My plans are similar to chris blue's. however. i'll be repurpossing a diseased 12' pine tree for the base and brasing rods with caulk to waterproof the joints for the bottles

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Whimsy in the Garden...This ain't your Mama's Flower Bed!
I can't think of anything more whimisical in the garden than a bottle tree. They are more typically seen in the Southern garden and are really beautiful when the sun sets them ablaze.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Winter Interest in the Garden
Blooms may be scarce in winter, but you'll always have color in a garden sporting an old-fashioned bottle tree. And you won't have to worry about "haints" hanging out in your winter garden...they'll all be inside the bottles.
Samantha Schoech added this to 10 Imaginative Garden Ideas
The bottle tree has a long and storied history originating in Africa and going strong in the South in the United States. It's thought to have originated as a way to keep spirits and imps away. A lot of my neighbors have dead trees in their backyards that are too expensive to get removed. You may as well dress them up, right? And keep the bad spirits away at the same time.
Debra Prinzing added this to Ornament Your Garden the Artful Way
There is definitely a place for the wacky or whimsical, like this bottle tree. Uninhibited works of art are ideal for the vegetable patch or the herb garden, where they are guaranteed to put a smile on your face each time you're harvesting salad ingredients.Plant choices should show off the best of your ornamentation, adding up to an artistic sum that is more delightful than its individual elements. Similarly, if your garden requires something useful, like stakes to hold tall lilies or dahlias, choose supports that are both decorative and functional.
