This adorable birdbath is so easy to make!


You will need:


5 small terra cotta pots


1 medium terra cotta dish


1 large terra cotta dish


2-ton epoxy


ornament (bird or other)


white craft/acrylic paint


water


paintbrush

  1. To create the column of the birdbath, use 2-ton epoxy to attach each of the 5 small terra cotta pots to one another, end-to-end and opening to opening. Let epoxy cure completely – about an hour or so for each application.
  2. To make the base of the birdbath, use 2-ton epoxy to attach the small end of the column to the bottom of the medium terra cotta plate.
  3. To make the bath portion of the birdbath, use 2-ton epoxy to attach the open end of the column to the bottom of the large terra cotta plate.
  4. Finish off the birdbath by attaching a bird or other ornament into the center of the large terra cotta dish.
  5. Mix one part water with one part white paint and using a brush, whitewash the entire birdbath until it is the desired shade and texture.
  6. Let dry and place outside for the birds! Variable weather and temperatures will naturally fade and age the whitewash over time.
