In keeping with the salute to our feathered friends while simultaneously giving a nod to crafts, I want to talk birdbaths. I’d like to share how to make this great Leaf Bowl which I think would make an awesome birdbath—or bird feeder for that matter. So here are the instructions, from Sherri Warner Hunter’s Creative Concrete Ornaments for the Garden.
In addition I wanted to show images of all types of other clever crafty birdbaths. But when I started poking around online I found a Flickr group that stopped me dead in my tracks: Birdbaths in mosaic. It combines two of my loves: birds and mosaics—actually three, I love baths, too. The bright colors, the intriguing designs, and the tactility of glass, tile, and grout all ring my bell.
I like the geometric look of this piece by Megan Cain Mosaics. The flowers feel Art Deco and groovy to me.
Check out the 3-D flowers on the very cool birdbath by Moe’s Ache.
You can bet Betty McNaughton of RatherBMosaicing was having a blast when she made this Bbath. Check out the cup handles radiating out from the rim—fun, huh?!
Wow-ee. I think that about covers it. By Linda Hooper.
This one by Susan Walden of Bamasusanna is all geometric with an Old World Romanesque flavor.
