Halloween Ornaments

I originally posted this tutorial a couple of years ago, but it is post that I frequently get asked questions about. Today, I have re-written it with answering questions in mind. If you still have any let me know! 
 You will need for the bat:
  • The smallest pot you can find ( I have seen them at Hobby Lobby and Michaels) 
  • Black and white paint
  • Black foam
  • Googly eyes
  • Black ribbon
  • Hot Glue

Paint the the little pot completely black, inside and out before adding the white face. Mine needed a couple of coats, but use your best judgement. I folded a small sheet of foam in half and free hand cut the wings. I then hot glued them to the bat. Loop both ends of a ribbon into the top whole of your ornament, tie them in a big not on the other side. If you tie your knot big enough on the other side, it won't slip out through the hole in the pot.

You will need for the candy corn:
  • The smallest pot you can find
  • Orange, white, black and yellow paint
  • Ribbon
  • googly eyes
  • Hot Glue


Paint the little pot white with a couple of coats before adding the orange and then yellow. The yellow will not cover the orange well, so try to keep the orange above the lip of the pot so you don't need to cover very much. Add the face with a fine paint brush and black paint. 

I still love these little guys. They are displayed in my house right now!

Love these! I even have some tiny flower pots I've been hoarding... I call it serendipity.
