How to Make a Barrel Compost Tumbler Project

How to make a barrel compost tumbler project. A barrel compost tumbler will help you to turn over your compost material adding oxygen so it will break it down faster so that you can use it quicker.

If the plastic barrel you have chose to make this project with is a light color, it would be best to paint it a dark green, brown or black color.

Krylon spray paint works particularly well on plastic.

The darker colors tend to absorb more light and raise the temperature of your compost.

Keeping the compost material slightly moist will also help it to break down more quickly.
