Some help needed here!


You might well ask! Well I need your help and suggestions please! We were given this little guy, by the family of an elderly gentleman who passed away. I would like to keep it, but it doesn't go with anything! He stands about knee height, is made of ceramic I think, he is not plastic, but not concrete either, quite light to lift. But I think if he fell over outside he may break. It came with the flowers ;) The urn bit at the top is hollow so I could put something in it?

Now, please, please please send me your ideas for what I could do with this!!
I look forward to hearing from you,
Carole

How about putting him in the garden. maybe antique him with bronzing stuff or fake stone spray paint to waterproof him and put a tiny pump in the pot and make a fountain out of him?

I like Susaw's idea but if you didn't want to put him outside why not use him to store your silk scarves in.
You could tie one around his waist and also allow the others to fall over the edge of the planter.

I would also resurface him, some kind of stone effect, then put a big chunky candle in the top

Wow, great ideas here! If I painted him, do you think I should use a colour? I think he would really make my garden look classy, but on the other hand, I do have a lot of scarves! But then I adore large candles! Hmmmmm, you're not making this any easier girls! LOL!

I'd paint him a stone color, to tone down his "brightness" & put him in your garden amongst other shrubs or grasses and plant ivy up in his basket.

Paint him bright colours and add a fruiting pot plant - strawberries, cumquat, lemon ... and place him at your front door, hehe. When can I visit?
