Trapping Evil Spirits

A few years ago when we were at Kentuck we saw our first bottle tree and ever since have been possessed by them. We had to have one. So after drinking many bottles of wine we finally had enough bottles to make our own bottle tree. Last week, Deb spent a day in the barn welding rebar and this was the result.
What is a bottle tree?
The bottle tree’s origins can be traced back to Africa. It was believed that bottles suspended in the trees would attract evil spirits when the sun glimmered through the bottles. The evil spirits would then be trapped in the bottles.
