Unscrew all covers from the upper halves of the bottles so that the water can rush. If you want a more pronounced spray effect, then you can make holes in the lids with a nail and a hammer.


And at the bottom of the bottles you need to make cuts so that they can work as a funnel through which water will flow.


Step 3


Another important detail of the water wall is the guide, this part intercepts all the water and returns it back to a large container, so that you can reuse the same water repeatedly. In order to make a guide, you need to cut off the bottom of the plastic cups or bottles, then cut them in half, along the long side. Fix both halves together with duct tape to make one long guide.
