I think this would be a neat idea for tree-stumps remaining from downed trees, (which we have some taller ones not yet removed), to use for a plant stand, maybe with a solar light at the top. Nice idea for somewhere in the garden too!
Here's an easy decorating idea to use as your centerpiece or to give as a hostess gift this Thanksgiving! Place a Pillar candle inside a glass container. Surround the candle with such as acorns, chestnuts or pine cones.
