DIY Birdbath From Vintage Glass

Those of you who drop in regularly know I love myself a great thrift store find. I get a little rush every time I score something fun and unique and cheap.

You may remember the fun Value Village Tour I did last fall with some blogger friends. I found some vintage glassware and made these Vintage glass candle holders that still sit on my table. I’ve been feeling the thrifting bug again lately, so I headed out this week to my favourite Value Village locations to see what I could find. I grabbed a coffee and made an afternoon of it. I chose a route through Toronto that took me to 3 great locations – my idea of a fun day.

I’m always drawn to the vintage glass. I usually find something I’d love to bring home, but my cupboard space is pretty limited. My yard, however, is HUGE, and so I thought of a fun project that allowed me to collect a few more pieces.

A birdbath!

Why not? My feathered friends deserve a little boho style. And I love the idea of art in the garden. I have a number of pieces tucked here and there, and I knew just the perfect quiet corner that was calling out for a little bird spa to pretty it up.

I made this in the same way I made my thrift store bowl candle holders. I found a number of pieces that stacked well together and then I glued them – voilà, a birdbath!

But first let’s admire the vintage glass prettiness.

Lovely, non?

Any of these pieces would look great on your dining table, or bedroom, or bathroom. But these were destined for the soon-to-be stylish birds in my yard. All you have to do is stack them so they look pretty and feel sturdy, and then glue them together. I used Goop Marine formula adhesive, because it was UV and water resistant – perfect for outdoors. And it dried clear.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind. Make sure to follow the directions on the adhesive, and use tape or other supports to hold your project still while it cures. Look for glass pieces with simple edges. The rippled edges on the 3 glass vases I used in the middle here were a little tricky to work with. I loved the look, so I decided to try to make it work, but I had a few close calls when I was assembling the birdbath. You can see what it looked like as it was curing. I used tape to hold the pieces in place.

Here’s the finished piece. What do you think? Pretty fancy for my birds. I’ll have to make sure to let them know that they’re living a Pinterest life. Hopefully, the news won’t get around the neighbourhood, and put some bird peer pressure on my neighbours to make fancy birdbaths of their own. Luckily, there’s a nearby Value Village that can keep my neighbours and their birds very happy!

  1. “living a Pinterest life” lol that totally cracked me up! Those lucky birds! this is definitely a gorgeous bath!

      It’s the same for my dog. My sister cooks gourmet meals for her pooch, who is my dog’s brother. I always say “Don’t tell my Sky!” That’s all I need – pooch peer pressure lol! Thanks for visiting 🙂

  2. Christine says:

    That is so pretty! I love your vintage glass bird bath! How I long for a garden that is pretty and dainty! I would love to make this and have it in our garden for the birds!

  3. Vanessa says:

    Have you ever heard of a “bee bath”? Apparently it involves placing cool river rocks on a plate/basin and putting it in a shaded spot so the bees can hide from the sun amongst the cool rocks -no water involved! That might just be my new summer project!

    • Dani says:

      I’ve never heard of this! It sounds like it would look lovely in the garden, and I like the idea of helping out the poor bees – they’re already under so much stress from all the environmental changes. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Jenna Em says:

    What a great DIY birdbath! Very creative and elegant. Do you find it sturdy when it’s windy, or do you have to weigh down the bottom with a sandbag? Well done!

    • Dani says:

      Actually Jenna, I didn’t think too much about the wind but that is a very good point! The birdbath is fairly heavy and sturdy since the base is wide enough, but strong winds are definitely a concern. I will probably weigh the base down with pretty rocks. Thanks so much for pointing that out!

  5. Such a cute idea and so pretty for the garden.

  6. Ladena says:

    What a GREAT idea! I would never had thought of this. I also love that you were able to reuse things to create something completely unexpected. I bet the birds will love their new birdbath!

    • Dani says:

      I does really pretty up that corner of my garden, and the birds have already found their way there. Thanks for visiting!

  7. You have such a great eye for this kind of thing. I love how it turned out!
