What to do with an old torn umbrella?  Turn it into a trellis! I took the fabric off the frame,  drilled a hole in this extra picnic table I found at the swap meet and "Quickcreted" it in the ground. I then planted pink jasmine that is making it's way up to the pole; this Spring/Summer it should look amazing and smell wonderful!!
