    The monkey label is painted on and it survived a Canadian winter no problem. We put rubber washers between the bottles to keep out the water, but it didn't work very well. If you haven't seen it yet here is a video showing some of the mistakes and lessons learned while making the wall

    Peeling off all the labels was by far the hardest and most time consuming part.

    I did watch your video, several times. I baked the bottles in the oven for 20 minutes at 250 degrees. That worked really well. That's how I spent my Saturday night! I looked up the monkey wine and it's 50.00 a bottle. If I cracked it I would be furious? I live in NH so I expect a few breaks. Although I might take them in for winter. I did buy washers as you suggested.
    I need 48 bottles. I found some cheap ones at Christmas Tree shop that have no labels, what a joy that was.

    Thanks for all your advice. I will send a picture when it's done.

With wine bottles. Bottle trees are common in the southern United States, where legend portrays them as a way to capture evil spirits. Typically a metal frame or pieces of rebar are placed in the ground and topped with inverted wine bottles.For this creative take on a bottle tree, wine bottles were threaded onto pieces of rebar, making a unique and whimsical privacy screen.

I like that it's different, uses colors and materials--all while creating enough privacy and still being airy. Not really a fan of the bottles per se.

Would love a panel or two like this! It's rebar!

3. DIY-Ideen aus gebrauchten GlasflaschenHübsche, gern auch farbige Glasflaschen (vom Flohmarkt oder einfach Altglas aus dem Eigenbedarf) lassen sich nach einer gründlichen Säuberung auf unterschiedliche Weise zu neuem Leben erwecken. Oft kommt die Lichtdurchlässigkeit des Materials zum Tragen, sei es bei einer Verwendung der Flaschen als Lampe oder als Teil einer Mauer. Das Flaschen-Sammelsurium im Foto bildet – thematisch passend – die Rückwand einer Outdoor-Bar. Für diese Gartendeko wurden die Flaschen am Boden aufgebohrt und auf Metallstäbe gezogen.
