Step 1: Gathering Materials and Tools
-One fish bowl (about a gallon, but no smaller)
-One Plastic container (it should fit over the pump and be able to fit inside the fish bowl)
-60 GPH Pump(I got mine at home depot)
-1 FT of 1/2 in PVC pipe
-Connector for 1/2 PVC pipe
-Blow Torch (optional)
-Nail Punch (optional)
-Hot Glue Gun w/Hot Glue
Step 2: Painting Part 1 (optional)
Now that you have just painted the bowl, let it dry wile you work on the rest of the fountain.
Step 3: Preping the Plastic Container
Step 4: Cutting and Painting the PVC
(optional) Place the PVC 1/2in connector on top of the 1/2in PVC pipe. It should fit snugly.
Now place the PVC pipe on the news paper already lying out and Spray paint it the color you choose.
LET DRY FOR ABOUT AN HOUR BEFORE GOING ON
Step 5: Putting It All Togeather
Now using the small pebbles, spread them around in the bowl until it fills up to just below the rim of the fish bowl, but make sure to not get them in the plastic container, its o.k. if a few get inside though.
Now fill about 3/4 of the fountain with either distilled water or bottled water(DO NOT USE TAP WATER!!!)
Step 6: (OPTIONAL) the Light Bulb
Go to that one and use the first 7 steps to hallow out a light bulb.
After that is done use your blow torch to heat up the the glass on the light bulb.(slowly bring the light bulb to the flame or else it will break. use a pair of pliers to hold on to the bottom of the light bulb. also use eye protection) Wait until the glass turns orange, then use your nail punch to push the orange glass into the light bulb. Wait until there is a hole, then remove the light bulb from the flame and let it cool.
Now that, thats done, use hot glue to glue the light bulb to the large opening on the PVC pipe.
