Bottle trees: an african-american folk/gullah art tradition to keep evil spirits away...may not work..but still pretty - there's a bottle tree in the yard of St. Luke's Reformed Episcopal Church, as part of an African art transformation done to the church yard.
Garden feature. The Bottle Tree is a southern thing. Quite lovely, I think I may want one! CGE
Bottle Trees. . The following is from the site where you can find more Bottle Tree ideas and info. . .Bottle trees originated in the Congo. Slaves who came to America hung up these glass bottles because they believed that they captured spirits. The bottle trees make a strange hollow noise when the wind blows through them. The people who made them believed that these were the spirits yelling to get out. Bottle trees became garden staples for folk artists in the American south. Today, you can see bottle trees in many gardens as the tradition lives on for aesthetic purposes.
this wine bottle tree would probably confuse the birds but it would look pretty cool in the back yard.

The bottle tree has a long and storied history originating in Africa and going strong in the South in the United States. It's thought to have originated as a way to keep spirits and imps away. A lot of my neighbors have dead trees in their backyards that are too expensive to get removed. You may as well dress them up, right? And keep the bad spirits away at the same time.
Bottle trees are more typically seen in the Southern garden and are really beautiful when the sun sets them ablaze. I LOVE my bottle tree!
