flat bottle tree - would be cute with lights and dif shades of green bottles for Christmas

I totally want a bottle tree in my garden, but I don't want to buy it, I want some one who loves me to make it for me. :)

Bottle trees are a staple in many southern gardens.

I love bottle trees...great stories behind their start and wonderful color in the garden.

It used to be that you could see bottle trees scattered all over the Southern landscape. Usually in the country or along the bayous of Louisiana,...

Bottle Trees!

Bottle Trees were sometimes placed near the entrance to the house, so the spirits did not enter the house with you. The spirits would become mesmerized by the play of the sunlight through the colors of the glass, and become trapped inside the bottles. The bottles were periodically corked and thrown into the river to wash away the unwanted spirits. In another variation of this theme, the spirits are also trapped in the bottles, but are said to be destroyed when the sun comes out the next morning.

I so want a bottle tree....

Beautiful southern bottle tree. This one is more garden sculpture than folk art. I would love one.
