DIY Autumn Crafts: Hand Painted Candy Corn Flower Pot Candy Favors

With Halloween and Thanksgiving just around the corner I thought I would share a fun Autumn Craft project today. You can make these hand painted candy corn flower pot candy favors by yourself or get the kiddies involved. It is a simple and fun Fall Craft Project. I do not know many people who are not a fan of candy corn. This time of year just makes me crave this sweet confection!

Hand Painted Candy Corn Favors For Halloween and Thanksgiving

To Make These Adorable Hand Painted Candy Corn Flower Pot Candy Favors You Will Need:

  • 2.25″ Terracotta Clay Pots – You can purchase these rather cheaply at your local craft store or flower nursery.

  • CRAFT PAINT in Orange, Yellow and White – There are many craft paints out there. I like Apple Barrel as they are reasonably priced and have great coverage. I also like Folkart Brand craft paint.
  • Paint Brushes
  • Black Paint Marker or Sharpie
  • Water for washing your brushes
  • Paper Plate
  • Clear Spray Sealer

Simple Steps To Make Your Own Candy Corn Flower Pot Candy Favors

  1. Use the paper plate as your paint palette. Squirt each color onto the plate as needed.
  2. Paint the clay pots as shown. Paint the bottom 1/3 white. Let Dry. Paint The Middle Yellow. Let Dry. Then paint the top rim and inside of the pot orange. Let Dry. I usually do two coats of each color.
  3. Once dry you can add decorative dashes around the edges of each stripe with the black paint marker for a little extra detail.
  4. Take your painted pots outside and give them a light coat of clear sealer inside and out.
  5. When completely dry and odor free, place a cellophane bag inside each pot, fill with yummy candy corn and close it by tying a neat bow with the ribbon!

Round up the kids, take them outside and make a bunch of these hand painted candy corn flower pots! It is a great way to keep them busy for an afternoon. Give them away at your next Halloween party or put one at each place sitting at your Thanksgiving table. Add a tag with a message or name on each one for an extra special touch. When the candy is gone you can slip in a votive or tealight candle and use them in your Fall decorating next year!

Happy Decorating!
