    Fit it with a plain bowl and you have a very nice serving piece.

    make it a single hanging lamp, get kits from any hardware store. turn it up side down put a candle in it, big or small. I put mine in a gas fire place that had sand in it, turn it up side down put a candle in it. buy different shades for a fire place or in a garden, a bowl with sand in it then the shade up side down in it.

    I would make it a solar light for outside.

    it is so pretty and with the colours you could even fill it with pincones and Christmas pretties

    I could use this as a twine holder... I have the perfect spot . it is very pretty... I have also seen small lamps that this would look lovely on....

      I guess I should have added that the shade is 12" in diameter. I like your idea but really the only surface I could put it on is our dining room table. Thanks for replying.
