Doodsy is keeping us guessing. Could we be looking at the back of fixtures? Maybe the "top" of ones that hang from the ceiling?

I got these from Habitat restore.I assumed they came with globes but did'nt have any.There was six to a metal box.They looked like they may have went in a bathroom over a sink.I bought two of them,totaling 12 on each box.I removed them off the box,painted each one and put a coke lid in each one.I then added a little 'bling' in the center.I cut 12 dowels and painted them green.I then used green plastic clothes line.I put two holes that went all the way through the center of the dowels.I weaved it through the holes and caulked the ends and pushed it back in the holes. I used spray paint from walmart but used my metallic paint in bottles(walmart)to highlight the centers of each flower.I put them in the yard in front of my nadinas.
