The crafty DIYer acquired an Idooka Round Outdoor Fire Pit Bowl and Aisitin Solar Fountain Pump from Amazon for the project, first filling the fire pit bowl with a handful of excess white pebbles from their garden, followed by enough water to submerge them completely. Then, they simply placed the solar pump into the water so that it floats about pleasantly, continuously spouting a tranquil squirt of water into the air.
