Southern folklore has it that if you hang bottles on a tree in your yard, evil spirits will get sucked into the bottles at night getting trapped inside. When it's daylight, the spirit in the bottle will burn. The end result is that you and your home are protected from vile spirits.
**bright color bottles are traditionally used to make bottle trees**
Does it work? I say it's always better to err on the side of caution.
I just like old bottles so any folk lore involving glass appeals to me.
Then I got to thinking that I could use a mini bottle garland in the house.
Maybe not for capturing spirits but a mini bottle garland does make for a nice impromptu vase.
