Clay Pot Jack O' Lanterns

My niece, Emma was coming over for a day of crafting fun so I was out in the garage prepping a project that I thought we could do.  The project I "thought" we would work on required a coat of Krylon's Orange Burst.  While prepping the project I was thinking of what to do with the rest of the spray paint.  It was at that time I spotted six new clay pots sitting on my potting bench.  I then remembered watching a video from Stacy Williams on how she turned a simple clay pot into a super cute Jack O' Lantern and thought it would be a great project for Emma and I to do.

Emma arrived and I had her get into a painting top and we headed outdoors to spray paint the pots and my original project.  Be forewarned, you may need your shades to cut down the glare.... ;)

While the pots were drying, I had Emma look around the yard for small sticks that fit into the holes of the pots for our Jack O' Lanterns' stems.  Then while going thru the garage I dug thru some old silk flowers and found a spray of autumn leaves for the tops.

Once in the house, I showed Emma how to cut vinyl from my Cricut.  For the face I used an image from my Artbooking cartridge and sized it as Stacy Williams suggested in her video.

Once the clay pots were dried, we applied the vinyl (you'll need to burnish real well in order to stick on the glitter) and hot glued the stem, leaves and ribbon and viola' now have a super cute Jack O' Lantern.
