Placing bottles on trees and bushes originated in Africa and Haiti from the people forced into slavery and made to leave their country. It is said, that the bottle captures evil spirits before they enter the home keeping those inside safe from harm.

Bottle trees come from the voodoo religion - people believed that when an evil spirit sees the sunshine dazzling from the beautiful bottles, it is enamored and enters the bottle. Like a fly, the evil spirit then becomes trapped within the bottle; too dazzled by the play of light, the spirit prefers to remain in its colorful prison, rather than trouble the world of the living.at cape coral by calamity kim.
