I’ve been getting into the spirit of Fall and decided that a Terra Cotta Pumpkin Candy Dish would be a perfect way to add a touch of Fall Decor to my home. These are pumpkin pots are super easy to make and are really quite adorable. I think they’d make great gifts, and the small ones would make fun party favors! Psst – have you seen my Terra Cotta Pot Apples? They’re so cute and make great teacher gifts.
Pumpkin Craft Tutorial
Terra Cotta Pot and Dish – make sure they are the same size
Wood Knob or Spool
Strong Adhesive, I recommend Gorilla Superglue
Orange and Brown Paint – I used Apple Barrel Paints in Territorial Beige and Jack-O-Lantern Orange
2. Paint the wooden knob and dish brown
3. Cut a thin strip from green cardstock. Wrap it around a pencil, winding it nice and tight.
4. Glue a fake leaf to the bottom of the terra cotta dish.
5. Glue the paper spiral to the wood knob.
6. Glue the knob and paper spiral over the leaf. I placed the paint bottle on top of the knob to apply a bit of pressure while the glue dried.
7. Fill with treats or other mementos and enjoy!
PLEASE NOTE: I did do a search to see if Terra Cotta Pots are food safe and they are not Food Grade. If you want to fill yours with treats you will want to line it with something prior to placing the food inside.
