Here are directiosn for making your own mosaic-covered items for garden and yard decor. You can use a large clay saucer for the bird bath base, and these make very nice gifts. If you want a stand for it you could use an upside down clay pot that you can put mosaic on also if you like.
You might want to cover other items with mosaic. A table top is easy because of the flat surface. I’ve seen watering cans covered in mosaic. It would be too heavy to actually use, but it’s decorative. You can create all sorts of things to “give a touch of whimsy” as they like to say on the tv decorating shows! Have fun with it!
I love the way mosaic adds color to the garden, but you can make it in any colors you like, even greens and earth tones to blend in with your patio perhaps. Make it the way you want it!
