I scored at the recycling center yesterday. Went looking for something to make a Christmas wreath out of. No luck there, but I did find a bundle of these galvanized wire things called fence stays.  By today I had put some of them to use. I stuck 8 of them in a bucket of cement and on the tops I put whatever glass things I had sitting around collecting dust. Mostly candleholders. (Will probably have to take some of them off if the wind blows hard.) Thanks to all you guys I got ideas from!
