Mosaic Tile Birdbath Using Recycled DVDs

Have an old birdbath that could use a face lift? Here's an easy way to add some color to your garden and recycle some of those old DVDs too! (PLEASE NOTE: I've had a lot of people mention CDs, which were NOT used for this project. I used DVDs, which will give you a different result.) Be sure to stop by my blog so you can get all the details on the products and methods I used. Before you know it, you'll be creating some stunning artwork for your garden too!
Time: 8 Hours Cost: $45 Difficulty: Moderate

    The effect is great, MMDIY! Was it difficult getting the pieces so evenly cut? It is so artistic. Bravo!

    Love that idea! It be nice if more was made for the rest, but why not use up the clear pieces for the rest and see how that looks?

    Hi Lorraine, I had that happen on a few of mine too. I didn't use any of the clear pieces, nor the other side where the shiny stuff had peeled off. Don't forget to spray the cut pieces before you start glueing them down, or the shiny stuff will come off

    Your bird bath is so very beautiful. I'm hoping I can find dvds at the thrift store. The base might be pretty if you took several shade of green, some yellow some brown and just a touch of red and blue just for an accent. Accrylic is what I would use. A
