Our children's garden has had an empty spot for awhile now. Every year I have tried to grow flowers from seed in this spot but for some reason or another they haven't taken. While Kathleen was here she made a birdbath that has found its perfect spot in that location! Kathleen has made these birdbaths before and they are so adorable that I really wanted one for the garden. It is such a charming addition and it's even more special because Kathleen made it!
She starts with two terra cotta pots and a saucer. They are glued together and spray painted on the inside.
Painting comes next.
Each flower and bug is made from our fingerprints! We each were assigned a color and that was the center for each of our flowers.
When she painted the stems on the flowers she worked in our names so that we would always remember which color/flower was ours. Aren't you impressed with her cursive? (With a paint brush no less!)
She also adds grass to the bottom. We each have a critter and a family caterpillar.
And of course every artist should sign their work!
Thank you Kacky for such a lovely addition to our garden. Now we will be waiting for the birds to come and bathe!
P.S. There are other steps involved and Kathleen has pretty specific paint, glue and spray that she uses. If you want to know more details just let me know.
