Beautify Me, Please!

Whether flea, or supermarket acquired, colored glass bottles can make an attractive garden art material.

Here, in the South, we like to use them to create Bottle Trees. Originated by African Americans, these trees are fun to look at, and do.
Empty bottles are sometimes positioned neck down (to keep evil spirits inside, from getting away).
So, if you happen to have pretty glass bottles, and wonder how to use them, well, perhaps you might like to consider building your
own Bottle Tree?
