Pinterest milk jug watering can


Have you all seen the watering cans made from milk jugs?  
They are quick, thrifty and easy to make.

Just rinse out your finished milk jug.  Heat up a big needle or nail with a candle or lighter and melt holes in the milk cap.  
It pours out a fine stream that won't damage tiny plants.  
And children just love refilling it and watering anything they can with it.  

I used a gallon jug but when it is full,  it is too heavy for 2 and 3 year olds.  I am going to save my current 1/2 gallon jug to make a smaller one.

  11. What a cool idea! I would even let the kids decorate it.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I have been able to get quite a lot of my daily to-do list done, although with some arthritis problems lately I don't get in as much as I'd like!
