How To Make a Rain Barrel With a Trash Can


If you have a garden and are looking for cheap and efficient ways of watering it, then here’s a cool idea: transform a garbage can into a rain barrel. The best part is that this rain barrel is very easy to build and the entire project won’t take you longer than 1 hour. The difference when it comes to this barrel and other ones is that you don’t have to connect this one to a gutter, you can use it as a standalone rain barrel. Just place the barrel in a place where water isn’t necessarily accessible and collect the rainwater there for your plants. The entire list of supplies and the instructions for this little project can be found on the following link. Don’t forget to share it with your friends too!
