    you could use dowels instead and make an umbrella stand

    Or gift wrap paper paper

    This thing is pretty cool looking but what is it used for?

    I could see it being a hanging planter... different rope, line it with moss and Coco fiber, and voila. Or put a light in it and make it a lamp maybe?
