Wishing Well

Wishing Well

"I took an empty peanut can for the well. A piece of cardboard to make the base. I gathered sticks of all sizes from my yard. The bucket I had on-hand. I measured each stick, cut and glued them together for the sides. I had to put the corner rows of sticks on the top to cover gaps from the round can. I'm unsure at this time how I will use it. I just wanted to make one."

  1. took an empty peanut can, placed it on cardboard to measure for the base.

  2. I gathered sticks from the yard, measured to fit the base.

  4. I continued gluing the sticks around until the can was covered.

  5. I measured to longer sticks for my post, and cross post

  6. wrapped the rope around the cross stick, and hung my bucket.

  7. To cover any gaps I used small sticks cut to fit the gap.
