I thought I knew what I was doing for my bird bath but then started scouting around on google.
It is amazing what people have done! No need to purchase a prefab run of the mill birdbath anymore.....just read on!

Check this tutorial out from handmade.
I LOVE IT! I saw something similar in Southern Living years ago but never got around to making one...CONCRETE ladies...how neat (and cheap) is that!

here is one from naturalistic garden....




a pretty but simple idea from thenewgreenblog

here is a GREAT idea from mommamuse.
I have something similar in my yard for the dogs to drink out of but may have to take it back!

toad bath or toad pond

And here are a few I've made in the past...

I love all of them! I've always wanted to learn how to do the mosiac work. I think I should get the stuff and try it out soon!
