I found some tutorials and ideas and got started on one this morning! And this is the result!
I used a 5 gallon plastic bucket, acrylic paints, mod podge and the frying pan.
To read more about this handmade birdbath, with step by step instructions of how I did it, please visit my 3 part series here, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. (3 isn't finished and published just yet!).
I am so pleased with how this turned out. I need a little garden gnome to stand beside his house!
