Here are a couple good ways to make use of broken bird baths:

  1. If you have an old bird bath and the top has been broken, save thebase.
  2. Fill with soil and put succulents in it with a tiny house and a couple of fairies for a cute “fairyland” arrangement.

How deep should a birdbath be? The water should be no deeper than 0.5 to 1 inch at the edges, sloping to a maximum of 2 inches deep in the middle of the bath. One of the best ways to make your birdbath even more attractive is to provide dripping water. Many birds find the sight and sound of moving waterirresistible.

How do you paint an old concrete bird bath? Painting the BathAfter you apply at least two coats of primer to a concrete birdbath, you can paint the bath as you would paint any other surface. Apply an oil-based outdoor paint, which sticks more effectively to concrete, to the bath with a paintbrush as evenly asyou can, and allow the paint to dry for 24 hours.

How do you seal a concrete fountain? Apply spray concrete or terra cotta sealer to the inside and outside surface of the fountain reservoir. You can do this by spraying, or you can use a paintbrush. Hold the spray applicator between 6 and 8inches from the surface of the fountain reservoir.
