Build your own water feature

The weather is nice here in Phoenix AZ, so it is a good time to do a project outside. A simple water feature can enhance the appearance of any outdoor space. A water feature is relaxing and can bring the space together. Here are instructions on how to make a feature out of a large flower pot.

Material’s needed:

A round flower pot at least 8 inches wide, small fountain pump kit with tube, something to decorate the inside, and Tape Measure


  1. Read the directions for the small fountain pump
  2. Wash and rinse the flower pot thoroughly with dish soap
  3. Place the pump in the center of the pot and press firmly until the suction cups attach
  4. Cut the tube of the pump so it sits an inch below the water once the pot is filled
  5. Fill the pot with decorative supplies
  6. Add water to the pot until it is 2 inches below the rim
  7. Place the pot on a stable surface near an outlet and plug it in

Have fun doing this and check back with us later for more things to uplift your living spaces.
