  • Stone leftover from another project and three galvanized trash can lids become a bird bath grouping! Another of my "use what you have" ventures! More pictures and directions at http://ourfairfieldhomeandgarden.com
  • Start by building a base. Add one level at a time while keeping it fairly level. This takes a few tries to keep it level and sturdy.
  • When the stacked stone is the height desired, add the galvanized lid. One down and two more to go!
  • The lids I had were different sizes so I made the bases larger or smaller to fit the lid. Also vary the heights to add interest.
  • Here's the tallest one filled and ready for customers!
  • Save out some stone to put in the top of each lid as a landing place for birds, to keep the lid in place if a larger bird or squirrel comes calling and for looks!
