What Would You Do with a Watering Can?

For today’s What Would You Do Wednesday, I’m asking, “What would you do with an old watering can?” I saw this one at an antique store, but I didn’t buy it because I already own several. Next week, I’ll show you what I’ve done with mine (both indoor and outdoor projects), but this week, I can’t wait to hear your creative ideas on WWYD.

It’s summer and everyone is busy, so I’m not surprised that we didn’t have any ideas posted last week for toilet paper crafts. This week, I decided to choose something more summery, so my readers can implement the ideas right away.  it’s the season of watering cans and gardens.

 What Would You Do With This?

Here’s how to participate:

  1. You leave your idea(s) below on the link list and next week, I’ll go back in and edit to name a winning idea.
  2. Add your name at the end of your idea (optional). Example: I would paint it green and add yellow polka-dots. Then add glitter and sequins. From Michelle Rayburn.
  3. Add a link to your blog or a specific post if you’d like us to check out your site or if you want us to see an example of your great idea.

  1. i incorporated my old watering can into a fountain that uses several old galvanized pieces including buckets and funnels! i love it!

  2. I'd make a rustic wind chime. The can would be the top and I would string old silver utensils in a line from the spout to the bottom. Maybe even add stone beads to give it a little color. 🙂 Now I have to go find me a watering can!!
