Add a whimsical touch to your garden by making this beautiful DIY project idea by Creativity Hero on YouTube! Learn how to easily build this fountain that creates an illusion of a floating faucet, it’s simpler and easier to make than it looks, so don’t be intimidated, and follow the instructions written down below instead. You should also watch the video tutorial for more details and see how it is exactly done.
Drill a small hole at the back of the bucket, then cover the wire with black heat shrink tubing making sure to leave about 2cm (approx. 0.7 inch) of the wires exposed, and shrink the tubing using a lighter. Run the cord through the bucket, then cover the other wires with heat shrink tubing, and solder the red wire to the shorter tip of the DC power jack, and the black wire to the longer tip of the jack, shrink them using a lighter. Drill some small holes around the rim of the tube near the edges, then sand the edges well, and apply 2-part epoxy to the mouth of the faucet before adhering to the tube.
Let it cure for 5 minutes until perfectly glued, then apply some hot glue to the nozzle of the pump, and adhere the other end of the tube to the nozzle. Dab more glue around the tube and the nozzle to hold them in place, then once dried, position the tube inside the bucket, and start filling the bucket with rocks. Seal the hole at the back of the bucket and secure the cord in place, then fill the bucket with as much water as you want, and power it up.
