This summer we discovered "bunch o balloons” (self-filling water balloons), and boy are they a bunch of fun! The nephews/grands enjoyed many water balloon fights with them!
We discovered once the balloons were gone, we were left with plastic water hose fittings which looked like they’d make an awesome DIY fountain. Check out the video above to see the fountain come together!
An old metal serving tray was found in mom’s garage which fit perfectly into the top of the pot. We drilled a hole in the middle of the tray for the balloon hose to fit through and drilled additional holes though the metal top for water to drain. The tray was then painted with the same paint as the pot.
Then we sealed the hole so it was leakproof, we used Sugru, which is a waterproof, moldable glue.
And this fountain looks really cool at night!
