Blue Bottle Trees?

I saw this article today and at first I thought it was a real tree with flowers that look like bottles.

Turns out it’s another way to deter evil spirits from your home. I’ve always wanted to make a wishing/blessing tree by tying ribbons on the branches. Now I’m thinking I want a blue bottle tree too!

What do you think of this tradition? Would you do it?
