DIY Bird Bath Planter I used terracotta pots, painted them w/ wood stain & baked them in the sun. Drilled holes w/ masonry bit. Sealed water dish & stuck bird (99Store) & rocks on w/ epoxy resin. glued pots together w/ contact cement (99¢Store), planted succulents, & sprinkled soil w/ chicken grit(cause I had it on hand) & river rocks. I kept the top dish free so I can remove it for cleaning. I'm taking a stab, too, at propagating clippings from the succulents 4 future projects. BIRDBATH
