Coffee pots always make beautiful real/faux flower vases. Is it clear glass, use the half-marbles or other marbles/cut glass pieces you find at craft stores or Walmart (in the craft section) and put them in the bottom to hold the flowers up straight or to cover up the stems of the faux flowers. About $1.99 at WM and $1 at the Dollar Store. You could even GE Silicone II glue the half-marbles on it in a pretty flower design or another design and then do the flowers or as a holder for something else.

Another idea I've seen on the Garden Junk forum is they hang a watering can/tea pot/coffee pot from a post hanger and plant flowers in it or string some light blue beads and glue them to the inside of the spout so it looks like water is being poured out. Do a "search" in that forum on teapots, I think that will find that post.

Hope these ideas help you with your project, please post a pic for us to see when you're done.

Minature garden with tiny plants. You could put a top on it to keep in the moisture.

I had a small lamp that I made in high school that I didn't really like anymore. It was small enough it fit down inside an old aluminum coffee pot I had sitting in the kitchen (I have Primitive country decor) and voila' I have a light on my microwave now! I should have done it YEARS ago because it's a nice light to have on in the evenings to light up the kitchen without having to turn on the chandelier over the table.

I would also plant flowers in it. They could be used inside or out.

See Mojo's post about "why didn't I think of that."

If you like fish, try putting colored marbles on the bottom, and a beta, and then a few waterplants.
