Lamp Base Turned Birdbath!
I had an old plastic resin birdbath that I was tired of painting year after year and wanted something different. I had seen an old lamp base one day when I was out browsing the thrift stores and instantly knew what I was going to use it for, and the rest, as they say, is history!
Gather Your Supplies
- Lamp base
- Spray paint
- Metal container (A stainless steel bowl can be used or any plastic container. It depends on the look you are going for.)
First I spray painted the lamp base using Trembled Hammered sliver. Sorry there is no picture. Next I took my container and turned it upside down and drilled a hole in the middle.
Then I attached it to the lamp base.
Next I used cork ribbon and glued it around the container.
Next I wanted to add something where the light bulb would normally go so I found this cute owl at my Dollar Store, along with some greenery I plan to use.
I attached the owl with wire as it had holes in the side, and used some hot glue to secure it more.
Next I took my greenery and wrapped it around the lamp base, securing it in places with wire and added a little branch to make it look like the owl was sitting on it.
Here it is completed. I love how it turned out. Now only if my flowers would grow....
