My finished bird bath! Can you see the koi and the lily pads?
I started this glass tile bird bath nearly two years ago, while pregnant, and have finally finished it! The base is a terra cotta drip tray, about 18 inches across. The tiles I bought precut, but if I really get into stained glass or mosaics, I can see how tile/class cutters would be beneficial! Still, I love how it turned out and am excited to finally put my koi bird bath out in the garden!
Made from a terra cotta drip tray, precut glass tiles, and white grout.
I will be taking inspiration from some Pinterest posts for the stand for my bird bath - simply using a terra cotta pot turned upside down! I love that idea, and the whole piece will match. I might paint the outside and the stand sometime in the future, but I actually like the orange-red of terra cotta amidst green leaves and vegetation....
