I had a galvanized watering can that I wanted to do something with but wasn’t sure what.  Then one day it hit me – make a simple watering can decoration for your yard or garden.

You'll need a watering can, a yard stake (mine came from the Dollar Tree), and some beads. My beads actually were to decorate a vase and I believe I got these at Walmart. You can easily make your bead string.

I used a metal metal connector to attach the beads to the watering can spout. The metal connector looked like a keychain and I just opened it up and stuck one side end in one hole and the other side end in another hole.

I'm planning on putting this in my flower bed. My flowers are just starting to grow back this year.  The stake disappears and it looks like the can is floating.

    1. Thanks Linda, I’m so glad you like it. I am all about simple and easy. I did get a solar light from Dollar Tree that aims up at the can so at night it lights up. 🙂

  2. How would you link to beads together?

    1. Hi Sharon, great question. I would look for those little metal loops – kind of like key rings and use those. They come in a variety of sizes. They sometimes sell them in the jewelry section at craft stores, or hardware stores might have something as well.
