So I have a thing for birdbaths. I admit it. It's not something I'm ashamed of but, yes, I do have a problem. Every time I come home from a thrifting expedition my haul always seems to include things that I can use to make into birdbaths. I just can't help myself.
Here's my latest example.
Here's what I started with. A wrought iron candle holder (it's upside down in the photo), a ceramic base (not sure what it really is), a glass coaster, and a glass bowl. The cost of all these items was $1.75.
I gave everything a good cleaning and then primed the base and the wrought iron candle holder with Tremclad Spray Primer. Then I sprayed both with a light purple Krylon.
I balanced the glass coaster on the top of the candle holder, on the three arms, and adhered it with the GOOP glue. I then left it to dry until the next day. I had to make sure the coaster was very securely attached before I glued the glass bowl on to the coaster.
Here it is in the garden. I love the purple!
Since the bowl isn't very deep, it can easily be used as a bird feeder. We don't have squirrels in our area so that wouldn't be a problem.
But for now it's a birdbath. Apparently, this girl's garden can't have too many. LOL. (By the way, the birds love me.)
