Watch: Bottle Trees

Photos by Felder Rushing, author of Bottle Trees and the Whimsical Art of Garden Glass,

Before being introduced to America in 1600s, ancient bottle trees originated in the Middle East where, based on 3,000 year old Arabian folk tales (remember Aladdin and his lamp genie?), they were thought to capture bad spirits. Whether or not you buy into superstition, they are certainly interesting garden accessories.

Create Your Own Bottle Tree

We offer several ways to get started on your own creation:

  • Bottle Tree: Made of powder-coated steel, this tree is 63" tall when installed and includes four 7" ground stakes for stability. Holds up to 16 1-liter bottles.
  • Rainbow Bottle Tree Set:  This set includes our steel-frame Bottle Tree and 18 painted-glass bottles in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors.
  • Bottle Tree Sunflowers: Add a festive finish to your bottle tree with these handcrafted sunflowers. Made from copper-colored, powder-coated steel, they complement the colorful bottles and add brilliance when the sun glints off the shiny finish.
  • Colorful Bottles: Set includes three 8-3/4" bottles (one each of amber, red and cobalt blue) and three 12-1/2" bottles (one each of green, purple and orange).
