Rain Saver with Cherry Tomato Cans

Welcome to our DIY Rainwater Harvesting Project! Learn how to create a simple system to collect rainwater and nurture your garden sustainably. Let’s get started!


  • 5 Mutti Cherry tomato cans
  • Can opener
  • Acrylic paints / paintbrush
  • Pliers
  • Electrician scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Drill/screwdriver
  • Wooden wall or support or other material
  • Watering can

step 1

Take the 5 Mutti Cherry Cans and, using a can opener, remove the sharp inner top ring. Paint the cans with acrylic colors according to your taste.

step 2

Make a square/rectangular cut on each can using a drill/screwdriver and electrician scissors.

step 3

On one of the cans, also bend the upper ring to create a spout using pliers.

step 4

Using hot glue, attach the cans to a vertical support (preferably a wooden wall) following a “cascade” pattern, with the can with the spout as the last one, allowing rainwater to flow down into the various cans and finally, with the last step in the can with the spout, be collected in a watering can underneath.
