Here are the instructions of how we made my tea pot fountain. Hope it helps with all of you who are interested!


Here is my tea pot fountain in full bloom.


We drilled a a hole in the tea pot and then threaded it. We attached flanges to a solid concrete block to support both the tea pot and the gold pan. The block is heavy…


We then built a support for the gold pan and dropped the unit into the whiskey barrel. We added a fountain pump and inserted tubing up through the tee on the bottom…


Add water and your done! The unit is free standing so it can be leveled and no holes are drilled in the whiskey barrel. I put it all away every winter and take it out


Last year we poured a concrete base that the whiskey barrel sits on so it doesn’t sink into the dirt.

One of the fun things about succulents is that they look terrific in all kinds of containers and they are easy to grow (even for those with “black thumbs”).   There are so many different shapes, sizes and colors of succulents that it’s easy to make a beautiful and unique succulent garden!  Here are some pretty indoor succulent container ideas for your home to inspire you.


You can use all kinds of containers for your succulents that coordinate with your decor. I made this succulent garden in some red and white transferware because I decorate with red and white (and transferware). I used a old soup tureen from the thrift store as the main planter.  The steps for making this succulent garden .
