DIY Concrete Garden Fountain

For those of you who have been reading this blog for a bit… then you know my love for concrete runs deep. Whether a planter or a sink or another planter… it’s the perfect materials for DIYers: inexpensive and chic! For this month’s DIY Housewives post, we’re all sharing garden inspiration so I wanted to remind you about this fountain I made (and ADORE).

The construction of this sounds more complicated than it was. In a nutshell… I took an old plastic globe to use as a mold, placed a small PVC pipe through the middle and filled it with concrete. I made a concrete base and then rested the whole rig on a bucket I buried in our garden with a mesh to keep the fountain from falling into the bucket.

We moved a few months after I got this up and running, but I’ve always wanted to recreate it because I LOVED how the water gurgled over the concrete orb. I photographed this when the garden was fairly new, but I have visions of the greenery creeping all over the orbs to make a lush concrete oasis.
