I Am Wondering If Any of You Have Bottle Trees in Your Yard?

This one is manmade, but I have seen bottles put on live tree branches. I am thinking of doing that with one of our trees and wondered if anyone has suggestions that has one.

    I'm wondering about wind. High winds have picked up my porch swing and blew it away. Was thinking if i did this with grandkids, would they stay put? Antone have experience with that?

    Maybe 15+ years ago, I purchased a metal bottle tree form from a catalog. Base wasn't strong enough to stand alone in high winds, so I had to 'stabilize it to the base and side of a Japanese maple tree. I use colored wine bottles, but also supplement with bottles from a craft store. It's cheerful in the summer sunshine and on a cold winter morning, it 'brightens up' the view from my kitchen window.
