How to Make A Terra Cotta Plastic Bottle Fountain

How to Make A Terra Cotta Plastic Bottle Fountain | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

I recently went over to my old best friend’s house and she had one of the most amazing fountains I have ever seen on her porch. When I asked her where on Earth she got it and she said, to my complete amazement, that she had made it herself! I was completely dumbfounded, I said, you mean you are a fountain maker? She laughed and laughed, no far from it she said, then she pulled out her phone and showed me a Youtube video where she found this amazing idea. I couldn’t wait to get home and try this out. I started getting my materials together as soon as I pulled into my garage. The materials were all really straightforward and with a little digging and reorganizing of my old storage space in the garage I easily found everything I needed for this cool plastic bottle water fountain project.



  • 4 square-shaped water bottles (Fiji work well)
  • 1 terracotta plant tray (for the bottom)
  • 2 pieces of wood
  • A hot glue gun
  • glue sticks
  • 1 small water pump
  • plants (for decoration)


In the video, you will learn how to construct this awesome fountain with recycled materials you already may have lying around the garage or garden shed.
