I have the base of a nice ceramic bird bath I got a few years ago. unfortunately the top fell off and shattered.
I would love to put a new bath part on the base but haven't a clue what to use. I thought of a terra cotta plant liner, but they have holes in the center. a garbage can lid seems to be too deep in the center and too light.. how would I attach it?
They don't sell the top and base separate or I would just go buy the dang thing.
Any ideas? not too spendy ok?
Life is GOOD!!
It looks like Home Depot has bowls. Here's the link to one, but they have others.
I just replied on your other post.....

I would look for a plant saucer -- they're about the right depth and I know they have some big ones -- no holes in the center -- they're to keep the water in.
If you can't find one big enough, if you have a farm supply store near you, I'd go there and just look for there may be something that would work.
Usually, it's the other way around -- the base goes before the basin.

Perhaps you could use a large shallow glass bowl. Birds don't like a bath that is too deep.
This is a glass birdbath totem I made years ago.

Wow, joy luck that is a beauty!
but do they use it?? we've had one for years and no takers...
I put a brick in mine -- they'll land on it and sip -- it even is a fairly shallow bird bath.

Our Home Depot sells each part seperate so if the bottom breaks you can replace it and if the top breaks you can replace that. Birds ...especially Robins, Cardinals, and Blue Jays love to splash around while bathing so the top is just deep enough for that but also not too deep for the smaller birds. Our goldfinch are always getting a drink from it and don't seem to have any fear of drowning.
