If you travel much in the Southern United States, you will find wine bottle trees being proudly displayed outside. You usually see them in the bayous or country side of Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky or Alabama.
Why do people make wine bottle trees? They say wine bottle trees will keep away evil spirits. Evil spirits that are looking for trouble are attracted to the beautiful colors and end up trapped in the bottle. They stay trapped until the morning sun comes out and burns them up, no more evil spirits!!
The blue bottles are for health and are said to catch the evil spirits that spread illness.
I like them and am thinking of making myself one for in my garden next year. It is a great way to recycle those old beautiful bottles.
