15 Minutes

An easy and fun fall craft that nearly anyone can make!

• These were made with miniature flower pots. There is no reason you couldn't make these using larger pots. 

• Also, this uses a glue gun. While simple to make, if your child is making these candy corn pots make sure you are comfortable with him/her handling a hot glue gun. The alternative is Marine Goop (which dries clear) and all you would have to worry about are fingers glued together. :-)

• Hot glue the end of your white yarn to the bottom edge of your terra cotta pot and begin wrapping it around and around until you get about ¼” way up.

• Now continue to wrap your white yarn back down to the bottom of your pot, making a second layer of yarn.

• Once you reach the bottom of your pot, cut the yarn and hot glue the piece of yarn down onto the wrapped white yarn.

• Now repeat steps the last three with your orange yarn, starting right where you left off with your white yarn.

• Now repeat steps first three steps with your yellow yarn for the remaining open area of the pot.

• Measure out 6 pieces of yellow yarn about 14″ in length and tie the strands into a knot towards the top.

• Braid your strands together then tie the end into a knot.

• Hot glue the braided yarn onto the rim of your pot, trim the knots off the ends and carefully glue the loose ends together on the rim.
