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!

    How much chain do I purchase

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

    Do birds actually use it? I find using glass anything makes birds stay away because it is too slippery to get a foothold. Perhaps placing some rocks inside that rise above the water or attaching a branch will encourage birds. Otherwise you have a cute handing bird bath with no birds.

    This would be a good feeder for bees and butterflies too. Would have to put some pebbles in it so they have a place to land.
