DIY: Make your own bird bath
DIY: Make your own bird bath

Bring a bit of life to your garden by creating your own bird bath.

This new feature is sure to get a few of your flying friends visiting on a daily basis...

Making your own bird bath is as easy as one, two! Yes, it only take two resources to put together your very own bird bath.

All you need is birch twigs and a wooden bowl. You are sure to find thes things around your home, and if not, you can buy them from a DIY store.  

If you can't get your hands on a wooden bowl, a plastic one will be sufficient. Provided that the plastic is durable to all the elements.  



If you don’t have birch twigs, go out and cut some from your garden or a neighbour. But be sure to ask for permission before you cut them.

Research shows that birds like bowls to be off the ground, but will indeed bathe in a bowl just lying in a garden.

The depth of the water needs to be between 1 and 2 inches, so don’t fill the bowl up, just put a little water in the bottom. Regardless of whether it attracts birds or not, it makes a garden look beautiful.

When collecting the sticks, be sure that they are 12 inches longer than the height you would want the bird bath to be.
If you’re going to do this yourself, the only thing you need to know is that your sticks need to be hammered into the ground.  
At least 12 inches of them need to be in the dirt so they’re good and sturdy for the heftier of birds that might come to bathe.
