Each month, this group of #myfavoritebloggers chooses a theme {remember last month’s apple posts?} and we all post our projects on the same day.  At the bottom of my post, you’ll find thumbnail links to each of these fabulous pumpkin crafts, activities, and recipes!  Sound like fun?  Before I share my project, I’d like you to meet the beautiful and talented bloggers who are joining in the fun today:

We actually made this particular project a few years ago with some really good friends of ours!  They love making crafts too, so we had a festive pumpkin-making playdate!  I posted about it then, but that was when I had about six followers and two of them were my hubby and my mom, so I thought it was worth sharing again with the larger community!  Here’s how we made it:

– terracotta pot
– black and orange acrylic paint
– paintbrushes
– Mod Podge or other sealer

Step 1: Paint entire pot orange and let it dry completely!  {I think waiting for it to dry so you can add the face is the hardest part!

Step 2: Paint a face any way you like using black paint!

Step 3: Seal with Mod Podge or other sealer.  Let it dry completely!

Step 4: Fill with candy and enjoy!

This is such a simple project to do and incredibly inexpensive!  The pots cost 89 cents a piece, and we already had the paints and brushes on hand.  Each year, Little Crafter looks forward to getting his out and filling it with his favorite Halloween candy…usually lollipops!

  1. I love that this is a kid-friendly craft. We will most definitely be trying our hands at this. I can imagine how much fun my girls will have “designing” Jack’s face!
