Fountain Making: A Simple Indoor Bamboo Fountain Design

Updated on November 18, 2012

We had just seen my two other indoor fountains. And since I had two water pumps, there's still one left. I'm running out of bamboos and at that time I don't know what design I should make. But then as I had finished the second fountain and had redo the last bamboo piece I had use, this left an unused piece and the idea kicks in.

I just decided first to try to see if this style I have in my head would make a nice, flowing water sound and so I connected both small left over pieces and plugged it in. And here's how it looks like. It is indeed simple and easy to make.

Items used:

For this much simplier indoor fountain, I had only used two left over pieces of bamboo, a bowl, decorative stones, the water pump and a straw.

I love this small water pump, just perfect for indoor fountain and just like the one I am using now on my first one, which is now in my room.

Showing here is the bamboo fountain being set up. With this one, I had set the water knob to full just to see how well this one would do with the flow rate. Then I put over the straw and the two pieces of bamboo. The first bamboo which was the base measures about 3 inches and the other one which makes the letter T is just a little bit shorter.

Decorative stones and water was added. But before I plug it in, I just wanted to show you the hole I made to the green bamboo piece on which the straw went through.

I had been careful making the hole to make sure the straw fits perfectly as I was using a different straw with this one which is a little bigger, a bubble tea straw.


And here goes the finished, easy to make simple indoor bamboo fountain. A design that just came up from two leftover pieces of bamboo. The water flows on both sides on the open end of the bamboo and makes a beautiful, relaxing sound.

And in case you tried this easy indoor bamboo fountain design and wanted to change or try another one, I'd say you can do so and just keep on using the same water pump. That's what I've been planning with the fountain in my room.

And with this cute letter T fountain, dad had updated my design and had made his version of it. I would show that on the next hub. And also, coming up is the shishi odoshi fountain.

      Thanks Peggy! ^-^' That's my main reason for creating my bamboo fountain as it helps me to fall asleep, and with stress too. Now I am enjoying making more fountains.

      The sound of water trickling onto rocks is so soothing. Nice to see how you created this simple indoor bamboo fountain. Up and interesting votes. Will share for people who might wish to create some indoor fountains using your idea.

      You have such a talent for creativity. Perhaps you should go into business for yourself.
