Flower pots might be my new favorite craft supply! If you love flower pot crafts too, check out some of my others: sugar skull flower pots and my scarecrow flower pots. To round out my fall themed flower terracotta pot crafts it’s only natural that I create a Halloween flower pot craft.
Make These Terracotta Flower Pot Halloween Crafts
These little pots are super easy and fun to make plus there’s a ton of possibilities. Fill them with candy corn, mini halloween treats or succulents or you can just leave them as is and set them out for fun Halloween decor.
Halloween Flower Pot Craft Supplies
- Mini Terra Cotta Pots – 1.5″ or 2″ pots
- Acrylic Paint – I used Arteza acrylic paint. I liked how well it easily covered the pots with just 1-2 coats.
- Paint Pens
- White Uni-Ball Gel Pen – this is one of my favorite ways to easily add white details. It is much easier to control than a paint pen.
- Paint brush
- Sealant (optional)
See the video on how to make your own Halloween Flower Pots and then see the step-by-step directions below:
Painted Halloween Flower Pot Craft Directions
- Start by painting your terra cotta pots with acrylic paint.
2. Add face details using paint pens.
3. For the white details like the inside of the eyes and details on the cat, use the uni-ball white gel pen.
4. If you want to seal the finished Halloween flower pots, this sealant will give a nice glossy finish.
More Clay Pot Painting Ideas for Halloween
If you’re looking for Halloween themed painted inspiration to try on your clay pots, here’s some close ups of the ones I made. They turned out so cute, and they’re super easy to DIY even if you’re a beginner.
Mini Terracotta Pot Painted Ghost
Paint the whole pot white then add the little ghost face with black. I thought the pink cheeks added a cute touch!
Black Cat Terracotta Pot Craft
I did this black cat by painting the entire terracotta pot black with craft paint. Then I used a paint pen to add the details.
Pumpkin Mini Candy Dish Made From a Flower Pot
Can’t have Halloween without pumpkins! And it’s one of the easiest designs to paint on a flower pot. Just paint the pot orange, then draw on the cute pumpkin face! Try making multiple pumpkins with different faces then filling them with candy corn for a cute Halloween decoration idea or school craft.
Frankenstein Monster Flower Pot Painting Tips
Pictured above. First paint the whole flower pot green, then add on the black details. Once they dry you can paint in the white for the eyes without smudging.
Cute Candy Corn Clay Pot Tips
Pictured above. This one can be tricky because of the three colors. If you want perfect lines, paint one color at a time and use painter’s tape to tape off a straight line. Or just free hand it like I did – I think imperfect craft projects add to the homemade charm.
