How about covering the drain pipe sections with tile mosaic as plant stands? The mosaic could be a combination of tiles, marbles and plate shards. A standard flower pot will fit into the opening very nicely.

Subject: An Idea for Tiles?
I saw on my local freecycle group that someone is offering about 24 - 8" diameter and 12" tall cylindrical clay field tiles - the kind they used for drainage before plastic tile. I'm intrigued, but haven't got any idea what we could do with them. Anybody have an idea for what I could have my classes do with them, maybe as an item for my kids to offer for sale to help offset field trip costs? I know terra cotta can be painted with acrylics - I've done it with flower pots. Just need an idea for what use they could have....
