Make a Small Birdbath Out of Clay Pots to Hold a Pretty Potted Plant

Want to make something pretty for your potted plant? Or something special to give as a gift? Here it is. Make a small birdbath out of clay pots! It really is very pretty and makes an awesome gift with even a small plant.

Pretty birdbath made from clay pots.

Here are the supplies for making this little plant holder...

Clay pots used to make birdbath plant holder.

Glue the bottom of the pot to the underside of the pot saucer as in picture. I use E-6000 which is a great all around glue. It needs to be used OUTSIDE because of the fumes (there are all kinds of warnings on the label).

I cut a piece of pretty scrapbook paper to wrap around the pot since it was totally not attractive. Add some pretty natural stones!

Happy Spring, everyone!!!



  1. What a fabulous idea! I just might have to make some of these for my DIL's for Mother's Day. Love that you wrapped some scrapbooking paper around the clay pot. Hugs, Brenda

  2. Seriously LOVED this! Simple and extremely effective! Now I just have to work on not having a black thumb :)

  3. I love this! It looks even easy enough for me to do. I was just thinking the other day that I need to get some more African Violets. Mine had not survived our move a few years ago and I had just never gotten anymore. Now I will and they will look beautiful! Thanks!

  4. Very cute! This will be a perfect project for me and my daughter to design and make. Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Linda, this is so clever and adorable. Perfect for spring. You always have the cutest ideas.

  6. So sweet, pretty amd simple, I like ideas like that!


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!
