How-to: Crystal Garland Those orphaned chandelier crystals that you sometimes spot, tossed into baskets at flea markets or splayed on doilies at thrift shops, are much too beautiful to waste. Linked together with rings of wire, a strand of delicate prisms and pendants makes a dazzling lampshade fringe or a dressy mantelpiece garland, bending the ambient light to give shimmer and shine to an entire room.

ADJUSTABLE LAMP USED AS A PLANT STAND It's really very simple. All that I did was remove the bulbs and hardware inside the lamp. I then turned the lampshade upside down and found plants that would fit inside. I sat the whole plant inside, pot and all. The light isn't harmed in the slightest as the plant will be watered at the sink and placed back inside once it is dry.
NOW that is cool! An old lamp repurposed into a planter. I pass on all types of cool lamps because I fear the wiring, cool idea!
