Found this beautifully aged copper fire hydrant in the yard behind an old shed. I love the color of it as the copper has changed to a patina green. But other than sticking a candle on it or turning it into a lamp, I have no real idea what to do with it.

Finished this project. Was at TJ maxx and got these dried flowers for 3.99. I thought the colors looked great with the aged hydrant and it makes an unusual showpiece. What do you think?
