Affixed to an all-weather pedestal with a strong glue such as Liquid Nails (homedepot.com), a large saucer becomes a respite for your feathered friends. Fill it with water, and wait for winged visitors to drop by.
For a present that virtually wraps itself, tuck a few seed packets into a pot. Use the saucer as a lid, and top the whole thing with a ribbon and a handwritten gift tag. (Organic seed packets, by Martha Stewart Living, homedepot.com.)
If you're in need of a display for garden-party treats, turn a small pot upside down and glue it to a large saucer. Voila! You've created an outdoor-friendly dessert stand for your baked goods.
