I saw this cool birdbath on a blog somewhere and thought I would give it a try. Of course, I didn't do exactly what I saw, where is the fun in that? My mom loves plants and loves the terra cotta pots. When I originally saw the bird bath made out of pots, I thought she would love it! That person made it with 3 bigger pots and I believe a bigger base. My mom doesn't have a lot of room, so I made mine kind of smaller. A 12" pot and a 10" pot with a 12" base. The original one was also painted. I decided to keep them the plain color, to match the plants she has on her porch. I also only attached the base to the top. This way, if she needs to transport it or put it away, she can take it apart to move it. I attached the base to the bottom of the smaller pot with Liquid Nails. So far it is working well! I am sure you could do this with any pot you find. Hope you enjoy it! My mom loved it! We are just waiting for all of her birds to decide it is safe to use!
