DIY Rain Chain (2 ways)

As you may remember from the post I did on rain chains a while back, I am a little obsessed with them. My goal is to eventually replace most (if not all) of the downspouts on my house with one of them.

I had seen this one on amazon* and really liked the idea of having the leaves hanging from the chain. But I didn’t want to spend as much as they are charging and didn’t need one that long.

So I decided to make my own, and I’m really happy with the way it turned out! Read on to get the instructions for a DIY rain chain.

      Thanks, Debbie! It really wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, so I’m sure you’ll have no problem making one, too 🙂

    How long was the finished chain when using 20 ft of tubing and using broom stick sized “links”?

      It was a little longer than 5 feet…which was just the right length for hanging over a rain barrel from the eaves on the first story of my house.
