Terra Cotta Pumpkin

 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 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 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.
