Create a sculpture, a bird bath or just a lovely piece of art for your garden with items found around the house or at yard sales. This adorable bird bath was made from plates, a lamp base and a ceramic bird box.
Find odd pieces or long forgotten items and fit them together in different configurations until you find a design you like. Going a step further, you can use damaged or chipped items (broken into small pieces) to create a mosaic as well.
Note: you'll need silicone glue to attach the pieces, but not before you sand them down to "rough up" the glazed finish.
