I am slowly filling up this bare flower bed with pumpkins and branches that have been spray painted black for Halloween.
Mums, yellow pansies and little pumpkins in a black pot say fall to me. However, shove some black sticks and branches into the middle and I can claim Halloween decor.
Find your sticks and branches, buy the cheapest black spray paint you can get your hands on and paint them. Let them dry and twist them into the dirt in your planter.
I’ve done this with a couple of planters…
This silver pot has a smaller pot inside of it. The pumpkin rests on the smaller pot, while creating a 2 to 3 inch gap to insert more black sticks.
