycled mine by turning them into watering hoses. I just made lots of little holes (where there weren't already holes) zip tied the ends so they wouldn't gush water there and it worked great!

    You could lash them together in spiral or longer oval or oblong rug. You could use long canes and thread them over a couple and make a garden arch, or use shorter canes and use them to support a cloche. You could add a few long cane arches together at the top and form an arbour. Hope that give you a few ideas to work with. Have fun!

    I had thought about connecting them to a sander and shop vac to aid in dust control.
