Ultimate List of Prepper DIY Projects

ultimate prepper diy list

DIY and prepper should be synonymous. We always love to figure out how to do things ourselves.

In general, I believe people should be more interested in learning how to do things for themselves. Even if you won’t be doing it all the time, simply trying to understand the concept and how things work by doing it yourself can be an eye opener, as well as get the creative juices flowing.

I’m sure this isn’t a complete list, but here are some ideas to get you started! Feel free to leave a comment below if you see anything missing.

  1. Home Security Idea- Recently had a security situation /of concern. Cant really afford the materials for fencing w/ my amt of road frontage. Then it occurred to me. I have this agave plant growing @ the base of my kitchen window(live in the Southern US.) It puts out a massive # of Pups/ it’s offspring, in season. Now, I’ve done practically nothing in regards to its care other than dig up & separate its Pups from the Mother plant since we moved here. It was 3.5-4 ft tall @ that point. It is now? More than 5.5-to -6 ft tall, and extremely prickly sharp! If spaced properly, it could easily grow together and provide the security I want & need… May also prove to be potential income??? Haven’t given it much thought @ this point beyond security. I have to wonder, if done as a group effort/arrangement w/ perks w/ friends & family(for those w/ road frontage- to prevent people frome stealing them) if planned & cared for properly, if their growth rate might actually be better??? The reading I’ve done suggests there’s a great many other uses for this plant.. besides Security/ live fencing( like mescale- tequila from its roots, a healthy sugar alternative, fiber for rope & creating paper, etc) Just a thought. At least that part of my problem is solved.

    1. Hi Paige,

      Yes any time of prickly plant such as rose, cactus, blackberry, and even agave, can work great to plant around your home to help deter people.
