Make a frame out of 2 x 4's and attach either strips of wood to it. Anchor the piece to the house with masonry screws. Anchor the bottom by drilling holes in the bottom of the frame and secure it by pounding in rebar to about a foot deep into the ground or making the 'legs' longer by 18 inches and digging a hole to support the upright legs. Add quickset concrete and make sure the legs are level. The concrete will be sturdy by the next day.
