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.
