From the print edition, October 2012
By the end of the month, chrysanthemums have lost their lustre and you’re searching for something spooktacular to adorn your urns. Our solution? Just add pumpkins!
What you’ll need:
• Pumpkins (a variety of all shapes, sizes and colours)
• Artificial bugs, birds, rodents and flowers
• Black spray paint
1. Stack the pumpkins (thread on a large dowel if placing in a windy spot) and embellish with artificial bugs, birds, rodents and flowers, all spray-painted black.
2. For extra interest, we planted mini ornamental cabbages and English ivy around the rim of the pot.
