Repurposed Glass Lid Hanging Bird Bath

30 Minutes

A glass lid without a casserole dish is the perfect shallow bird bath waiting to happen!
Please check out my full tutorial here for each and every step!
Clear glass casserole dish lids- cheap, sturdy, and perfect for repurposing!
First step - using link chain from the hardware store, create a loop (a "bracelet", if you will) and place it over the handle.
Connect four same-length chains to each "side" of the loop.
Gather the four long chains up...
And hang from your favorite tree. Add a bit of water and Ta-da- a simple, easy to clean bird bath!

      Hi, Cynthia! It depends on how long you want it to hang. But I probably used less than 5 feet of chain for this one. (I don't recall the exact amount because this project is several years old now.)

    What keeps the chain that you put around the handle from coming loose
