Craft Project - Wreath Birdbath

Use an inexpensive grapevine wreath and a flowerpot saucer to create a refreshing spot for feathered friends. A snap to assemble, this project is perfect for any child who thinks that bathing is for the birds!


• 3/8-inch manila rope
• 15-inch grapevine wreath
• 10-inch terra-cotta saucer
• Artificial grape leaves (optional)
• Scissors



1. Cut three (5-foot) lengths of rope and knot them together at both ends. Nestle the wreath inside the ropes, as shown.

2. Place the saucer inside the wreath. If you like, tuck grape leaves into the wreath and wind them around the ropes.

3. Use more rope for hanging the birdbath, if needed.
