I have been saving this wonderful old brass pitch pipe for just the right project. I found this I worn piece of sheet metal with rust & green tones and liked how the pitch pipe looks against it.
I used JB Weld to attach the pipe to the steel and then I placed the dried lavender stalks in the pitch pipes holes.
Overall it measures about 10 high by 8 wide.
Simple, simple, simple.

Why would anyone use one of those plain old glass vases when they could make something really unique like this?
