Tea Pot Bird Bath

back yard ideas 5 days ago
I'm creating a Mad Hatter inspired garden, so I'll need lots of tea themed decor.

As a child, i loved the Disney movie "Alice in Wonderland". The idea of stumbling into an "un-birthday" party in the woods was enchanting. Now that I have my own garden, I'm dreaming of creating my own little space where my children and I can have parties and celebrate un-holidays together.

My first project: this tea party themed bird bath!

      Taylor Thank you! The key is to use a wide base, and put the larger items closer to the bottom.

    I make glass art sculptures from vases and plates and other odds and ends stacked as high as I can get them and use E6000nand it is great, no sanding and if I want a fast bond I put two pieces together than immediately pull them apart wait 2 or three

    This is what I use to glue all my glass yard ornaments together. Just make sure your pieces and very clean and dry. I've used it for a couple of years now and I've made a lot of pieces, they're all still together. I've made a couple of errors but no

      Fran Hopkins Yes, Fran. I live in the mountains of NC and we got down to 8 below this past winter, when I checked all my yard art a few weeks ago, it was all still tight as can

    Hello fellow San Antonian, ;-) I love your idea and have always wanted to try it, but that is as far as it went. Did you use Gorilla glue for both projects? The feeder & the stand? Thank you so much for sharing.

    Love both your ideas and the execution is professional-looking! Great color choice. My garden is my zen place - It's become a bird sanctuary. your amazing ideas inspire me to create a feeder where the cardinals can also feed.Their fat, wide beaks make it
