DIY Birdbaths - Bring Birds To Your Garden!

Nothing brings birds to your garden quite like a water source. Birdbaths are essential for birds to keep themselves groomed and hydrated, but they can be expensive to purchase!
Believe it or not, you probably have the makings of a birdbath in your shed, garage or basement right now! Even if you don’t, it won’t take much cash or time to put one together and start enjoying more feathered friends in your garden.
Here are some of the birdbaths I made for our garden!
Decorative Dish Birdbath
This birdbath was made from a plant stand and a decorative dish bought at HomeGoods. Total cost $15.00.
Kitchen Sink Fountain & Potting Bench
A vintage sink bought for $30 and a pump for $29.95 make a one-of-a-kind water feature and potting bench!
Stacked Stone Birdbaths
Leftover landscape stone and galvanized trash can lids made three birdbaths for free!
