My Bottle Tree

Here's my bottle tree that I bought a couple of weekends ago at an art festival. If you're not familiar with bottle trees...their folklore heritage believed that evil spirits would get trapped inside the bottles...yada yada...BUT I just wanted one because I thought it'd look cute in my yard!

Here's a great link if you'd like to learn more:

Most people use empty wine bottles on their tree but I wanted something a little more original. So I found these to get me started...

I love the colors but wish they were a little more substantial in size. I tried grouping them all together to see how it would be with a whole tree of these smaller bottles. But decided it was "too much".

So I think I'm going to use them as "accent" bottles with the majority being clear larger bottles. Now I've got to start my "clear" bottle collection.
