I know there are a lot of people who have great imaginations. Help me out with this one. Whether it be got the backyard or indoors. I'd sure love some ideas on doing something with this stand. It's about 2&1/2 ft tall

    How about hanging old silver spoons and forks on it in an attempt at turning it into a wind chime? Or...hang all kinds of differently- shaped and colored prisms for something to catch sunlight? You could hang it upside down from an eve or a porch overhang for either application.

    How about taking pieces of green and red netting and tying it on-make it full and cut them so they will almost touch the other side getting longer as you go down the metal piece- can use peppermints take 1/8 inch ribbon and tie each candy on one end then tie it to the metal and space them into the netting to make a really cute center piece on a table top- Can do this also with a coat hanger-My Mom showed us how to make these wreaths to take to the old folks home many years ago-my sister and I would make 4-6 of them!!!Just pull the candy off or tie a small pair of sissors with a piece of ribbon to the top of tree-

    I would use it as a jewelry tree. You could hang necklaces on the area with the little balls and if you use dangly earrings the fish hooks can slide right on.

    Tryed that but it takes too much space and bigger necklaces just fell off. That's what I originally bought it for. It was in a store with tiny little ornaments for sale on it.

    You could place it on a dish or saucer of some sort and use it for n umbrella stand.

    Try letting a vine climb up it. It might be pretty.

    I would hang it and put necklaces on it and earings around the bottom. Or you could wrap it with fake greenery and put lights on it.

    I would spray paint it white and string lots of little white/clear lights then hang it on the porch ceiling or stand it on the porch/patio.

    This would look lovely if you train a flowering plant on it. I have done this with fuchsias.

    Turn into a chic fru fru lamp by running the electrical up the inside and dangling acrylic or glass beads as fringe all around.

    I would put it in the garden and grow morning glories or clematis or any other vining plant around it!

    I had one similar that I hung small 's' hooks on and made an awesome earring holder out of it.

    Hmmm...the star, of course, makes me think of Christmas. If you still receive Christmas cards, I think it would be easy to turn it into a way to display Christmas cards.

    Love the windchime idea, but if that doesn't work, I am a plant lover. May be harder to achieve in AZ-climate, but here; I would plant in a flower pot with some Thunbergia seeds also known as blackeyed Susan vine. It is easily grown from seed.

    I would plant a piece of ivy inside the base. Pin the base to the ground by using garden staples(found near landscape fabric. As the ivy grows train it around your metal frame until it eventually looks like a miniature evergreen tree. Looks really cute in the right place in your garden.

    Tie your scarfs on it

    I would hang it upside down in my potting shed, and use clothes pins to attach funky, favorite photos as well as project ideas ripped from my favorite DIY magazines.

    How about using it as a necklace and bracelet holder - assuming you don't have cats that would play with them like mine would!
