Pulp Fiction Witch

I thought of those great antique pulp Halloween candy containers when I found these fiber seedling pots. (okay, so I lied about the fiction part in the title)

Cut, glue and paint to make a cute little witch candy box. All for about 25 cents.

Materials
3 fiber pots
tacky glue
gesso
black, pale green and white acrylic paint
permanent black marker
brown paper bag

Tools
scissors

Remove the bottoms from two of the pots and set them aside. Slice and open both. Download and print the hat pattern. Cut the hat shape out of one of the opened pots.

Place mouth of the intact pot over one of the opened pots and trace the diameter. Cut two of these shapes. Cut out the witches face - about the shape of an elongated quarter - from a scrap.

Cut a thin strip, the height of the hat from a scrap. Glue half of the strip to the inside of one of the long edges of the hat. Allow to dry then put more glue on the other half of the strip. Circle the hat around and press the remaining edge onto the strip. Hold for a few minutes.

Cut the bottom off of the remaining pot. Glue the mouth of the pot onto one of the large circles. Trim to fit. Glue the hat onto the other circle.

Glue the three pot bottoms together. When dry, trim so that they are a bit smaller than the open bottom of the intact pot.

Glue the three pot bottoms to the middle of the bottom of the hat. Glue the face to the front of the pot, just below the opening. (sorry, I forgot to take a picture)

Tear a few scraps into small pieces. Soak in hot water for about 1/2 hour, then grind up in a blender or food processor, adding a squirt of glue. Drain and squeeze the pulp. Mold into a nose, the size and shape of a jelly belly jelly bean. Glue to the middle of the face. Allow to dry overnight. Cover with gesso. This seals the porous pots so they'll use less paint in the final process.

Paint the witch and her hat with the black paint; inside and out. Paint the face a pale green. When the green is dry, add two small white dots for the eyes. Draw eyebrows, a mouth and irises to the face with the black marker.

Cut a 2 inch width of paper bag long enough to fit around the pot, excluding the facial area. With your scissors, make 1/4" strips for hair, leaving a half in uncut. Glue the uncut edge to the top of the witch body, folding the very top to the inside. Crunch each strand of hair.

Fill with black licorice jelly beans, candy corn, gummy worms or some other appropriate Halloween treat.
