I love topiaries, so I decided to repurpose a HUGE Christmas ornament into one. I added a coat of plaster over it, and several coats of paint and glaze to make it look like old concrete. I white washed an old flower pot I had, and just put it all together adding moss. 
This is how it started out, its 15 long.

I found these ornaments for 75% off this week. As I was walking out, a lady said, "Oh, you got some new Christmas decorations." I wanted to say, "Oh, honey, you have NO idea what I am going to do with them".
