Bought a pair of goofy wall sconces at a flea market. Can't wrap my brain around how best to use them. They are shallow. Recycle?

I think they are great!

What are they made of? If its plaster, no plants.

If plastic, the plant in your last photo would be really cute. You would have to take it out of the pot and plant it directly into the sconce to give the plant enough room to grow. Then water carefully or figure out how to put drain holes in them.

How about big candles? Smiling

The wall sconces are plaster. In the last snap, the plant is growing in a sandwich bag. Makes it easy to water. I did put sphagnum moss around the rim of the sconce, which looked kinda good.
Hmm, candles. Interesting idea. I'll play around with them another week, see if they grow on me. If not, they'll be another thrift shop donation.

Could you seal the plaster against moisture and plant succulents that will drape over and hang down ?

or maybe Tillandia ?
