Check out how I created Jack O’Lantern Flower Pots! An Alternative To Using a Pumpkin for Halloween!
I went to Home Depot the other day and saw orange self watering flower pots.
Since I was in an Autumn state of mind, I realized that these looked very similar to fake pumpkins.
Of course I took it one step further, and the craftiness grabbed a hold of me.
I had bought a set of permanent markers the other day and as I looked at the containers I thought, “These would probably look great as Jack ‘O Lanterns.” I was right.
This Halloween craft was really simple to make, and I pretty much freestyled the “Stencils” from seeing other scary Halloween faces.
I also tested out artificial tea lights to see if these Jack O’Lantern Flower Pots would show up at night, and they did. I was so excited.
In the end though, I decided to put various purple flowers into the pots to give my Jack “O Lanterns “Hair”.
I used Mexican Heather, Coleus, and a some funky looking flowers called Celosia (they remind me of a Dr. Seuss character).
I even had a little help as well with the watering.
Of course what is really awesome, is once Halloween is over I can simply turn them around and use them as Fall Pots.
Have you made a similar craft before? What are the multiple uses you found for your container?
I am so happy about the outcome of these Jack O’Lantern Flower Pots. If you make them as well, enjoy!
