What can I do with a cement bird bath base?

by Jessica

I have a heavy, cement base to a bird bath that I’m trying to figure out what to do with. (The top is missing.) I’m thinking something decorative for the flower garden, but I’m curious if anyone has any ideas I haven’t thought of!

    You could use it as a base for a solar light.

    Or a gazing ball stand.

    Find a large, pretty dish or bowl, attach with cement epoxy, and update it. Or check garden and concrete stores for a replacement top.

    Hi Jessica. How about either a bird bath or a bird feeder? Buy the bottom "saucer" piece that a large terra cotta pot would sit on. Start by sawing off the pipe on top of the base. Use a cement glue to attach both pieces. Paint the color of your choice. Then add either bird seeds or water.
