Have you priced those antique Halloween containers? Wow! Here's a way to make them for about 10 cents each.
3 fiber seedling pots
black and orange acrylic paint
gold glitter glue
colored tissue paper
electric tea lights
With sharp scissors, cut out two oval shaped eyes, a triangle nose and a banana shaped mouth from one side of the pots. Cut out triangles from another pot and use them as ears. Paint inside & out with gesso. The pots are porous and the gesso seals them nicely.
Cut triangular eyes and nose and a smiling mouth with sharp scissors. Cover with gesso.
Paint the inside black and the outside orange. Glue a small piece of yellow tissue paper to the inside of the pot, covering the openings.
Punch two holes opposite each other on the top of the pot. Thread thin wire through the holes to form the handle.
