Gather your supplies.  We used the pot & plate sizes listed above, but you can use 10″-4″ plates with 6″-2 1/2″ pots in the arrangement of your choice.

Begin by painting the pots and plates with an acrylic paint.
TIP: If you opt for spray paint, be sure to coat everything in a base coat of acrylic first.  This will allow the spray paint to adhere to the porous surface more easily, preventing the need for 3-4 coats.

Once dry, disperse a significant amount of epoxy. Mix thoroughly per the instructions.

Using a craft stick, apply a generous amount of epoxy to the bottom of your largest clay pot. Turn the largest clay plate upside down and place the clay pot, glue side down, into the center of the plate.

Repeat this step with the smaller pot and plate.

    You should put that statement in your listing. Everything that is sold on the market for serving food is suppose to be food safe, it’s the law, let’s hope that it is.

      I don’t think it’s necessary to use epoxy to join these clay pots. You’re right about the need for it to be non-toxic to be a food safe item. It would be cute as a catch all or display stand as well.

    What a great idea for a bird bath!!!! I love using my old plates for bird seed but couldn't figure a way to hang it in a way that the birds would enjoy the seed! (we have very finicky birds!!) Now they can have both a bath and seeds and I could add a cover to protect it from the rain!!! TFS
