Skull Fountain 
Drilled an electrical cable hole in the cauldron positioned so cauldron would still sit flat, and silicone caulk to seal the hole to be watertight.  Tried caulk to glue the hand to the rim.

The fountain pump suction cups wouldn't stick to the plastic, so used silicone caulk to anchor to bottom so it wouldn't float up in the punch.

Skull fountain assembled, but leaked so resealed with more silicone. Also the seal wasn't good enough between the PVC and the fountain spout, so tubing will be required.

After adjusting the mix to less carbonation since that affects pump performance, the Skull Fountain worked great for awhile with blood-red cran-raspberry juice punch, but the neck brace shifted, spilling the sticky head contents onto the patio...next year will see a better brace system!
