This project consists of two items found at the thrift store. A pedestal of some sort and a dinner plate plus some other items to dress it up. The end result a very pretty bird bath.

I made a birdbath like this a few years ago, but the squirrels kept knocking off the large plate (large pot saucer) that I used on top. Even with a heavy rock in the middle it keeps falling off. I would have to drill a hole in the middle and use a very long skewer to stake it on, but I haven't done it yet, and the top keeps falling off. Maybe your plate is more stably positioned.

John I just loved this bird bath! I only hope I can also find the same kind of base. I love my birds and this will be a great addition to my yard. Looking forward to another new hobby!
