    Use clay flower pots. Large pot on bottom upside down. Stack smaller and smaller pots as you go up. Put the tray to the largest pot up right on top. Fill with water. You can paint the pots the color you want. Make sure your paint is safe for the birds. I would paint the inside of the tray a sky blue or a seafoam gree

    Any clay, glass or metal bowl will work. If you want it off the ground, use a plant stand. But whatever you do, the birds will appreciate the water. Just keep it clean and filled every day. I have a few bowls on the ground, for quails, robins and small animals.

    For a small bird bath, turn a plunger up side down and stick handle in the ground.
    Make a sign out of wood, paint. "The little dipper" or something like that.
    Could also use for a bird feeder.

    My neighbor is Japanese, and you should see the perfect grid she lays out each yr. for her garden. She puts an old concrete birdbath top on the stump of a tree which was removed yrs. ago. Nifty idea.

    I'm about to make one with a bright red ceramic plate from Walmart. regular eating plate will glue it to a couple of PVC pipes maybe 3 if 2 in the ground is not steady enough. My goal is to attract birds and butterflies so you only one it to be 1" deep with some pebbles on one side to make it shallower.

    Any bowl, deep plate, old sink or even a bundt cake pan will work. You can use a tomato cage, table leg, decorative fruit hanger, upside down plant pots etc as a base.
