I found an awesome stained glass lampshade at a thrift store for $16. It was missing one piece on the top edge, one piece needed glued back into place, and a few cracks and chips here and there. I loved it! And ever since I saw someone's pin on Pinterest about turning one of these things into a flower pot, I've always wanted to do it.
I got a little crystal bowl at the thrift store for $1 to go on the bottom so it would hold the lampshade as well as catch any draining water.
Then I chose a plant, filled it with soil, and I had a new quirky houseplant!
