Great Ideas - DIY Watering Can

muslim blog diy watering can milk carton


Use a Milk Carton as a Watering Can!  All you need to do for this craft is simply insert some holes into the lid of the Milk Carton.  I used the nearest thing which was a craft knife - but you could probably also use a small screwdriver or a large needle to do this.

There are so many things that you can do with empty Milk Cartons. Here are a few ideas of things I do personally:
  • Cut in half and use as a funnel
  • Cut in half and use as storage container
  • Use to store used oil to throw away (no oil down the drains!)
  • Cut and made into a peg holder on washing line (my friend does this!)
  • Store powdered foods
  • Use as a juice carton (for diluted juice)
 I am sure there are many many more ways - I will try to share photos with other ideas in future posts inshallah.

  8. I am so glad this worked for you!!! I tried with a gallon jug, using a nail to make large holes and could not get the water to flow without squeezing the bottle flat. Holes, container of water -- what could be wrong???? When I saw your post, I was inspired to try again with the smaller jug and a knife. Same result. :-( I feel so challenged, but I'll keep trying - lol! Thanks for linking on Busy Monday. Hope to see you again.

    1. Not sure why it is not working for you :(
      I have done this a few times and has worked fine for me - Maybe it depends on the type of plastic used for the cartons!
