Take two circles pcs of foamboard and join them together with super glue.

Give a cut on the middle of the circle and attach them at the bottom of the pot

Place a plastic pipe in the middle, so the pots can move easily.

Then attach the other pot with it as shown in the imgs.

Take 2 nuts and stick them on both ends of the pots. So the hourglass is ready.

Step 2: Stand to Hold

Now we need to make a stand to hold it.

To make the stand take 3 pcs of PVC pipe and 2 pcs of PVC L-Joints

Make a hole with the drill in the middle of all the PVC pipes

Now take a plastic nozzle and attach it on the top PVC pipe

Take a plastic pipe and pass it through an L-Joint

Join the PVC pipes with the L-joints and the stand is ready.

Step 3: The Base

Now we need a base to store the water, so I got this plastic tray

Take a pc of wood make a hole with the drill on both ends and place it on the tray

Join the PVC stand with the wood holes.

Step 4: Final Assembling

Now take the plastic pots and pass a Metal String through the small pipe on the middle of the two pots

Then hang it by tying the metal string with the PVC pipes.

Take a 3W Submersible Water Pump and connect it with the plastic pipe which is connected to the top PVC pipe. Connect the pump with a 5V Adapter.

Stick a magnet in the wood just under the nut, to stop the pot when it will rotate down.

Now its ready to play.

Fill the tray with water and switch on the pump.

Enjoy the lovely Hour Glass Water Feature.
