How To Make A Bird Bath - For Free!


After you read this you may do just what I did - slap yourself right on the forehead and say, "Why didn't I think of that?!!!" My MOM is the one who thought of this, so all the credit to you, Mom!
After seeing a colorful, ceramic, *expensive* bird bath online, she realized she had something very similar right in her china cabinet that she never used. She put it in the garden, perched on a stepping stone, and "Ta Da!" Free, beautiful bird bath!
We all surely must have a lovely ceramic bowl or vintage glass baking dish that we could put on an old stump, inverted flower pot, or garden table and make the birdies a nice cool spot. The best thing is, it is so easy to bring inside to wash! More photos on my website, including my mom's adorable doggie, Reggie, who recently saved her from a house fire - Reggie is our hero! http://www.wecallitjunkin.com/diy-birdbath-for-free/
