We (we meaning Bill and I) started for some odd reason collecting wine bottles. Not sure how it started, I am sure I was thinking I would do something with all of them. I love all the different labels and shapes. So, we grew quite a collection. It was time to do something with them. This is what I thought of….
We have a lake cottage (I say cottage, some say cabin…) It is secluded and in the woods and on a beautiful lake. It is a piece of heaven on earth I tell ya. Anywho, I had this thought for a thrifty but very quirky and fun garden border. How about we use all those wine bottles???? Huh hon, what do you think?? He is so sweet–because even if he thinks I am nuts….he goes right along with me—-and helps me too!
Love that guy;)
So here is what we did…
Started with several bottles…all different heights and labels–love that!
We ( and by we I mean Bill) dug a trench about 2-3 inches deep. I wanted to bury the bottle about half way to ensure they would stay put.
He is so happy about his first appearance on the little blog that I can’t shut up about…
Such a honey ;)
yes honey….can you keep digging…I have many more bottles…love you ;)
So he kept diggin, and I kept securing the bottles in place. I kind of let it just happen—just trying to not place bottles that were the same right next to each other.
Imagine some pretty new mulch behind the bottles ;) and maybe some pretty landscaping!
We are off to drink more wine so that we can finish our border! (not him, he sticks to bourbon; he is from Kentucky so it is sort of the law here ;)
See the newest video link to do another fun project with left over wine bottles….
Be inspired to be clever!
