I had a garden urn that I sprayed black and I used an iron stake to hold the pumpkins (faux pumpkins). I did put some rocks in the bottom to stabilize it as well.
I added this vase/candle holder and stuffed some plastic bags in the hole to hold it better. I made stencils on plain paper and filled the letters in with a sharpie. A little spanish moss and viola' Halloween topiary!
Now the best part....simply turn the pumpkins around and add some Fall leaves and instant Fall topiary!
