Try this inexpensive DIY indoor water fountain project that’s easy to make. A small tabletop fountain adds a nice water element to your home.
Indoor fountains are so relaxing and pretty. I know Feng Shui talks about having a water element in the house but I just think it makes a beautiful decor piece.
Today I’m showing you how to make this super easy, very inexpensive indoor water fountain. The only thing that would make it better would be a switch on the electrical cord so that you could easily turn it on and off. I did find these remote control outlet switches online that would probably work great. However, that would no longer make this pretty little fountain super cheap. Still, it’s an option.

- Remote control outlet switch (optional)
How to Make an Indoor Water Fountain
Step 1 – Arranging the water pump
Place the pump, especially the nozzle where you want the water to flow. I have mine off to the side but I think it would also look good in the middle.
Step 2 – Hide the pump and cord with decorative rocks
Arrange the decorative rocks all around the bowl. Stack them up around the pump and cord to hide them from view.
Step 3 – Add water to fill.
Add water to just cover the rocks. You need enough water to fill the pump; if it is a submersible pump it can even cover the pump.
Then plug in the water fountain and enjoy.
Here’s a quick video showing you how to put it all together.
So simple, yet so beautiful. I think this would make a great gift.
