Trick or Treat Candy Pot



Paint your own terra cotta flower pot with pumpkins and spiders to serve candy to trick-or-treaters this Halloween. This colorful Halloween craft project will delight your visitors.

Halloween Candy Pot


  • terra cotta flower pot the size of your choice (I used an 8″ wide pot)
  • 3″ piece of card stock
  • paint brushes
  • 4 colors of DecoArt Patio paints: Wrought Iron Black, Citrus Green, Petunia Purple, and Tiger Lily Orange


  1. Paint the inside of your pot and the outside rim with the green. Draw a black line around the inside bottom edge of the rim, then paint purple dots spaced on the inside rim.
  2. Paint the the remainder of the outside pot black. Paint spiders as shown spaced around the rim with black paint.
  3. On card stock, draw a 2″ wide pumpkin and cut out to create a pumpkin shaped hole in the card stock. Use the pumpkin opening as a stencil and paint the pumpkins on the pot with orange. Paint the mouth, nose and eyes with black paint and a stem with green paint. Paint purple dots randomly between the pumpkins.
  4. Fill with candy or fruit and have a fun, spooky Halloween.
