DIY Rain Chains
Time Required: Under 2 hours
Charming and functional, rain chains are an alternative to downspouts. Unlike downspouts, however, they are more like outdoor sculptures. Place them where guests can see your new work of art.
A well-placed rain chain directs water from the roof so the ground below doesn’t erode or collect water. Place a rain chain at every corner of your house.
Measure the distance from your roof or gutter to the ground for chain length.
Choose a chain that will fit through the hole of the clay pots.
Tie the end of the chain in a knot. Thread the other end through a pot. Measure 1’ up the chain and tie another knot. Repeat until you have 1’ of chain left.
