As a added suggestion, use some duct tape to connect and fasten the two cut halves. It definitely helps to prevent major messes or clean up if one of your house guess happen to knock it off the table.  Better yet, once assembled, punch two small holes in the top sides of the bottle, attach some fishing line, and hang like a garden planner out of the way.
