Ive made over 200 bottle trees in many different styles and shapes, these are a few.
I only offer the basic tree for online purchase: as seen in main picture.
They are just under 6ft tall with anywhere from 12-15 limbs for bottles. The stands are made to accommodate stakes to hold the tree down. (If the tree is intended for concrete just replace the railroad spike with a washer and expanding concrete bolt-not included) The pieces are signed and numbered, shipping and handling is 125$ in addition to the tree.
Trees are sold Without bottles, you may purchase and assortment of Blue, Green & Yellow wine bottles also on this site.
History of Bottle Trees: The longer i do these the more stories I hear about where they came from… One story is from African funerals. Those at the funeral would carry bottles on sticks to catch evil spirits. When they caught on they would put a stopper in the bottle and throw it in the river. When African slaves came to the south east (particularly Mississippi) they would place bottles on the branches of trees. Older Southerners might remember blue milk-of-magnesia glass bottles on wooden or iron trees. This is a growing trend for outdoor decoration nowadays.
