Hanging planters from wine bottles -- Someone figured it out. Use a glass cutter to remove the bottom of the bottle, sand smooth so you don’t cut yourself. Make a ball of chicken wire or screen that will fit in the bottle, fill with moss. Put a sturdy wire through the top and attach to the wire ball. Add plant and hang.
Self watering planter made from recycled wine bottles. I'm thinking these would be perfect for herbs or african violets!
Self-watering planter made from recycled bottles. (I'd want to try this with a 2-liter plastic bottle, and cut the top off, so I could get the root system out intact for transplants.)
Self-watering planters like these aren’t a new idea; we remember our own childhood craft books that taught us how to poke holes through Dixie cups or invert two liter plastic bottles to grow our own little bean garden. This grown-up version is much better looking and works great for small herbs and plants. We used beer bottles for ours, but you could make a larger garden with wine bottles too.
