Bird Bath Planter Redo

I originally posted my bird bath planter as a guest post over at Nikki’s Nifty Knacks. I really wanted to have  it finished, complete with flowers, so that she could use it when she needed it. I finished it late in the evening and made  a late night run to Walmart. So I had to use what flowers I could find there.  I’ve decided to give it a plant make-over and enter it in  the first month of the DIY Club:

I had another project going in my mind that I would love to have had finished, but time and the weather have NOT cooperated! So I’m doing this instead! ;-)
Here’s how I started out:
I used a wooden candle holder and pasta bowl for the base. I gave them a coat of textured (stone look
-spray paint and used Gorilla Glue to hold them together.
Then I added the pedestal made from a piece of a wooden candlestick that I had leftover from another project, a ceramic saucer and a clay pot. They all got a coat of the same textured spray paint.
Please ignore the messy garden in the background, it has gotten some attention recently so that it doesn’t look quite so unloved anymore.
I had filled it with potting soil and plants, but today I redid the plants and this is how it looks now.   
I also included the Gorilla Glue that I used in the picture today as the original picture had all of my products in it and that won’t work for the DIY entry! :-)

I’ve never entered anything like this….so, I’m nervous!
