I've made two attempts at making a birdbath out of leftover roofing copper. Both attempts are now hung up somewhere and called "art". My mother-in-law asked me to make her a birdbath for Christmas. I thought copper would be really pretty and lightweight so she could take it back to Ohio with her when she left this week. After beating the copper with a rubber mallet, and trying to be oh-so-very-careful, they both still got tiny holes in them. I could make one out of concrete and tile but I don't want to pay for shipping concrete and I don't think she could easily move it either. I'm trying to come up with another idea. Anyone?
