Milk Jug Watering Can – Hiland Dairy

Milk Jug Watering Can

Don’t have a watering can for your plants and flowers? Me neither! Instead of running out and buying one, I thought I’d just make one using a repurposed Hiland Dairy Milk jug. The hardest part about this craft is figuring out how to decorate it. Let’s get started!
