If you already knew what a ballcock is — you are much smarter than us! Crafter-extraordinaire Kelly Wilkinson, of Make Grow Gather, came up with this awesome little project using this plumbing device that was invented by (no joke) Thomas Crapper. Kelly knew that for the bargain price of $6.99, she could create something cool with the little copper ballcock. She cut off the top, and glued it to the bottom, to create a little vessel for small plants, pens or flowers.

We've just posted the abbreviated instructions here. For the complete how-to visit Make Grow Gather's Flickr instruction set. Be sure to check the project archive for other inspired crafts.
