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

Picture of 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

Step 5: Alright

There you have it, a bottle to water your garden with, one of the easiest instructables, and saves the energy of a computer being on for 40 minutes

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:)

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
