My husband and I decided to build our own homemade compost tumbler using things we had around the house.

This affordable homemade compost tumbler makes good quality compost for your garden.

I wanted one of those nifty (and expensive) compost
tumblers, but the price of the product always stopped me in
my tracks. So my husband and I decided to build our own
homemade compost tumbler using things we had around the house. We
found a plastic trash can and drilled holes all over the
can. We also drilled four holes in the rim of the lid and
secured it with four nuts and bolts.

I just add my compost ingredients to the can and mix them
by kicking the can over and turning it. Our tumbler was
cheap to make and is easy to use. Best of all, we have
finished, usable compost in several weeks.
