Watering Can Centerpiece

Last year we had a lot of fun making a watering can with fairy lights. This year, I decided to add a watering can centerpiece to our backyard for some additional fun. This can be used as garden decor or it can be used on a table. It’s just so adorable! This DIY watering can centerpiece definitely stands out!

Watering Can Centerpiece

I purchased a decorative watering can from a craft store. It still works as a normal watering can would, but it’s just a bit smaller. Whether you choose to use a decorative watering can or a real size one, the results will be equally as pretty.

Supplies Needed:

How to Make a Centerpiece with a Watering Can

  1. Optional: If you’ll be using the watering can as a planter, be sure to drill small drainage holes at the bottom of the can. If it’s just for short term use as a centerpiece on a table, the holes aren’t necessary.
  2. Place a small terra cotta pot upside down in the center of the watering can creating a stand

  3. Gently plant the flowers around the terra cotta pot filling the spaces in with extra potting soil (water if necessary)
