Very nice! I have an old stump that we left about 5 feet high when we took down a tree and I want to do the same thing. What did you use for your spikes? I was going to use rebar pieces.

Love the red bottles too :)

Is that a lave ear bottle I see near the top?

RE: The ongoing Bottle tree

The flamingo in the picture is beaded -- the rest of them in the row are painted as a giraffe,a zebra,military & a clown fish .
I used cut up brazing rods for the spikes. They're sturdier than I thought ! -- and lastly , I don't know what a lave ear bottle is ! LOL

Lavender !! LOL .... I thought you knew some fancy type of bottle ! I have 4 squiggle shaped bottles from the Goodwill - 2 are blue, one is purple & one is turquoise .
They're marked Ikea on the bottom. The plates are just hung with nails in the fence. They've lasted 2 years now !

So how do the nails attach to the plates? That would work really well for me since I seem to have started a glass flower factory!!
