Candle dish birdbath
Materials: Ikea Bigarra Candle Dish, 3, 4' wood dowels
Description: I bought the Bigarra Candle Dish to use as a - GASP - candle dish.
A few days later I began thinking about making a birdbath from scratch because most of them are either too expensive or too ugly. Oftentimes, they are both.
Realized the candle dish was the perfect shape and size for the sleek/organic look that I wanted. Ta Da!
Just hammer the dowels at least 12" into the ground. Use a level to make sure they're even and place the dish on top.
Full instructions on staining dowels etc.
