Solar Bird Bath
I found an old platter and a large vase at a second hand shop and decided to create a solar light bird bath for my garden. Here's how!
We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
Materials I used for this project:
This is the glass platter
And this is the vase I found.
These are the solar lights that I really like
This is what the lights look like close up.
I put a fair amount of sand in the vase to make sure it won't tip and it also adds a nice coastal effect to the bird bath.
I covered the bottom of the light so that sand will not get in with the battery
I watered down some elmers glue to hold the sand in place
I spread the glue into a top layer so the sand doesn't shift easily and added the light
Also added some shells for decoration...it is coming along!
Then I glued the platter onto the vase with E6000 and placed a solar fountain in it.
This birdbath serves as a fountain during the day and as a decorative light at night. I hope you like it as much a s I do!
