I have had these pieces for some time now, the bowl has a rounded bottom, so I am assuming it had a base it sat in, when I bought it at local thrift shop I wasn't sure what I would do with it just liked it, so it sat for some time now, waiting and searching to find a base that it would fit into. The wreath I picked up the other week on the intentions of making some kind of summer wreath for the door. Well things changed when I got this idea to make a bird bath to hang from our apricot tree.
These are the pieces I started with
I removed the silk flowers from the wreath
(I will use them somewhere in the house)
Painted the chain with Rust-Oleum Priner
This bowl was a perfet fit for this grapevine wreath, so all I had to do was place it inside the wreath and with the wieght of the water, it seems to be holding up fine.
Succulents? Ok, if your doing the eyeroll thing…I know…I know …NOT another succulent post! Wait you will see it looks so much better with them.
To add the succulents to the grapvine wreath, I made little burlap soil sacks…how did I do that? I'll show you…
You will need:
Succulent stems ( let your stems dry out and callous for at least a day)
Cut 4-6X6 pieces of burlap
Place your soil mix in the center of the burlap
Cut 4 pieces of jute (approx 6 inches)
Place your succulent stem into the middle of the burlap and soil
Pull your burlap up and around your stem and tie it off with some jute
(not too tight, but enough to hold the soil and your plant)
while you are are making your burlap succulent sacks, soak your spagnum moss in a bucket of water. (making sure all spagnum is covered in water).
Figure out the placemeNt of where you want to plant your succulent sacks on the grapevine wreath
use pieces of jute to tie them down to your grapvine wreath
Place your spagnum moss around all of the succulent burlap sacks
and tucking the remainder it into the grapevine wreath.
Now… who doesn't like to soak in a bath with candle light?
I say it goes hand in hand. Don't you?
So with that thought and giving these birds this luxuary as well. Candle light it is!
I must admit our birds are very spoiled, but actually they are the one's spoiling us with all there natural beauty and their beautiful song's!
