doing it myself: arrows, flowers & fire extinguisher[?]

Arrows: I needed things to clearly direct my clients to the cash register & "coffee embellishing" with help from my sister's Cricut machine, some fancy scrapbooking paper, cardboard & garden twine, I made these two lil' arrows. Not too shabby, eh?

Flowers: I used to have a clock hanging over the door to the patio, but after moving it to the front of the store, the back looked sad & empty. I decided that a little hanging "patio" or "jardín" sign was a necessity.
I found this tutorial by searching "wire and yarn sign" on Google.
Twisting the wire was actually way more of a hassle then I thought it was gonna be...
but it was all worth it in the end & I'm loving my new artsy sign!

I can't decide if it needs more flowers or if less truely is more.
What do you think?

Fire Extinquisher: We needed one. We bought one. We hung it up.
Now it's just...there.
I'm thinking about playing around a little so it becomes a little piece of quirky art instead of strictly serious...any ideas?
I have some of my own...but want to know what you guys would think is appropriate.

I have to have a sign saying "HERE'S THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER!!!"
So I could either make my own...or hang up the one provided...or hang up the normal one but dazzle it up a little?
