LOCKDOWN is the perfect time to to flex those DIY muscles, and the latest trend has seen people making their own water fountains.

Taking to the Facebook group Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK, one mum shared her amazing water feature that cost her just £25 to make.

To assemble the fountain she began by placing a plastic pot filled with water inside a larger plant pot.

She then placed a ring of chicken wire around the outside of the plastic pot, and places an off-cut of the chicken wire over the water pot to sit the solar fountain on, which she picked up for £14.99 on Amazon.

She then filled the surrounds with slate so that the top is completely covered before placing three silver balls, costing £9.99 from Home Bargains, on the top.

Once the fountain is switched on the water should just flow over the top of the balls creating an attractive water feature.


The mum was not the only one to try the trend, with social media flooded with copycat versions of the fountain.

While she already had her slate lying around, others revealed they were able to pick some up for £2.75 at Home Bargains.

Meanwhile others have added some fake foliage and garden ornaments to their fountains to give them a unique twist.
