Either way, this gorgeous bowl and stand will look adorable.
If you or someone you know is really into art statues, this is the perfect bird bath design.

These may not actually be bird ponds, but they’re so cute, I could imagine a feathered friend thinking that they’d stumbled upon their very own pond. Nestled right atop a wooden stump, these wide bath basins look more like little pools. The bowls themselves are cut to resemble a wooden bowl which only adds to the natural charm. This is an adorable concept that your feathered friends and human friends will surely appreciate.
This adorable antique bird tub would be the perfect fit in the antique lover’s garden.

This bird bath is suspended by chains, creating a rustic yet highly decorative piece you could place just about anywhere.

This gorgeous bird bath has been hand painted with three colorful birds at the base of the bowl.

In this interesting recycled bird bath concept, an old TV dish is being used as the bowl of the bird bath. Whatever works! This once piece of junk that would have been tossed in the garbage is now a great bird bath for all the birds in the neighborhood.
This bird bath appears to be created with clay and is more than likely handmade. Creating a bird bath from clay would be a great project for a couple or even a family with kids (and plenty of patience!). Clay can be easily formed into just about anything, and this adorable heart embellishment in the center of the bowl of the bird bath is a sweet reminder that it was made with extra care and love.

I could even imagine two or three of these adorable bird baths in a garden setting to add that extra level of whimsy.
Another great DIY project, you can make a bird bath out of flower pots. The pedestal to this bird bath is two or three flower pots glued together and then painted over.

The whole thing is painted over with dark paint and mosaic pieces and jewels are glued on to create a stunning work of art.
This in-ground bird basin resembles a rocky pond. In fact, I do believe that the plastic basin used in this bird bath project was initially intended for a water feature. Since its sturdy in material, you can easily transform a basin like this into a natural in-ground bird bath. Add some rocks and plants along the edges to create that pond effect.
This colorful flower pot bird bath features several flower pots stacked upon each other to create quite the interesting bird bath concept.

Bird baths often act as a conversation piece or art piece easily placed in an outdoor area.
This wooden bird bath or textured bird bath that resembles wood, is a cute way to bring the birds on by. I could imagine a bird bath like this one outside of a corner café or garden art party.

The texture in this bird bath is enough to add intrigue without much color or design.
Even the fairies need bird baths to watch butterflies come through! This adorable tiny bird bath is a cute way to add some fun into your fairy garden. The colorful bowl in this bird bath help make those gorgeous purple flowers pop with color. This would make an adorable attribute to a child’s fairy garden project or just in general.
This bird bath resembles a massive flower opening up in full bloom. The petals of the flower are what create the massive bird bath bowl. The flower appears to be made of some sort of finished metal and the design within the flower is gorgeous. So many textures within the natural carved metal makes this element gorgeous in its simplicity.
This bird bath depicts another wide open flower in bloom. The elements in this particular bird bath are quite intriguing with all that gold color. This bird bath is probably comprised of bronze or another treated metal that can withstand holding water for so long without rusting. This would make a gorgeous addition to a front yard garden or sitting area.
Proof that the birds love this bird bath setup – they’re all flocking in for a drink of water!

This bird bath features decorative painted daisies right at the base of the pedestal. The gorgeous painted flowers add so much character to the design that the bath itself can remain simple.

As you can see, when birds find a fresh watering hole during winter, they are sure to flock to it throughout the entire season.

This would be great to have set up by a window so the entire family can look out on all the different birds coming in for a drink of water.
This bird bath stands proud in the snow as two gorgeous red cardinals swoop in for a drink of water.

Adding pops of color into your winter garden scene is never a bad idea, and with this unique design, the birds are sure to come flocking over.
