So, this link was floating around Pinterest a lot, so I thought I would give it a try. I laughed because the tag for this post is, “Good grief, I should have done this years ago.” And, yes, we all should have done this years ago. For a thrifty Dutch girl like myself, why not make your own watering can?
The lovely blog, A Journey to Dream, put together these simple instructions for creating the milk jug watering can. I didn’t exactly follow her instructions by using a needle and some matches. In fact, I didn’t even punch the holes – my handy father-in-law helped me out with that one.
So, here’s our finished product. It comes in really handy because I have two flower pots on the front porch that need constant watering and it’s a lot easier to fill up a milk jug in the sink than mess with a big ol’ watering can. (And, I think our watering can got left in Michigan!)
My one complaint – the water flows a little slow, so I find myself squeezing the jug to make it go faster. I’ve crushed one jug already, but it’s no big deal because there is always a replacement in our fridge! 🙂
