Christmas Bottle Tree
I finally got around to making a Christmas bottle tree in the front yard. It's built around a garden obelisk, but could be made on a sturdy upside down tomato cage, windmill base or anything else that would support it. It's 58 inches tall, not counting the top bottle.
The next photo shows it almost half finished. I wired one string of bottles at a time, twisting the wire in between bottles, then put the 'skirt' of bottles around the obelisk, starting at the bottom. They're blue beer bottles, which are the easiest to find a bunch of. There's a blue flower pot upside down at the top to hide the wire on the bottles and a wine bottle just sitting on top. We strung some different sets of lights around it without good results, so have to experiment more with lights.
