Mini Pumpkin/Jack-o-lantern Pots
When I saw some cute tiny 24 cent terra cotta pots at Walmart, I knew I had to make something cute out of them.
This mini jack-o-lantern was super easy to make. You could always skip the face and leave it as a pumpkin, or do what I do, after Halloween, I turn the face around, so you can leave them up through Thanksgiving.
Here is what you will need:
Orange spray paint (or you can skip this, and leave them terra cotta color)
Brown pipe cleaner
Green felt scraps
Spray paint pot and let dry . Draw on face with markers (optional). Cut 4 short pieces of pipe cleaner for stem, and twist them together. Then stick pipe cleaner in the whole in the pot to make your stem, along with a felt leaf. Great project for the kids to join in on the fun. Since they cost pennies to make, they would make great Halloween favors too.
