DIY Bird Bath
Click below to see a list of supplies you'll need and steps to take to make your own bird bath.
Collect your supplies (supplies listed below). And decide on a paint color or stickers to use to decorate your bird bath.
After cleaning your pot, begin applying paint to the edges of your pot. You can use paint or markers, etc. Remember, there will be water so be sure not to use washable paint.
Attach your saucer to your pot base and hold firmly for thirty seconds. You can put something heavy on top of it to hold it in place overnight while the E6000 dries. If you want to paint your saucer, be mindful that water soluble paint will wear down quickly after you add your bird bath water. Ensure that the paint if non-toxic, as it will leech into the bird's water.
Enjoy the cute sights of watching your backyard birds take drinks and wash their wings. Ensure that you change out the water every few days to keep mosquitos at bay.
