Print this Country Shabby Chic DIY Watering Can Craft Idea
- Branch about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter with a smaller side limb
- Small, pliable, green twig
- Optional: fresh cut flowers or herbs
STEP 1: Using the hand saw for the larger branch and scissors for the green twig, cut as shown in Photo 1. The larger branch will become the watering can body, and the small green twig will become the handle.
STEP 2: Repeat Step 1 as many times as you like. Now, from your 1 inch (2.5 cm) branch, cut a few flat discs, one for each watering can you’ll be making. Each disc will sit on the end of a watering can spout to serve as the nozzle.
STEP 3: Clean up each small green twig. I removed all the buds and extra tiny branches.
STEP 4: Fit your cordless drill with a drill bit similar in size to your small green twig. Drill 2 holes on the back of your watering can body; one near the top entering at a diagonal angle, and a second one near the bottom going in straight.
STEP 5: Take your green pliable twig and insert the ends, along with a little dab of glue, into those 2 holes you just drilled. This will form your watering can handle.
STEP 6: Using a very small bit, drill a tiny hole into the spout end of your watering can.
STEP 7: Drill a hole through the center of each disc.
STEP 8: Finally, to create the watering can nozzle, take a tiny nail (less than 1 inch (2.5 cm) long) and press it through the disc and into the tiny hole you drilled into the spout end.
At this point, if you’re so inclined, you might like to drill a hole into the top of your watering can to accommodate a pretty flower or a sprig of fresh herbs. Isn’t that pretty? You have achieved Tiny Twig Watering Can magic! Enjoy!
