Have you seen a bottle tree? Do you have one? I've been wanting one all summer long. Last summer, I stuck landscape sticks in the ground in my flower beds and put bottles on them all over the place, along with some pretty old floral plates that I "planted" in the ground.
This year, I've been so busy with the booth, and with running north for vacation and my grandma, that I never got around to planting plates or bottles. I did however, talk Kevin in to a quick little welding job this afternoon!! He made me a bottle tree of out some scrap metal rods he had out in the barn.
I am still looking for some red, yellow and purple bottles that will fill in some of the green and brown spots, but I'm pretty excited with how it looks, and I haven't even scrubbed the weld spots with a wire brush or painted it yet!!
I went to a local store because I found a wine online that comes in a red bottle and it said they carried it...not any more I guess! I did find a cool white bottle that I bought. I poured the wine into a different jug in the fridge. I really could care less about the wine itself...I'm interested in the bottle only. The website for the wine in the red bottle listed another party store that might have it, so maybe next weekend when I am out looking for sales, I'll stop in to see if they have it. I won't make a special trip again.
I wonder if I could spray paint some dark green or brown bottles with high gloss bright colors...what do you think? Do you think it would turn out?
