Clay Pot Bird Bath

I wanted to add a bird bath to my front flower bed. I also wanted it to be unique, colorful and
one of a kind. This is simple and could be done by all ages. I will be posting this to Thrifty Thursday

I used paint for the outdoors, it can be bought at Hobby Lobby and Wal Mart. Buy or reuse three clay pots, if you are using used ones, wash and let dry. The bird bath can be as tall or short as you want. Make sure that the pots stack on top of each other.  You also need a clay pot tray for the top. Paint as desire, let your imagination be your guide. Paint each pot separately. It will take a couple of coats of paint to cover your pots, let dry between coats.

I measured where my top pot should be glued and used gorilla glue.

I weighted it down and let it dry for several hours. Taking the pots outside  I sprayed each section twice with Krylon indoor/outdoor clear statin spray.
