DIY Fountains to Make Your Yard Amazing This Summer!
Who doesn’t love the soothing sound of water. If you can’t live next to the ocean, the next best thing is building a fountain for your home! I created an EASY fountain out of a garden pot about 10 years ago and it’s always one of my popular posts this time of the year!
This is an easy weekend project. Turn any ceramic or resin pot into a fountain!
