P is for Pumpkins

My friend Shelley recently sent Little Crafter a Michaels gift card for his birthday, and she also sent us printed out photos and directions for a ton of fun holiday projects.  Little Crafter’s favorite was a flowerpot painted to look like a jack-o-lantern.  We decided the only thing more fun than making it would be making it with friends!

So that is what we did.

We had a craft {and playground and Panera} playdate with some of our favorite friends, Owen, Ella, and Ms. Brandee

To make your own, all you need are flowerpots {any size}, orange and black or dark brown acrylic paint, and paint brushes.

First, you paint the outside of the pot orange.  Let it dry.  Then, flip it and paint the inside.

Finally, add a face!

I thought they turned out totally adorable!  We filled them with candy…AC Moore didn’t have candy corn in stock yet, so the kids picked out Jelly Belly packages.  Once those were gone, we replaced them with lollipops.  Did I mention that the pots cost 89 cents a piece?  If you already have paint, it doesn’t get much cheaper than that!
