Earth Day Bird Bath

This Earth Day Bird Bath is the perfect natural addition to your outdoor space!   To celebrate Earth Day, I wanted to share an eco-friendly project with you!  I made this Earth Day Bird Bath out of a grapevine wreath, terracotta pot saucer and twine!  I love how it turned out!  It looks so natural and outdoorsy!

First measure and cut four 2 yard lengths of twine.
Combine the four ends (evenly) and double knot.

Place on the ground and spread out the four lengths so they form a cross.  (I did this on the deck and it made it a little easier to manage.)

Place the grapevine wreath on top of the twine cross.

Place the saucer in the wreath.

Pull the four ends up around the wreath.  Tie the twine ends together (about two to three feet above the wreath).
Next, I added some silk greenery to “camoflauge” the bird bath and make it look more natural.

I wish I had more pictures to show you but it started raining and the pictures are pretty blurry…

This could make a great Mother’s Day present too!  Or you could add some bird seed and use it as a feeder!
What did you do to celebrate Earth Day??
