Usually, I don't throughout the plastic bottles, I used to keep every bottle so that I can use them for crafting.
Here I got different sizes of bottles. I got an idea to make a fountain by using these bottles.
So to make the Waterfall Fountain using the Plastic Bottles the materials needed are:
- CFL Tube
- Glass Bucket
- LED Light
- 3W Submersible Pump
- 12V Adopter
- Bulb Holder
- Hot Glue
- Soldering Iron

Step 1: the Bottles
The first thing needed is the plastic bottles of 4 different sizes
I got 3 different sizes of bottles
Take a cutter and cut the bottom part of the bottles as shown in the imgs
Now with a soldering iron make few holes on the bottle plates
Then take a straw and cut them into small pcs
And stick the straw pcs on the holes of the plates

Step 2: The Bucket
Now we need another size of bottle plate
So, I got a transparent plastic bucket to use as the bigger plate.
In this plate, I used the middle part of the flexible straws which we can easily bend.
Step 3: The Water Chamber
Now take a glass bucket where the fountain will stand
To stand it I took a bulb holder and a small pc of PVC pipe
Make a hole on the pipe with a drill
Join the pipe with the holder with hot glue
And stick the holder on the glass bucket Connect a 3W submersible pump with the pipe
Step 4: Assembling
Now take a CFL tube and cut it into 4ft hight
Then clear the glass
And join it with the PVC pipe
Now with the soldering iron make a hole in the middle of all the plastic plates
And then attach them one by one with the tube as shown in the imgs.
Step 5: Final Touch...
Attach a LED under the bucket to give a glowing look.
Then connect a 12V adopter with it.
Put some stones in the bucket
And fill the bucket with water.
So the fountain is finally ready
Switch on the LED and the pump and enjoy the peaceful waterfall...
