    Actually try gluing it with gorilla glue. They make clear glue now so try that or a silicone adhesive. Either may work for you to use it again

    Could you patch it? You could use the top part as a succulent planter in the garden and the bottom as a plant stand. I have don't that before with an old bird bath.

    Turn it into a fairy garden. Plant something that will hang over the broken part to camouflage it.

    I would glue them back together with a non water based glue and make sure you have the edges sealed real good and it should still be usable with a problem.

    You can try to use it to make a fairy garden, or a succulent garden.

    Hello Lucy; I have had this happen to me on more than one occasion!!
    Please visit Ace Hardware. I was just at one, yesterday...
    I saw a heavy duty glue that is clear. It is in a small can. It can be used for gluing the pieces back. The price is under $8.00. This glue was located next to caulking, in a tube.
    I am sorry that I do not have the name.
    I hope that this will help you!! Take Care!

    The pieces that broke off are a crumbled mess, so there's no way to glue it back. Also, this is a one-piece birdbath, so the top is attached.

    Mine cracked & no longer can be used as a birdbath. So I put small rocks around a tall flower vase with silk flowers in the top center. Very attractive.

    use it as a planter with trailing plants disguising broken parts...place smaller water container in center.

    I would try putting a low bowl type pot into it with trailing plants of your choice.

    I would leave it tipped over and plant in front of it so it looks like the plants are spilling out of it.

    Is it cement or plastic? I have recently purchased Gorilla Glue and mended a garden disc with it and so far so good. GG works on lots of things and comes in various sizes and price ranges.
