I had to share this with you, I saw it on my garden tour this summer. It was kind'a tucked in a few flowers and I was standing there staring at it, wondering what in the world it was made of, then my mother came over and said - a bundt pan and an old jello mold! Isn't that cute/funny?? Water spilled out the top.

That IS cute!
...and we all have jello molds and bundt pans way in the back of the cabinet that we never use! (I know I do!)
I have a heart shaped mold hanging on my kitchen wall right now that would make a neat little fountain thingy! [grin]

Thanks for the idea! [thumb]

That's such a clever idea and I bet the birds, bunnies, squirrels and critters love the lower level. I can just see all of us tearing apart our kitchen cabinets looking for old, unused things we could use in the flowerbeds. [Big Grin]

Was at the thrift shop last night and bought a $2 bundt pan just for this.... now I have to find other things to build it... didn't find a pan large enough to hold it at the shop last night, but will eventually. Something to do in my spare time this winter....

Thanks for sharing!

I love that idea... it is very, very cute.
Has anyone here successfully made one work yet? I'm curious, I know it will take a pump, but am unsure about how to go about recurculating the water and stuff.

Hehehe, I know i have the bundt pan, and the jello mold.. LOL, Peggy

Well, I caved.

I bought that bundt pan just for this project but then - like Peggy pointed out - I realized I didn't know how to put it together. When the lack of how-to hit me (couldn't find anything online either, unbelievable!), I plopped my chocolate mint in it instead. Now I'm going to collect deep cake pans and put chocolate mint in them - save myself the calories of the real cake, and the headaches of runaway mint later on.

Now I need to find a nice pitcher for the lemon mint!

[perplexed]

Yes, I do believe I have lost my marbles at last.

I am guessing that under that cute lil contraption is a buried 5 or 10 gallon bucket, that is holding the water for circulation. That is how I was going to do something similar to this. Burry the bucket and place the water and pump in to it, then run the water tubing up the pans and make sure that the water can drain back in to the bucket some how, for recirculation.
