The Swirly Copper Bird Bath
This swirly birdbath is one of the most unique we’ve found on Amazon. It is made of copper, and one of the swirls forms the bird bath basin, while the other provides shelter for the bathing birds. Due to the fact that copper is a bio-static metal, algae, fungi and other plants will not stick to or grow on it, making this unique bird bath very easy to clean. In fact, many birdbath owners place copper objects in their birdbaths because of the metal’s bio-static properties. Copper is a lighter metal, so be sure to place this bird bath in a safe location to avoid dents and other types of damage.

Make Unique Birdbaths With These Do It Yourself Projects
Of course, buying a bird bath is not the only way to add to your yard or landscape. Building your own unique birdbaths can also be a great option. If you have been looking for birdbaths for sale but have not found the perfect one for your yard, you may decide to make your own. By making your own bird bath, you can choose all your own materials and create a bird bath exactly to your own specifications. You will be sure that all the materials are safe, and that you will have a great bird bath that will attract a wide range of species to your yard. Here are 3 do it yourself projects that will help you create unique birdbaths for your own backyard.
Old Lamp Bird Bath
You can make a bird bath out of an old lamp by cutting the cord off the lamp and taking the lamp completely apart. Also remove the lampshade and the mechanism that holds the light bulb. What you’ll be left with is the base of the lamp with the metal rod that would hold the light bulb exposed.
Then, all you need to do is get creative with the type of basin or bowl you use. Remember that the ideal depth for a bird bath basin in 2 inches and that the basin should gradually slope towards the middle, where it will be at its deepest. Drill a hole in the middle of basin and mount the basin on top of the exposed rod and fasten it into place with some epoxy.

Flower Bowl Bird Bath
This unique bird bath is very easy to make and clean and can be constructed very quickly. It consists of a flower-shaped basin resting on three wooden or metal rods tapped into the ground. The instructions recommend a basin that is no more than 3 inches deep, but a 2 inch deep basin is even better. The rods can be painted with an outdoor grade paint and basin simply rests on top of the 3 rods. You may place a rock in the center of the basin to provide some weight to keep the bath in place and to give the birds a place to perch.

Birdbath Water Park
Birds and Blooms calls this one the Bird Bath Water Park, and it is one of the most unique birdbaths we’ve seen. It consists of several thick tree branches. Position the branches and fasten together with some screws or nails. Fasten plant holders to the branches themselves. You can then place a bowl on the plant holders and fill it with water. We recommend shallower bowls than are shown in the picture. You can make the entire project with very few, inexpensive supplies. When you finish, you will have a unique bird bath that nobody else your neighborhood will have.
Old Chair Birdbath
Another idea for making unique birdbaths is to make one out of an old chair. This is a personal favorite, because the basin can be shallow, minimizing the risk of drowning birds. All you need to take is buy a shallow terracotta basin. Then, place it where the chair cushion used to be. Wire or metal chair frames work best because they are sturdy and will stand up in the elements. You can read more about this idea from daisymaebelle.com.

Oscar The Grouch Birdbath
I like to call this unique birdbath the Oscar The Grouch birdbath. This is because it consists of an old, overturned trash can with its lid resting on top. You should remove the handle from the top prior to resting it on the trash can. Make sure that the basin (in this case the trash can lid) is no more than 2″ deep. This will prevent possible drowning. You can then place stones, shells etc. in the water to give the birds an additional surface to hold on to.

Old CD Birdbath
Here’s another idea if you’d like to make your own unique birdbaths: make one out of old CDs. Cut some old CDs into pieces and glue them to your choice of basin. Apply grout in between the CDs to fill in the gaps. Then, clean out the excess grout until you only see white lines around the CD pieces.
