DIY bird baths are a great idea for those who want to save some money. Bird baths can be quite expensive, especially the ones made form stone or granite. But if you don’t really need a very stylish bird bath and your goal is just to keep the birds happy and provide them a source of water, you can easily create a bird bath with your own hands. There are some interesting bird bath choices out there. In fact, you probably won’t even need to buy anything extra to make them. All the necessary materials can be found in your home or yard.
DIY hanging bird bath is pretty simple to make. All you need to find is a bowl. You can use any old bowl you have in your house, or you can buy a cheapest one in the nearby store. Just make sure the bowl is either made of glass or durable plastic. It must be heavy enough not to be swayed back and forth by the wind once you hang it. Now, all you have to do is attach thick strings or wire to the bowl and hang it up on the nearest tree. Fill it with water and the easy-to-make hanging bird bath is ready to be used.
DIY heated bird bath can be a little harder to create. In fact, if you don’t have any experience with electricity and heating, you shouldn’t start this job without proper advice. The best idea would be to make a handmade bird bath out of heat resistant materials and purchase a bird bath heater. Such bath heater will do a good heating job, while it is much cheaper than a heated bath. All you need to do is place the bird bath near a power source where you will plug in the appropriate heater.
