We planted a Brisbane Box tree in our front yard several years ago that never did very well – it never fully died, but never really grew. We finally gave up on it and I pulled it from the ground last year (I literally pulled it out of the ground in 30 seconds). Since it was such a terrible tree I was compelled to make it do something useful for once. So I took the root ball and about 5 inches of trunk, flipped that upside down, and bored out a pocket in the middle to display this air plant my daughter got me for my birthday. That dumb tree is finally beautiful.

Now that is definitely thinking outside of the box. Very inventive and it came out looking terrific.
