I'm using 10" terra cotta flower pots. Make sure to remove the labels from the flower pots. Then wipe them down with a wet towel to remove any dirt or debris on them. This is important because if they are dirty the paint won’t stick properly. Let them dry completely before you start painting.

Prep the Flower Pots

The type of paint you choose depends on where your flower pot Frankenstein is going to live. If it's going to be inside, then you can simply use an acrylic paint. However, if it is going to live outside then you need to use a paint that can withstand the elements.    I painted this first flower pot with Folk Art Chalkboard Paint.

    1. Thank you so much Marie, I really appreciate it. Halloween is one of my favorites and I want to keep the fun alive for all the neighborhood kids 🙂

  1. I love your flower pot creations. I inherited a lot of flower pots from my mother and I love all of the ideas that you have given me on how to use them (besides planting flowers). This Halloween Frankenstein Candy Holder is so cute. This may be a great idea to just put out on the porch with Covid. That way, if trick-or-treaters come, they can just take the candy. Thank you for sharing.
