First of all, exactly what is a rain chain? A rain chain is an option to a closed rain gutter. It carries water from your roof gutter down to the ground, where it can drain safely away from the house. A rain chain is made from a variety of different materials, realistically turning a boring rain gutter or metal chain into a pleasing and interesting water feature. Now that you know what it is, let’s see how you can make one! Here are 8 easy-to-make rain chain projects for any homeowner.
