Candy Corn Pot


Finished Project


I found this old flower pot discarded on the side of the road.  I cleaned it and let it dry.  Then I sprayed it with Valspar Premium primer from Lowe’s.  I did not paint the inside.


My pot was already sectioned into 3 sections, so I painted each section a different color. (To resemble candy corn I used white, yellow and orange) I used Liquitex brand acrylic paint that I bought at Hobby Lobby store. This photo is after one coat.
After two coats of acrylic paints, I sprayed the pot with Rust-oleum satin clear enamel.  This will help protect the finish. I use this satin finish for many of my projects. I then bought a prefinished potted plant from Lowe’s to sit inside my finished pot.  Mums are perfect plants for this project. After the fall holidays are over, I store this pot for use again next year!
