I went to the Regional 4-H days and watched a Demo given on how to make a waterfall. The supplies included--a small water pump with clear tubing to transfer the water,purchased from Hobby Lobby,- a pot-liner for a large potted plant,- marker,- a can of spray-insulating foam,- a can of spray-spaint (the grey-colored textured type),- river rock.. Instructions: This will be done in stages as the foam will need to dry overnight as you build the layers. Place water pump into the liner, next to the rim. Using the marker, draw a semi-circle arond the pump leaving a 3 to 4 inch space. In the larger space, begin filling the area with two layers of the foam, let dry over night. When dry, place the clear plastic tubing in a diagonal position from the bottom of the liner, allow enough roomat the bottom to attatch the pump. You may need someone to hold the tubing in place as you begin layering the foam, or use toothpicks to hold in place. Finish layering the foam to the top of th!
e tubing, let dry ovvernight. Spray the entire unit with paint, dry. Attatch pump, add rocks, water, and you have a waterfall. wrote:
