Triple Planter Birdbath

Here is the FIRST craft project I ever made for the newspaper that was published. 1999. I had given it to my Aunt Connie years ago and her daughter (my cousin), CeCe, begged to let her have it for her patio. When I was at CeCe’s for a party recently, I saw this birdbath and gasped! I forgot about it!

What you do is take three graduated sizes of planters, plus one large saucer. Turn the pots upside down and stack them. Use a chalk marker to make a line where they will meet and then decorate. Let them dry, stack them and then set the saucer on top, also painted. Make sure to use a heavy all-weather varnish over the entire surface so it will last for years to come!

If you don’t want to use it as a birdbath, you can use it to hold anotherplanter, as seen in the photo, or anything else you want!

Peace, love, and glitter!
Kathy 🙂

  1. Hi Kathy! Within a year of your article coming out, something similar was in Matt Maranian’s book PAD. It was called the Buddha Flame Pit, and it’s not as tall, but it’s a similar concept. I made one at the time (terracotta pots sprayed with gold paint and epoxied together — a wide dish on top, supported by an upside-down bowl). It was meant more as a candle farm, filled with glass marbles and used on a table.

    I left it behind when I moved from FL to OH, because it was heavy and not very difficult or expensive to create (in other words, really easy to replace if you want to, though I haven’t, yet).
