    I would use a clear outdoor epoxy.

    I love E6000 for things like this. It's flexible but very strong.

    I have been working on a window project that uses odd pieces of glass and I used Aleen's Clear gel..Tacky Glue...works great..just make sure it's clear cause they also make a regular and it's cloudy...no bueno on glass on glass...

      Thank you for your suggestion. I will try it. I would be interested in knowing if the glue is water soluble because if it is that won't work for a bird bath. It is a wedding gift I wouldn't want it to fall apart

    Use GOOP marine glue. It's for outdoors and glues anything. Fast find on Amazon..............

    I'd use E6000. It will stand up to the weather and the water - just let it cure for at least 24 hours before you put it outside or add the water to it.

    Clear, waterproof silicone was recommended to me at Lowes

    The absolute best is E6000 at most hardware and Walmart Stores. I glue glass to glass every day..cannot be beat!

    Clear Silicone will work.

    E6000 but you won't be able to separate the pieces afterwards should you decide to do so.

    Loctite Go2 glue -it's clear and extra durable. I've used it for years making my bird baths ,etc. and have them out doors all spring thru fall seasons.

    Silcon if it is weight bearing, just make sure it is suitable to be under water permanently, there is a Silicon that they use to join the corners on Fish Pond/Aquariums.

      Excellent, we have Glass corner windows here in our house and they glued in the corners with Silicon too, we have several bird baths here in our garden, after washing them out with the hose & scrubbing brush, we put a few drops of bleach into the water, it stops Alge growing but only a few drops!

    I would suggest checking out your local craft store. Maybe lowes or Home Depot also. I know that Michaels has a glue for glass.

    • Eileen B. Eileen B. on Aug 27, 2016
      Thank you Terri I decided on Marine Silicone glue. The birds won't come in contact with the glue so it should be okay

  • Debbie Debbie on Aug 29, 2016
    E6000 is the best. That is what I used to make my glass flowers.. they have been out all summer and have not fallen apart at all.

      Debbie I used to use E600 on my glass garden art. It does not hold up in the garden after several rains. I broke many of my prettiest pieces by using that glue. Never will I use it again unless it's for an indoor project.

    Winded and a magic eraser sponge. That's how I do it

  • Terri Terri on Aug 31, 2016
    I meant windex sorry

  • Debbie Debbie on Sep 04, 2016
    Mine have done great. Maybe you didn't let it dry 72 hrs before putting out in rain, plus I use plenty of glue. Mine have lastedall summer and it has rained a bunch in our area. I do take them down in winter.
