saw this beuty at a local school,it is made from recycled plastic 3l bottles,the bottoms sliced off and threaded onto bamboo stix one on top of the other,dispite the gaps it was suprisingly warm inside.



i may try this with cider bottles.............

I think I may have to build one of them for my garden and put it up next to my neighbours fence.  He doesn't even like the proper glass one thats already there.

Brilliant ;)

Bet it would look good using different coloured bottles, would also help with shading the sun if it got too strong ???
