When it comes to decorating my backyard space, I’m a sucker for anything that enhances the natural beauty of what’s already there.

Mother Nature is already aesthetically pleasing on her own, so all of my decorations simply take advantage of the many enchanting elements of the outdoors.

One of my favorite natural decorations, both indoors and outdoors, is sunlight. Nothing compares to the warm light that filters in through the living room window on a hot afternoon, or the comfort of a sunset over a rippling ocean.

Suncatchers are an easy way to use sunlight to add color to your backyard space. This gardening-inspired suncatcher will add some sparkle to any outdoor space, just by using what nature’s already provided!

Check out the material list and instructions below to learn how to make this watering can suncatcher. Be sure to also watch the video for step-by-step directions.
