Projects for glass bottles other than bottle trees

bookjunky4life(5 Central IL)March 27, 2012

I'm undecided as to whether a bottle tree is my style. I'm trying to find ideas for using them as outside decoration, other than bottle trees. Preferably, some way that allows light to flow through them.

I cut off the bottoms and line my driveway with them. I use the tops to make windchimes and also hang votive candles inside and sell them at a nearby store.

Look on etsy.com for all kinds of things you can make with them.

The husband wants me to try to use a string of white Christmas lights and the blue budweiser platinum bottles to make party lights for our camper.

Book -- that would look awesome ! Blue bottles with clear white lights in them . I think it would be easy for a creative person like you ! Don't hesitate to ask questions if you need help . Tossing around ideas helps everyone :)

I put some of them around the corner of my flower beds. Put a short length of rebar in the ground and put the bottle over it. Helps keep the hoses out of my flowers as well as looking pretty.

I've used brown beer bottles for that before.

I have a metal thing that I'm going to stick some of my blue bottles into as soon as I figure out how to mount it in the garden. I'm not sure what it is, maybe a heavy duty cupcake stand or some sort of specialty stand. I just realized the other day that it can old bottles. Its too short unless I raise it up somehow.
