There is a house in my neighborhood that had a terra cotta pumpkin sitting out on it's porch....all year. I thought it was cute...in October....by January I was just curious how one acquires a terra cotta pumpkin. I don't know what they paid, but now that it's in season again....I think I'll add my own. I promise to put it up before Valentine's Day.
I did the cheater way. I bought a pumpkin pale...I found these mini's at Walmart for 77 cents....how cute will these be as little gifts for friends this Halloween? I drilled a hole in the bottom so it would drain. I yanked off the handle, and then painted it with terra cotta paint. I got this in the Martha Stewart section at Michael's with a coupon. It took about three coats to cover up the black. I could have sprayed it orange first so the black wasn't an issue, but....I just slapped on a coat every time I passed it. The end. It would be cute to add mums to a bigger pail. I know for a fact...I've been looking at one all year.
