I know exactly what you're thinking. You think I've gone completely gaga over chalkboard paint. Well, my friend, you're right on the money! I've done a chalkboard spice rack, chalkboard napkin rings, chalkboard invitation charms, and now I'm taking my love for all things chalkboard into Halloween decor.


To make chalkboard pots, you only need three items:

  1. flower pot
  2. chalkboard spray paint
  3. liquid chalk marker

Spray the pot and let it dry for a few hours. You only need one coat! Use your chalk marker to write a Halloween message. You can freehand it, or use stencils as shown in my spring flower pot art. Using the liquid chalk marker allows you to place the pot outside.


When Halloween is over, you can wipe away the chalk with water and a paper towel and write or draw something else. This is the craft that keeps on giving, and trick-or-treaters will surely appreciate your front porch creativity.
