Re: Bottle Christmas Tree

Thanks for all of the friendly "welcomes". I look forward to seeing everyone else's winter projects. And to answer LuAnn's question, I used that wonderful product, Gorilla glue. First I used an old cabinet door from a kitchen remodel and glued down a row of bottles (I went heavier on the glue at this part to make a stable base). Then I built on that by adding two tiny drops of the glue (so the foam was not showing or overtaking the piece) at 1-2 O'clock on the left base bottle and 2 drops at 11 o'clock on the right base bottle, and then placed a bottle on top of them. I kept building up as each level dried. Then I was able to pick the piece up by the cabinet door base and set it on the antique crate. After I posted, I saw some other giant trees on the internet made of wine bottles that were standing up, but I had not seen any made with the bottle on the side. I hope these directions helped.
