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.
Flower Pot Frankenstein
Many of you have seen my flower pot creations, my scarecrow, snowman, santa, & Uncle Sam. I'm at it again creating a flower pot Frankenstein, and wait until you see what I'm using him for! You can see more of my crazy creations here
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.
I painted the next flower pot with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint in the color Irish.
I painted the inside rim and top of the green flower pot with the black chalkboard paint.
I cut a strip of dollar store table cloth. I folded it up and cut little triangles on one side.
I used my hot glue gun and glued the hair into place on the top rim of the green flower pot.
I drew a face on with pencil first. Next I used a combination of paint and markers to trace the face.
I added silicone to the top of the flower pot.
I placed the plain pot on top of the black flower pot.
I bought a 5T purple long sleeve shirt from Walmart. I cut zig zags on the bottom of the shirt.
I slid the shirt onto the plain flower pot. I stuffed the sleeves with a couple grocery bags. I hot glued the hands to look like he was putting his hands in his pockets.
I added silicone to the top of the shirt flower pot and placed the head on top.
You can place a hat on his head, plant fall flowers, add faux flowers, or perhaps some branches.
I'll place him on my porch for everyone to enjoy.
On Halloween, I'll be placing candy for trick or treaters in his head.
