Bird on mini birdbath


If you don’t have room for a full sized birdbath in your garden you can make a mini version. The birds will still enjoy drinking from it and it is easier to transport if you move house.
You will need
• a bowl or casserole dish as the bath part
• a vase
• a medium to large sized plate for the base
• supa glue

You may have some old crockery you no longer use that you can upcycle. If you don’t have the necessary china items at the back of a cupboard they can be easily purchased from an op shop or garage sale. The advantage of buying with this project in mind is you can choose items that go well together.

Glue the bowl to the base of the vase and allow the glue to dry.

When dry, glue the vase to the plate.

The plate ensures the bird bath doesn’t topple over when a bird lands on it.

When the glue has dried put your creation in the garden and fill with water. The local birds will appreciate a place to have a drink and a splash, especially in the hotter weather.

I made this mini bird bath last summer but found the supa glue lost its grip after some time. I reglued the bird bath using Selleys 3 in 1 and this has held the vase and bowl together for 5 months now.
