Jack-o'-lanterns don't have to be the only handmade Halloween decoration adorning your porch or windowsill. Flower pot decorations are another inexpensive, easy craft and good for a range of ages.
- Small, terra-cotta (clay) flower pots
- Acrylic paints and brushes
- An assortment of little accessories for kids to use as pot decoration (pom-poms, googly eyes, construction paper, yarn or muslin for mummy making are just a few ideas).
Set up a craft table and invite kids to make their own Halloween pot. When dry, use to hold candy, pencils or maybe plant a pumpkin seed leftover from when you carved your jack-o'lantern.
Turn your candy serving bowl into a handmade masterpiece with a larger flower pot and paints. Give the pot a good base color both inside and out, allow it to dry and apply your devilish design. Fill with candy and wait for the tricksters.
