    There are really lots of ways to make them, and birdies like little birdie baths so all you need is imagination, and adhesive. I am making one myself and will post it if I remember lol. A big old spaghetti bowl and a heavy vase?

    I made one years ago for my Grandma using a large terracotta pot & saucer. Then painted them with weather proof paint. Not only was it pretty, but the paint kept the terracotta from absorbing the water.

    I have made a three-tier bird bath from assorted sizes of terracotta pots and a big saucer on top. Painted all the pots and saucer different colors. All kinds of ideas on pinterest.

    I used some old brick that I found in the barn. Stacked them up to the height that I wanted and width that I needed and bought a terra cotta pot base and placed in on top of the brick. Works and looks neat too!

    My yard had lots of broken concrete pieces laying around when I bought the house. I made a pile of pieces and packed soil around and between them. I topped it with a terracotta planter saucer about 20" in diameter, leveling it with small rocks and soil. I planted tiny succulents in the soil and filled the saucer with water and a large glass turtle I found at a thrift store. I love watching the birds bathing with my turtle now.
