I am soooooo excited to share this project with you all. My dad and I made this diy garden fountain together for my birthday present a few years ago. Since we moved the following January, it has been sitting in a box. I found the box and re-assembled the fountain and thought that this would be exactly the type of project that YOU all would love as much as I do! So here it goes…this tutorial is a reassembly but you can get the idea!
Here is a step by step tutorial on how to create your own DIY Garden Infinite Fountain.
- Large Decorative or colored pot
- smaller cheap plastic pot that will fit inside of the first pot when upside down
- 2 cheap plastic pot drip pans (as I like to call them)
- small water pump
- small screws/nuts (1/4” by 1/2” long)
- 1/2” plastic tubing
- 1/2” plastic tubing tee
We started off with a large red plastic pot. (You want the pot to be made of something you can easily drill through.) We drilled a hole about 2 inches below the top of the pot, just below the inside lip. We simply drilled several holes next to one another, just large enough to fit the plug through from the water pump.
The cheap plastic pot used for the inside, will be flipped over inside the red pot. The pump will be inside of it. So to make sure water can get to the pump, we need to drill a bunch of holes in the cheap plastic pot (green pot) so that the water can easily get to the inside.
At this point we realized we needed a hole in the green pot for the cord of the pump to come through because our green pot fit nicely in the red pot leaving no extra room at at the bottom for the cord. So we just poked it through one of the holes in the cheap green pot! Pretty Easy.
