We partnered with the Flex Seal® Family of Products to create a DIY relaxing tabletop fountain! Let’s face it…we can all use a little zen in our lives!
Summer is in full swing and it’s the perfect time to get crafty with family and friends!
Flex Seal is a rubberized sealant spray coating available in 12 different colors! You might think of Flex Seal as the easy way to coat, seal and stop leaks fast! Have you seen the commercials?!? Since Flex Seal is waterproof, protects surfaces from corrosion and comes in a variety of vibrant colors we knew it would be the perfect match for our tabletop fountain!
We couldn’t just stop there…there’s also Flex Glue®! It’s a clear, strong, instant grab adhesive that can be used on dry or wet surfaces…a crafter’s dream come true!
Plastic Garden Dish
Rocks & Pebbles
Water Pump & Tube
2 Small Plastic Bowls
Spray Materials with Flex Seal Colors
-Place the garden dish, stones and rocks on a tarp in a well ventilated area. Shake well and spray items 8” to 12” from the surface using even sweeping motions and let dry! Tip: Read the entire can before spraying. Use a rubber mallet to carefully smash the large pieces of stone into smaller pieces.
Glue Together Main Fountain Feature
-Start to glue and layer the rock formation in a small mountain shape. Leave a hole in the top center of the rocks big enough for the tube of the water pump to sit in. Tip: When gluing, apply firm pressure continuously for a minimum of 30 seconds for instant grab to take hold.
Build the Fountain
-Put it all together inside the garden dish. Balance the rock formation on top of 2 small plastic bowls. Glue the water pump tube to the back of the formation so that the tube is facing towards the front of the fountain.
-Fill the garden dish with rocks and water. Plug in your fountain to see how it works! Tip: Adjust the formation as needed for the best water flow. Use smaller pebbles to guide the stream of water in the direction you want.
-Place faux plants in and around the fountain to help hide the tube and make it feel more tropical.
-Add a festive flourish with flamingos! Why? ‘Cause everyone loves flamingos!
We’re obsessed with how it turned out! It’s the tropical vacation we’re not able to take this year all in one fountain!
Crafter’s are always looking for new products and new ways to upgrade and elevate their DIYs. We’re excited to add Flex Seal into our crafting rotation!
