Since we only have one planter, a small flower bed, and three hanging baskets to keep watered, I didn't really want to have to get a watering can. (Read: I forgot to buy a watering can when we got the hanging baskets and am not arsed to traipse to Homebase for one. Also, I really don't want to have to lug a watering can home on the bus.)
Last night I wondered if I could repurpose an empty milk carton as a makeshift watering can, and since my planter was looking a bit dry this morning I decided to test my theory.
I punched some holes in the lid of the carton using a safety pin, filled it up with collected rainwater, put the lid back on, and took it for a spin.
BOOM: one DIYed upcycled milk carton watering can.
Have a great weekend!
