      Wine bottle waterer. I'm pretty sure I can round up some empty wine bottles for this project ;) Maybe, even a beer bottle would work. :o)

      Or try a vintage bottle to add some character! Why spend money on some as seen on TV self watering plant globes? Recycling is free. Fill an empty wine bottle with water and stick it into a potted plant to water it while you are away or just because you are too busy to water. Wine bottles are best because of the long thin neck and the glass is heavy enough to stand up to light winds and not come out.
