  • Place the 4 (18-inch) pieces side by side and stick the masking tape at both ends, and then slowly turn the pieces.
  • Attach the 4 small acrylic pieces with super glue on top of every 18-inch acrylic pieces.

Step 2:

Now we need an acrylic sheet of 3-inch height and 3.8-inch width. (Sheet 1)

  • Make a hole at one corner of the acrylic sheet with a drill to attach the water pump with it.
  • Take a 3/4 inch pipe and make a small cut with a scissor and insert an electric wire through the pipe, then seal the cut with Araldite Epoxy Resin, and let it dry for at least 1 hour.
  • Put Silicon Sealant inside of the long square acrylic sheets at one corner and place the pipe with the electric wire onto it, and let it dry for at least 2-3 hours.

Step 3:

Now we need an acrylic sheet of 3.8-inch height and 3.8-inch width (Sheet 2) with a notch at one corner of the sheet, so the pipe passes through.

  • Attach the sheet with Silicon Sealant on the 4 small acrylic sheets which were placed in the body of long square acrylic sheets on top.
  • Then, with a soldering iron make few small holes on the sheet, to form rainwater drops.

Step 4:

Now we need an acrylic sheet of 4-inch height and 4-inch width (Sheet 3).

  • Take a blue waterproof LED strip, cut the LED into 4 small pieces.
  • Take 2 LED pieces, make a parallel connection, and attach them on the acrylic sheet 3.
  • Turn the sheet and spray with a silver colour. (optional)
  • Take a Push Terminal and make a connection with the LEDs and the electric wire.
  • Attach the sheet 3 with Silicon Sealant on top of 18-inch long square acrylic sheets and let it dry for 2-3 hours.

Step 5:

Now take the acrylic sheet of 3-inch height and 3.8-inch width. (Sheet 1)

  • Attach the Water Pump with hot glue on the sheet 1.
  • Put a plastic plant inside the18-inch long square acrylic sheets.
  • Then attach the sheet 1 with super glue on the 2 small acrylic sheets which were placed in the body of long square acrylic sheets at the bottom.
  • Take 2 LED pieces, make a parallel connection and attach them on sheet 1.
  • Connect the LEDs with the pump and electric wire together and connect them with a Push Terminal.
  • Then take a 12 Volt LED Adopter and connect it with the same Push Terminal.

Step 6:

  • Now take a Paper Sticker and cover the masking tape area.
  • Then take a bucket for water container and spray with a silver colour (optional)
  • Cut the lid of the bucket and place the long acrylic sheets on the bucket.
  • Fill the bucket with water.
  • Then finally plug in the wire connected with the 12 Volt LED Adopter and switch it on.

    That looks really nice. If you get a chance, if you could add titles to each of your steps it would make it easier for readers to scroll between sections of your project.
