From Ashes to flowers

Hi there. This is an old ashtray stand that I had and when I saw the post with the paper cones of candy in the condiment tray I thought of this. I had used all the other parts in another project so all I had left was the beautiful stand and the round part with the holes. I found these fowers planted in little tins at the grocery store, and they fit in there perfectly. I tried to find glass cones  for vases and found some in a catalog but they weren't the right size. I will use more seasonal stuff as I find it, but wanted to show you all how cute this turned out. I really like it. Thanks, Georgia

It would also be cute to make some cones to fit it and put in some little Halloween treats for the boys and ghouls. You always have wonderful ideas! Thanks for sharing with us.
