Bird Bath



  1. Depending on the sizes and numbers of pots used, different looking birdbaths can be made.
  2. Invert pots and stack them together, with the largest clay pot on the bottom. Place the large clay saucer upside down on the top.
  3. Glue the pots together using silicone adhesive. Attach saucer to top pot with the silicone adhesive, making sure it is centered and level.
  4. If desired, decorate the bird bath using a foam brush, sponges or stencils.
  5. Glue shells or mosaics onto the birdbath, then apply grout between the shells (or mosaic tiles or stones). When all is dry, cover the painted and grouted surfaces with several layers of polyurethane or acrylic sealer.

If you plan to paint the bird bath, paint the pots and saucer before assembly. Let dry completely, then proceed with the instructions above.

Tip: You may want to weight the bottom pot with gravel to give it more weight.
