Could you use clay pots?(spray painted in which ever color you choose) Then with some dirt/rock filling and maybe put a foam circle on top with some flowers to make it more attractive looking?

hmmm…I bought some at Michaels that were for a tabletop, but they had a metal base.  It depends on the height.  If theyre very tall, youll have to cut them or support them up high.  Id suggest buying some plaster of paris and setting them in that in a coffee can or clay flower pot, then covering that (maybe with moss or flowers.)

I do think they sell bases that you can stick them in too…

Use inexpensive clay pots – decorate/paint/spray/cover to match decor.

For the quick and less stable route – use a styro ball that fits snugly in the pot and push hook into it.  You can put silicone caulk in the holes and under the styro to secure it.  Cover styro with moss/fabric/etc.

For a more difficult, but longer lasting idea, fill the pots with a half stro ball (less snug fitting) add a bit of cement or plaster to the bottom of the pot, place styro, insert the bottom of the hook and cover with plaster/cement.  add moss or “dirt” over cement.
