Perpetual Watering Can

IMG_2324

I’m not sure where I originally saw this idea, but at the time, I really liked it.  So,  when I noticed a tin watering can on clearance at a local craft store, I thought that I would try to make one for my yard.IMG_2273

Supplies:  Watering Can, Beads, Fishing Line, button and hot glue.  Total cost was about $15.

The beads were strung on fishing line that was then threaded through the holes in the watering can spout.  To secure the beaded strands the the watering can, the fishing line was tied to a button that was larger than the hole inside the can.  The button was then hot glued to the inside of the can.IMG_2327

I was originally thinking of planting a flower inside the can, but when handing the watering can in nearly sideways, so I’m not sure that a plant would stay.  I may try to change how the watering can hangs, but haven’t come up with a good way to hang it at an angle.  Any suggestions?
