this looks like a great mothers day/grandparent gift/ teacher gift idea. Lots of options with flowerpots, buckets, etc to put it in and with the types of flowers or stems to use and filling in the pail.
I really like this idea for an office or a library. Convert an old globe into a pendant light! Seems easy enough. Buy a lamp kit at your local hardware store, take apart a globe and drill a larger hole for the light. Put remainder of light together.
