Beer bottle blossom

I just recently found out about these, and i love them! Does anyone out there have a pattern for them. I have scads of bottles and I think these would not be too hard to make. Thanks

OH That is really pretty. It looks like wooden dowels drilled into the top of that post. I can see some thing through the bottle.

I was thinking of using short bits of rebar (18 inches or so) and having my friend weld them to a wheel rim or? Thought it would be pretty to have as the center like your flower. Then do some cement cast leaves around the base.

I love it also and agree it looks like wood dowels.

The nails is a great idea.... I can hardly wait to try this out. I have over 200 bottles and I have a blue garden these would be perfect in.

I would drill holes and drive rebar into them--wooden dowels rot too fast for me!
Or use the 12 inch nails that were mentioned.

That is really pretty! A row of green bottles at the bottom would look good too.
