Halloween Craft: Flowerpot Pumpkins

Flowerpot Pumpkins

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

With this nonperishable alternative to your classic jack-o'-lantern, you can assemble a whole lineup of party pumpkins in short order, no carving knife required.


  • Terra-cotta pots
  • Yellow craft paper
  • Mod-Podge Outdoor
  • Short, fat sticks


  1. For each one, invert a terra-cotta pot. Cut eyes, a nose, and a toothy grin out of yellow craft paper. Brush Mod-Podge Outdoor on the surface of the pot where you want the features to go and press them in place.
  2. To weatherproof your creation, apply a final coat to the entire pot. Finally, insert a short, fat stick into the hole for a stem.
