Tea Pot Bird Bath

Christy 12.03.15
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!

    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

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

    @Brenda Shelton-Hubbard, I used Gorilla Glue. So far it's holding up in the Texas heat. Someone else said she uses GE Silicon II and to sand the surface. I plan to try that on future projects.

    What did you use to put them together? I have tried using glue for glass before and it does not work (lightly sanding the glass first). Suggestions?
