What is the history of bottle trees? Best I can tell (don’t quote me on this), their origin dates back hundreds of years. Evidently, it was believed that evil spirits would be drawn to the shiny bottles and become trapped inside. Folks would place bottles on trees around their home to keep evil from getting in the house.

Now, I don’t know about all that — but, I do know that today they are used as decorative art in gardens and landscaping. BottleTree.com has made having one super easy. They provide the “tree” and colorful bottles and ship everything straight to your house. They’re both stunning and unique.

    My husband makes them!vvThey are big in the south! My husband and I first saw them for sale at a farmers market in South Carolina. He does some welding, and started making them! He's made oh 5-6 so far, mostly for just friends and family. But we have one in our yard! No evil spirits here!
