Sounds like you are trying to work with something you already have but you didn't share nor did you tell us anything about your landscape. Can't help without details.
Hi sherry! Could you perhaps post a picture? That would help us help you greatly! xoxox
Use it for a flower pot stand.
I put a gazing ball on a birdbath base that the top was broken.
Depending on your base--- I use old light fixture I find at Good will or bowls. My base is a lamp stand.
Hope the pictures came through
I used construction adhesive and glued a sun dial to an old bird bath base. You could pick up a 12 or 14 inch pot saucer, paint it, and attach that to get a new birdbath. Or use a smaller pot saucer to hold a gazing ball..
