DIY Watering Can Garden Art Piece
- Metal watering can with detachable watering rose
- 30 gauge florist wire
- Beads used as a wire backing
- Assorted pre-strung crystal beads
- Shepherd's hook for hanging the watering can
- The first step is to detach the watering rose from the watering can, mark where you want the top of the design, and thread florist wire to hold the beads.
- Thread 30-gauge florist wire through the front of watering rose, starting at the center.
- Pull thread through the back of spout and use a large crystal bead as a backing so it doesn't fall out.
- Continue threading wire through the front, concentrating on the inner holes for best water effect
- Take your largest beads and hang from the center hole using the metal wire to attach. Cut extra wire.
Is there a pattern to follow when stringing the beads?
- Yes, to create effect of realistic water flow, concentrate the larger beads in the center and surround outer area with more dainty beads
- Water flow is strongest in the center of the spout
- The outer area has more sprinkles of water represented by small beads
