Plant cage from folding camp chair

Hi our dfosterd left one of those nice folding chairs with the metal tube frames in our garage. Cept this one was a mess. I took the fabric seat/back and armrests off which required a screwdriver, turned it upside down and put it around a hollyhock clump. I drove the metal that extended up into the seat back into the ground. It looked a little ugly at first but now the hollyhock is growing around it, and it will be very sturdy - needed for this clump! Another advantage of it is that I could open it really wide to lower it over the clump then make it as narrow as necessary (which also make it taller). I put pretty rocks on the little flat plastic feet, but will try to come up with something better.
Oh, and I put the fabric seat/back in the garden path as mulch.
