With Nothing But An Old Kettle and Some Pipes!

Those who think that fountains should be a medieval piece of monolithic stone spewing water ever upwards couldn’t be more wrong. It turns out that old tableware and a bunch of kitchen utensils are perfect for putting together a fountain or a bird bath.

How do you make one? The first thing you need to do is install a solid base, like a barrel with two pipes attached: one a little bit higher for the kettle and one lower, under the plate. The lower pipe will also serve as a support for the plate, the water from the plate will stream down the pipe into the barrel.

Make a hole in the bottom of the metal kettle. Then the kettle is stuck at an angle onto the upper metal pipe.

A metal stand in the form of a small cross is made on top of the lower pipe to support the plate. The only thing left to do is to put the whole contraption in the barrel, connect the pump to the fountain and fill the barrel with water.

What you get in the end is a fantastic fountain that can never get bored looking at.
