How To Make Working Water Dispenser – DIY Desk Water Cooler

In this video I show how to make a water dispenser or water cooler. It works and made of regular stuff anyone can find at home! Super easy! Pour it with lemonade, ice tea or any other drink and enjoy!

Water Dispenser or Cooler

For my DIY super-duper cool-cooler and beverage dispenser 🙂 you will need:

  • Empty Pringles can

  • Empty Nutella jar

  • Empty toothpaste tube

  • drinking straw


Just few tips:

  1. Make holes diameter equal to the drinking straw diameter (2 holes – 5 mm each, drinking straw – 5 mm)

  2. Close the toothpaste cap tight!

How it works…

Well, hahaha, I’m not sure how exactly. I was just following my intuition when I was inventing it. But the main rule – the air, which comes through the drinking straw, pushes on water and it runs through the hole. If you will not close the toothpaste cap tight – water will drip. This means that air still can come through the drinking straw. Close it well – and the water will not drip! Amazing, isn’t it?

Love. Create. Discover.

  1. Hello. First if all i love this water dispenser. I had a trouble while making it (and couldnt do it but ill try again) I was filling the empty space in toothpaste cap while the drinking straw was in there but my glue gun melted the drinking straw );

  2. Can you use a Nutella jar larger than the size of the Pringles can? It’s because I have everything, except my Nutella jar is bigger than the Pringles can. I was wondering if you could just mark the holes inside of the can and glue it so that the jar is sticking off to the side a little bit.
