Watering Can Jack O Lantern
Make a watering can Jack O Lantern. If you don’t have a watering can grab a large pail, tin bucket, or something similar. Use Duck Tape for the design then remove it when Halloween is over. Reuse and Repurpose.
The watering can never looked cuter.
It’s one of my junk store finds and usually holds a flower display. It’s been known to sit around on the dining room table, on the fireplace hearth, even on the coffee table. Time to try something different.
I pulled this roll of Duck Tape from my stash. A few years ago I bought several rolls of various designs. The granddaughters like to use the tape for their projects too.
I cut triangles using a pair of scissors.
Then placed the triangles on the watering can. I didn’t worry with getting the triangles the exact same size or placing them perfectly straight. That’s how I roll.
When I got ready to cut the tape for the Jack O Lantern mouth I used a utility knife instead of scissors. The tape tends to stick to the scissors. Then I get frustrated.
I cut short pieces of tape and put them on all willy nilly.
See, two minutes and you have a cute display for Halloween and/or Fall. I almost hated posting the project because it’s so easy. You guys really didn’t need a tutorial just a photo of the watering can jack o lantern. Anyone can do this project.
I set the can beside the rusty wagon I filled with ferns and impatiens for Summer. I never took photos or wrote a post about the cute wagon planter.
I put the watering can on the front porch with the new Fall décor. I may add flowers to the can later. Have to make another trip to the plant store first.
I thought it was time to make my favorite Fall treat too. First I decorated a clear glass container with Duck Tape.
My favorite Fall treat is candy corn and salted peanuts. Have you tried this? Just like a Payday candy bar.
I filled my newly made jack o lantern candy dish with mix. And that’s it. Do you have any Duck Tape, electrical tape, masking tape, or something similar around the house? Make a few Halloween decorations.
