They were easy to make and I had the perfect bottles so I gave it a go.

I began with 2 bottles. You can use any kind of glass jar, I just happened to have some with a thin neck

I wrapped rebar wire around the neck and created a handle.

I filled the bottles 1/3 of the way with small pebbles then filled them the rest of the way with soil.

I added the plants: one succulent and one herb, then hung them from the corner of the gazebo.

They look great and the plants will hopefully take root and grow in their new homes. They are hanging partially covered by the gazebo so they won't get hurt in a rain storm. You can read about our gazebo by following this green link.
