Well, I found another one online and emailed the maker. She sent me directions right away. Here they are, happy creating!
The watering can fountain was so simple to make. I took a wooden dowel and
attached the watering can to that. You can either do that with heavy-duty
screws, or some other method. I didn't want to puncture my can, so I used
liquid nails to glue the dowel to the can.
Then when it's all dry and ready to go, I just stick the dowel in the ground.
You could probably just take a short shepherd's hook and hang the watering can
from that, if you don't want the hassle of attaching the can to the dowel.
You'll need some kind of pump for the fountain. You can do a search online for
"fountain pump" and you'll get tons of hits. There are quite a few places
online to buy from. Also, your local pet store might have some pumps. I know
Home Depot and Lowes carry them, as well. You'll need to figure out how much
lift you'll need. In other words, you'll need to measure from where your pump
will be placed to how high up the water will go. For me that's about 3 feet or
so. If your pump doesn't have enough lift, it won't be able to push the water
up that high. So make sure you get the proper pump.
Also, you'll need airline tubing. Your pump might come with it. You'll run the
tubing from the pump (which you will put in your basin full of water)
up to the
watering can. I just ran mine out of my tub and up the dowel and into the can.
Then I used a strand of fake greenery to hide the tubing and dowel. It works
Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.
