I wanted to grow Clematis and needed something for the trellis. I had an old christmas light deer that had some of the lights broken and not working. I pulled all the lights off and stuck it into my garden. I now have a beautiful deer shaped flower display.
My mother-in-law loved it so much, she put one in her garden too! She saved some money by finding some of the deer light frames at a yard sale. So don't throw out that metal frame if the lights don't work... just add it to your garden.
