The weather is so nice today! I decided to go out into the garden to add
a bit of whimsy to an area by the chicken coops.
My sweet Husband brought me these Iron Gates a few years ago.
He thought I would like them. He was SO RIGHT. I love them!
I have used them to grow SWEET PEA flowers, but decided I would
like to make a BOTTLE GARDEN.
First I gathered some bottles, new and old.
I also had a few vintage glass Insulators.
I used Bailing Wire and pliers
The first bottle I will make the loop large to fit over a doorknob.
Cut a piece of wire about 18 '' long.
Twist a couple times using pliers.
Wrap around the lip of the bottle and twist tightly again using pliers.
Cut ends so they are more even.
I like to curl the sharp ends using the end of pliers for a decorative finish.
Cut a 4'' piece of wire to make an ''S ''hook to hang on your fence or wood area
in your yard.
I hung this on the door while I made the rest.
Do you celebrate May Day ?
You could leave one on your neighbors door.
Here is a closer look.
For the Insulators, they will be flipped over so they will be hung upside down.
They are the perfect size to hold a tea light.
For safety reasons I prefer the battery operated type.
The Dollar Tree has the tea light size and the votive size both will work.
If we our outside enjoying our friends and family I don't want to worry about candles.
These have a flickering effect. You can turn them on ahead of time and
enjoy the mood lighting !
Look how beautiful they look on the table
When they sit upright. The tea lights fit under perfectly!
And at night.
They have a nice glow.
I hung the bottles on the fence, filled with water
and fresh flowers and added the tea lights to the Insulators.
I may add more bottles, but for now I like the way it turned out.
