decorative-bird-bath-mold WildWorldWoman shows how easy it is to make a decorative cement birdbath basin using glass dishes as a mold. The patterns in the dishes not only gives this bird bath decorative details but also a textured surface for the birds to stand on. For extra texture she adds sand to the lip of the bowl. Once the cement is dried you can stain or paint your birdbath to give more color for added interest.
Place some orange slices in a shallow bowl with some water to attract all types of Butterflies to your garden, Monarchs in particular love them. if you are concerned about ants,,, place the oranges and a few rocks in a shallow bird bath and place mint oil all along the base... Ants do not like mint. I do this to my hummingbird feeder that is on a shepherd's hook. The ants stay away from the feeder. - A Not So Secret Garden
