Beer bottle bush.  Truck wheel used as base.  The stalks are 1/4" rebar (pencil rod steel). Of course I had to empty the bottles before I could use them on the bush.  Waste not, want not. Welding done with a Millermatic 211.  When the wind blows, the bottles hit against the stalks and sound like a wind chime.  My wife really loves the sound...and is the world's most tolerant women for letting me put my stuff in our front yard.  Obviously we are not in a deed restricted community.
