Making birdbaths for Christmas gifts

16K Views
I am back from Michigan and enjoying the beautiful Texas weather. Working in the yard and whipping it back into shape after my three month absence. My children have inhereted my love of gardening so I have decided to make them birdbaths for their gardens.

    HI do you have any suggestions for a base and how I might attach one?

      @Julia Hammond I made a base once. I had a wooden porch pillar that was hollow. When I made my birdbath I added a "Post" made of the cement to the base of the leaf. It was made to fit into the Pillar. I never used it as I sold it immediately. Maybe

    How long did it take for the cement to dry thoroughly?

      @Susan I left it for a week before I unwrapped it. A month before I sealed it but it is all guess work on my part. :)
