Even if you don't consider yourself crafty, you'll find success making this simple and frugal DIY bird bath using a tomato cage and a flower pot saucer.
Author: The Make Your Own Zone
12" Poly Saucer
Insert the tomato cage into the ground, pushing it in all the way to the first ring of the tomato cage if possible.
Put the poly saucer on the top ring of the tomato cage.
It's also helpful to use a level to make sure your DIY bird bath is sitting as straight in the ground as possible. Set the level on top of the saucer, and make any necessary adjustments to how it is setting in the ground.
Optional: If you would like to give your bird bath a stone look, give the saucer a light coat of Krylon Stone Fine Texture spray paint (and let dry) before setting it on top of the tomato cage.
Add about an inch of water to the saucer.
Be sure to clean and replace with fresh water regularly so the birds can enjoy.
