How to create a candle holder birdbath
This DIY candle holder birdbath is a fun and easy project.
So I have a thing for birdbaths. I admit it. It’s not something I’m ashamed of but, yes, I do have a problem. Every time I come home from a thrifting expedition my haul always seems to include things that I can use to make into birdbaths. I just can’t help myself.
But I do love having things in the garden for our feathered friends.
Here’s my latest example.
Pieces used to create candle holder birdbath
Here’s what I started with. A wrought iron candle holder (it’s upside down in the photo), a ceramic base (not sure what it really is), a glass coaster, and a glass bowl. The cost of all these items was $1.75.
Spray painting candle holder for birdbath
I gave everything a good cleaning and then primed the base and the wrought iron candle holder with a white spray primer. Then I sprayed both with a lovely light purple.
I balanced the glass coaster on the top of the candle holder, on the three arms, and adhered it with the GOOP glue. I then left it to dry until the next day. I had to make sure the coaster was very securely attached before I glued the glass bowl on to the coaster.
I love the purple! It’s such a happy color.
Here’s the finished bird bath in the garden.
Since the bowl isn’t very deep, it can also easily be used as a bird feeder. We don’t have squirrels in our area so that wouldn’t be a problem.
But it’s a birdbath for now. Apparently, this girl’s garden can’t have too many. LOL. (By the way, the birds love me.)
Thanks so much for reading and until next time,
