Potted Jack-O-Lantern Mums

Welcome to Day 4!

Today we are going to make Potted Jack-O-Lantern Mums for our 12 Days of DIY Fall Crafts series!

There has never been an easier project in the history of craft making.

I almost feel like I’m cheating by calling it a craft…but it technically is a craft because we use spray paint!

My favorite is the orange pumpkin…I’m definitely a classic type of girl! But I do think that the Jack-O-Lanterns are super cute painted in white!

    Your jack-o-lantern planters look great on your porch. The orange one is my favorite.

      But for this project I like the orange best.
