Dollar Store Pumpkin Topiary

On my last trip to the Dollar store, I found these fabulously tacky Styrofoam pumpkins. 
 I spray-painted them white and painted the stems brown.
 Then I fancied them up with a little more paint. I also covered them w/ a little brown glaze.  Then I tied ribbon around the middle to hide the oh-so-classy seam and my not-so-even argyles.  Finally,  I used a BBQ skewer to stick them on top of each other and put them in a pot. 
Not bad for $3 and I'm sure those of you w/ actual artistic talent could something even better.

I am having way too much fun decorating for Halloween this year-check out all my ideas here.

What have you been working on?  Please link up to my party here.
