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!
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
- Clear Cellophane Bags
- Orange or Yellow Ribbon
- Candy Corn!!!
Simple Steps To Make Your Own Candy Corn Flower Pot Candy Favors
- Use the paper plate as your paint palette. Squirt each color onto the plate as needed.
- 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.
- Once dry you can add decorative dashes around the edges of each stripe with the black paint marker for a little extra detail.
- Take your painted pots outside and give them a light coat of clear sealer inside and out.
- 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!
