DIY Bird Bath From Repurposed Vase and Plate

This beautiful DIY purple bird bath was a huge hit on Hometalk and it only  took about 5 minutes to complete, it just doesn’t get any easier! This repurposed vase and plate were the perfect second-hand finds.

I spotted the vase in a corner of a thrift shop, obscured by a variety of other items. As soon as I saw it I fell in the love the shimmering purples, pinks and greens of the mosaic design and immediately knew it would make an ideal stand for a bird bath if it was inverted with the base up. With that thought in mind, I turned my attention to the shelves stacked with dinnerware and serving bowls and there it was – a large purple circular serving plate; the perfect color and size with a wonderful texture on the underside that looked like water drops. It was simply meant to be!

I applied a glass adhesive available in any hardware or craft store and for under $12.00 including the cost of the glue I was able to create a unique and colorful  addition to my deck that is both beautiful and functional.

I hadn’t consider how sunlight would reflect through the vase resulting in a spectrum of color patterns – absolutely stunning! At night  I add a little battery operated light under the vase and  I have a kaleidoscope of warm color that lights up the deck.
