This instructable, i will show you how to make a water bottle water spout for gardening, or anything else you can think of.

Step 1: Things You Will Need

Picture of Things You Will Need

-You can use any size bottle that can hold water. You may also use cans and other containers, i prefer gatorade or g2 bottles, something thick.
-A drill with a small and big(optional) drill bit or an ice pick

Step 2: Drilling

First, drill out 6-8 small holes on one side, on the opposite side if you wish, varying the size, and to stay green, use a hand drill, not electric.

If u didn't already know, you may need 1 hole on the back to equalize pressure with the cap on, you can also use this hole for potted plants

Step 4: Finishing Touches

To make it fancy, sand the holes to make it smooth. Maybe you can do this a couple of times to get the hang of it. I also made one out of a 64 fl oz juice container

The way I do this is much more barbaric. (=

1 Find a water bottle.
2 Filll with water.
3 Walk to the nearest concrete driveway or brick wall.
4 Smack water bottle against ground or brick wall.

This should result in numerous small holes much like a watering can.

I don't think this saves any energy because you would never buy something like this.

Yeah but assuming you manually drill the holes (with a corkscrew or something) you would be saving the plastic bottle from it's grave.

PS/ and also if you stick them in the freezer you can put them in hanging baskets so it acts as a slow release instead of saturating and overflowing your basket. so there you go your saving the planet twice! nice one:)

wait a minute, how do i put water up there when there are holes drilled in it

theburn7 (author)chalky2008-06-23

good idea, make that an instructable

This is extremely intuitive. Instead of paying $5.00 for a watering can, you can recycle your bottles and make your own. Great idea!

you can also use big huge orange juice containers, perfect for the job
