Not sure if this is the right place, or even if this qualifies as a “craft” but I am so pleased with how it looks, I had to share it!

If you grow indoor plants, you rarely have enough sunny window space, right?  I strike a lot of  cuttings, and ewas looking for something a little more artful than a row of bottles on the window sill.  Like… a row of bottles on the window frame!

I started out with a few single serving-size wine bottles in blue glass from the recycling, and a couple of copper plated bell-hangers from the plumbing department of the big box hardware store. ($1.49 each.)

The screw that came with the hanger was reeeeeeally long, so I replaced it with one that only went about ¾” into the molding.  (Full disclosure; I own, and this is not original, historic molding.  I might have done this differently if I had a landlord, or this was other than cheap pine.)

I love the way the glass, the copper and the plants look together, especially when the light shines through the window.  And I still have the sill open for plants in pots!

Very pretty. I love the blue glas and the copper together. So glad you found a use for such beautiful glass bottles.

Beautiful, useful, and eco-friendly!

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

This is awesome! Such a cute idea, and practical too as it keeps the windowsill free!
