DIY: Hanging jar lanterns. The page gives you a link for the chained lid hangers pre made. I say use an awl and put your own holes in the lids then run chain or whatever works through the holes. This page has several mason jar crafts. Brilliant really.
Decked planting in old tubs and buckets make lovely nook displays. Make sure all containers have drain holes-with the bottom container having the most-it will collect all the runoff from the ones above.
