Wonderful bottle tree! There is a guy in Wisconsin who makes similar bottle trees out of rebar. I thought of buying myself one once the sale of our house is complete ... kind of like a house warming gift to myself. lol I like the different colored bottles on yours too.

RE: bottle tree

nanatricia- You had a pipe with 4 pieces of rebar in it, and then you wired more pipes to that one and put rebar into those?

I love all of your photos and I added your water lily photo (the one with the three flowers) as the background on my computer. I love it!! Thanks

RE: bottle tree

This is great. I don't weld either.
I need something where I just cut down my hollyhocks.
Thanks for sharing 'tricia.
Sprout, I think she wired more rebar to the original rebar, not pipes to the original rebar.

RE: bottle tree

What size rebar? I got some for a tipsy pot, and it was so tough, I couldn't bend it or cut it. I had thought about doing something with a coat rack as the base, wrapping wire aournd it to kind of look like bark somehow, but I need to check into rebar sizes.

Kathy- Thanks for the clarification!!

bverste- My husband bent rebar in a way I had never considered. He put it in a vise, slipped a pipe over the rebar and pulled on the pipe, bending the rebar inside.

Great bottle tree, nanatricia! And a very unique way of substituting wire for welding! Looks great! TFS! Jeanne S.

RE: bottle tree

some movie i watched a few years back had the bottles hanging from a tree. they were tied somehow from the bottom and hung so that the opening of the bottles hung downward- the premise being that evil spirits would get caught up into the bottles and be unable to escape. anyhow it looked really cool. i have got to get to work! lol

RE: bottle tree

Your very motivated to work with that rebar and wire. It turned out great. I like the modern feel it has to it. I like the different colors too.

In the movie O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU there is a bottle tree in the scene where they are getting away from the barn in the old car. The gun shots hit the bottle tree and glass goes ping, ping, ping.

It was the third time that I watched the movie before I noticed that.
