Heather from Our Life in a Click did THIS project back in April, and although I'd already made a BIRDBATH, I knew I was destined to put one of these bad boys in the backyard. Heather left hers natural.
Have you just met me?
For this project, I bought a 16 inch wreath for $1.99 at Walmart and then hauled it into Home Depot for a 12 inch saucer that ran me $6. The wreath got a good coating of Rustoleum Apple Green spray paint, and the saucer got 3 light coats of Spa Blue. For instructions on how to paint a wreath, pop over to THIS project.
Once you have full coverage, grab some twine.
Thread the twine through the wreath, forming an X underneath to support the terra cotta saucer and then up to form a hanger
I squeezed a puddle of Goop, which is waterproof, into the center of the saucer and placed shells, seaglass, and flat backed marbles as an accent.
You know me and garden blinguistics.
And of course, I added a Fairy Charm. For instructions on how to make one of those, pop over HERE.
You can see the support underneath.
Then hang in a shady spot to enjoy!
Simple, inexpensive, and a perfect shot of color. I'm in love with this idea. And the birds may actually be safe at this height.
