  • I know of a friend who made an entire wall full of recycled glass bottles. It made a sort of stained glass effect. Highly unconventional but really quite pretty. Much too tedious for the average person though but my friend was retired and wanted something a little unique to fence in his garden. The fencing, or wall rather, ended up looking pretty nice and was a great way to recycle wine bottles!
