I originally made a pouring teapot and tea cup display for my yard. I decided to upgrade it with a challenge from Hometalk and the inspiration from a Hometalk post (https://www.hometalk.com/4030946/tea-pot-garden-feature-tutorial)

Measure your copper pipe mark with a sharpie where you would like to cut it.  We cut the pipe at 34".

We used a copper tube cutter to cut the pipe where we wanted it to be cut.

    I really like this! I happen to have an old teapot that I had previously used for my small pond. I might have to do this but try making it a water feature!

    Thanks for the inspiration!
