More Candy Corn!

I liked my candy corn project yesterday so much that it gave me an even bigger and better idea.  So, last night I ran out to pick up some medium sized terra cotta pots and got to work as soon as I got home.  Here is what I did:

First I primed my pots with latex primer.

Then I painted the layered colors of the candy corn.  I didn't take pics of this because I figured it's pretty self explanatory.  After the paint was dry, I used a stencil to trace on some letters spelling out Trick-Or-Treat, and then painted the letters black.  Painting the letters was the most tedious part.

 Here are my cute candy corns!!  I think I'll put them on the front porch surrounded by pumpkins!

 Like I said yesterday, I didn't want the lines to be straight, but if you do, just use painter's tape and that should do the trick.

I also think it would be really cute to get the big terra cotta pots and use them as pumpkin stands!!  I don't have any pumpkins yet, otherwise I would have tried it with these.

The total cost to make this project:  $9.00 for the pots.  I had everything else on hand.

Here is where I'm linking up today:
