Place your pot or urn in the desired place for your birdbath,
depending on the shape of the vessel, you might wish to turn it upside
down. I filled mine with rocks to give it weight and prevent it from
blowing over in the wind.
Place the saucer on top of the pot, glue with silicone to keep in
place if desired.
Place rough stones in saucer to give birds a foothold, then fill
saucer with water.
Plant around the base of the birdbath to soften and add a natural
effect. Use low growing plants.
Hint: Place your birdbath in an open area such as a lawn. Birds prefer
to be able to view the area for enemies, and will use your bath more
often if they are not tucked back where a predator can hide. (Helps
you to chase off those neighborhood predators as well!)
