DIY Candy Corn Flower Pot

Friday, September 27, 2013

Wow, can you believe that this is the last week of September?! It's really scary to think that Halloween is right around the corner... get it?! Ba-dum-ching! Ok, I'm sorry about that... MOVING ON!  :)
This year I've been trying to do a little front porch decorating for the occasion. I'm not a huge fan of this particular holiday, but my husband and I love passing out candy to all the munchkins so for that reason I participate. One really awesome thing that I do love about Halloween is Candy Corn. I could eat that stuff all day long. When I saw a similar Candy Corn flower pot on Pinterest by Amber at Crazy Little Projects I knew I needed to make one for myself. So I did!
To do this yourself you will need the following supplies:
- Terra Cotta flower pot
- Acrylic Paint in white, orange, & yellow
- Paintbrush (any kind will work)
Now for the "how to":
>>> Step One... mark off areas for the three paint colors. You can use a ruler & a pencil and then use tape to divide the colors or just freehand it. I used tape, because I'm a messy painter.
>>> Step Two... paint your flower pot!
>>> Step Three... oh, wait! There isn't a Step Three! You're finished! How easy and awesome was that?!

Now my porch is festive and looks like one of my favorite Fall junk foods. I'm a happy lady!
