I found the butterfly idea on the web somewhere.  Out of needing something to do with leftover "stain glass" paint I found that making butterfly shapes out of empty plastic soda bottles was addictive.  Cut them out paint.  I'll try to post them.

Love the idea of room divider.....but  that would be great on window you do not want cover with heavy drapes.....

Nice butterflies! And I am so glad to see other people were wowed by the curtain thing too. The ladies at work just said, "Oh, that is SO something you would like!" I'm sure some of you are familiar with the tone that was used.

I hear you!! Yes, I have that problem also.  I want to move onto this "bottle" curtain after I do some catching up on some projects.  I wanna find a way to cut off the bottoms of those bottles without killing my hands with scissors.
