Red Neck Watering Globes.

I have never had a green thumb, however I found that using a watering globe really helped my plants stay alive even when I forgot to water them! The problem has always been re-filling the globes. They blown glass openings of the globes themselves are a hit and miss situation. Sometimes the openings are just NOT big enough and you waste more water and time trying to fill them. And lets not begin to speak of the countless globes I have broken off the tip of because they are so fragile!
So I decided to come up with a solution of my own. Hence the Red Neck watering globes!

All you need is:

Empty Beer or glass pop bottles
Spray paint
Stickers or decorations if you so choose
Wine Bottle corks
Drill
Masking Tape
Clear acrylic spray sealer

Start with empty clean bottles, stickers removed (You can soak and peel then use Goof-Off)

Spray paint the bottle the color of your choice. (I even used a stone textured spray paint, and that one is my favorite!)

Once the paint is dry remove the tape carefully and apply any stickers, stenciling or decorations you choose.
Spray on an acrylic sealer to protect your “globe” from damage.
Take the wine cork and with a long drill bit drill a hole all the way through. ( You may want to experiment with how large you want the hole as this will determine the flow of water into your plants.
Now simply fill the bottle with water, cork and turn upside down into the dirt of your plant!
No more dead plants after vacation!
