Outside of the Cone

>If you saw this three foot tall vine covered cone selling for three dollars at the thrift store, would you buy it?Would you take it home and wind tiny lights around it and use it as a rustic Christmas tree?
Or would you turn it upside-down, plop in a bunch of fake fall mums you had lying around, and hang it on your front door?

Isn't it fun to think outside of the cone?
