Step 1

Birdbath Planter Urn

Clean the plastic urn and terra-cotta saucer. Spray-paint both with Valspar Orange Maple. Let dry overnight.

Good to Know

Avoid soaking the unpainted saucer in water. If it becomes wet, allow it to dry thoroughly before painting.

Step 2

Once the urn and saucer are dry, place the 2-gallon growers’ pot upside down inside the urn. Then place the 8-inch plastic planter upside down on top of the growers’ pot.

Step 3

Fill the remaining space between the pots and urn with soil. Plant flowers and vines at the top of the urn to cover the black plastic planter.

Step 4

Place the terra-cotta saucer on top of the plastic planter and fill with water for birds.
