This idea comes from a segment on “Live With Regis and Kelly”.
Didn’t think you could do anything with that cheap patio umbrella you bought a few months ago? If you have an umbrella that is broken, ripped, or otherwise unusable you can use it to add to your Halloween or autumn decor.
Strip the fabric off the umbrella spine. Invert the spine so that the handle and post of the umbrella now look like the trunk and the spines look like branches sticking up from the trunk.
Place the umbrella in a pot and attach with hot glue or wire whatever decorations you choose.
