I was needing a small trellis that would fit inside a flower pot, so I started looking through my box of "pieces and parts" to see what I could find. I found these lamp parts and then added a a tiny clay pot glued to the top where a small knob was supposed to be. In that, I even planted a tiny succulent. I spray painted the "mini trellis" and the flower pot all the same color. This is how it all turned out.
Maybe this will give you some ideas for recycling and reusing!
