Fabulous & Easy Candy Corn Pots

Are you ready? Here we come!

I don’t usually do much with or for Halloween.  It’s just not one of my favorite holidays… so, I tend to celebrate fall more than anything.  However, this year I thought I’d share this fabulous and easy project.  My sister and I used to make these and sell them at craft fairs years ago. They’re fun, easy and include a festive sweet treat!

Supplies:  Yellow/Gold, White and Orange Plaid Acrylic Paint, terra cotta pots and brushes.
Total Cost: Less than $3.00.  Yup, now it’s fabulous and inexpensive!

All set?  Let’s do this!  Go ahead and mark with a pencil where you’d like your stripes to go.
I painted mine free-hand; however, feel free to use painters tape to tape it off for straight lines.
Now, let’s get painting!  You can start at the top, bottom or middle.
Whatever works best for you!  You’ll want to do a couple coats.
I guess, technically, you don’t have to paint the orange on, but… I like it to be consistent.
Yellow + Orange + White = Candy Corn!
Fill treat bags with candy corn — or my favorite: Candy Corn and Peanuts!
I tied mine closed with a piece of twine, then completed the look with a black bow.
Voila!  The perfectly sweet favor or gift for guests, friends, family and/or co-workers!
What do you think?  I think I’m off to snack on the candy corn and peanuts!  Cheers.

I’ll be partying {hereherehere and here}.

    This are great. :)

    Although we can’t buy candy corn in the UK :( I would fill the pots with fruit salads and black jacks :)

    Thank you for sharing

      Thanks, Claire! You can’t buy candy corn in the UK? Why is that? Well, I’m sure any sweet treat will do. Have a fabulous week, friend. HUGS!

    I love it- only I might have to chose a candy that I’m not as fond of- otherwise they might just get an empty pot.

      Giggle… Thanks for making me smile, Pam. My husband would probably agree with you, but I do get the necessary amount of sleep I need to keep functioning :) Have a lovely day. xo

    Those pots are really cute! Love the colors and the fact that it’s even “crafting for dummies”-friendly ;) Happy autumn, Kelly.

    So stinking cute! Simple, and easy…the idea is awesome! Would be a great Girl Scout project! Thank you for the inspiration, I just might use this for “BOOing” the neighbors! Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Libby! YAY! So glad you made them :) Actually, what I used to tie them was a strip of black fabric! Have a great week. Hugs, Kelly
