This old watering can has been sitting in our yard with no handle and a rusted spout for the longest time, but the body is sound--no holes! I went and looked at colorful shiny new cans and their colorful prices and thought...a handle...I could make a new handle--I can't solder, but as my grandmother would say, "where's there's a will there's a way!" So I relocated a beautiful black widow to a different home, got out some old ropes, some old long sneaker laces and a very strong flat piece of braid, one that I had for such a long time--never finding a use for--till now, so many years later, which makes me think of another saying, "waste not want not."
After tying some loose knots, bumbling with the ropes and having it all come slipping off the can more than a few times--(my daughter and granddaughter laughing at my attempts), I figured out a way to make it work.
A test run...notice the duck tape on the hose! hmmmm--A duck tape handle?...
It works! I also plugged up some rusted holes in the spout with that ugly foamy Gorilla Glue, to keep the dribble down to a minimum. My granddaughter took this picture!
