This DIY Bird Bath is such an easy and fun backyard garden project. All you need is a couple of terra cotta pots, a saucer and an epoxy adhesive.
How to Make a DIY Bird Bath
My yard is a popular place for birds, squirrels and all sort of wild creatures. I’ve been wanting to give the birds living in my yard a water source for a while now, but I wasn’t finding quite the right one. My solution was this simple DIY Bird Bath.
2 large terra cotta pots of equal size
1 large terra cotta saucer
epoxy glue adhesive
paint and paint brush (optional)
How to Make a Bird Bath
1. To create the base of the bird bath, glue the open ends of the terra cotta pots together. Allow to set, according to the directions on your adhesive.
2. Glue the bottom of the saucer to the top of your base. Allow to set completely.
3. At this point you are finished with your project. Optionally, you can do as I have and add some decorative paint. I put a simple band of paint around the rim of the saucer. Because my epoxy seeped through a little when I glued my pots together, I added another band of paint to cover that up.
4. Place the bird bath in your yard, add water as needed, and enjoy watching the wild life in your yard thrive.
