I have been wanting to make a bottle tree for a long time. I have been collecting bottles but obviously don't drink enough wine because I have a very puny tree so far. I did find that Trader Joe's has sparkling water in blue bottles so that is my plan - drink lots of water so I can use the bottles on the tree.
I really want only blue bottles on the tree but I am using green ones also for now. Hopefully I can replace them eventually with blue.
Bill planted the tree trunk several weeks ago but finally got around to drilling the holes for the sticks to hold the bottles a couple of days ago. I need lots more bottles for it to really look good. It is great with the sun shinning on it.
I have been collecting photos of bottle trees for at least a couple of years and now I finally have one!
