Terra Cotta Pumpkin Bell

Supplies
 

  • 2 Terra Cotta Clay Pot

  • Small Wooden Spool

  • Green Fun Foam

  • Orange and Brown Paint

  • Black Permanent Marker

  • Floral Wire (thin)

  • 3/4 Jingle Bell

  • Clear Acrylic Sealer

  • Hot Glue Gun

Directions
 

  • Remove terra cotta dust and dirt from the clay pot using a damp cloth and let dry completely

  • Turn the pot upside-down and paint the pot orange. Paint the wooden spool brown.
    Set both aside to dry.

  • Glue the wooden spool on the top of the pot, matching up the holes in the center.
    Draw a jack- o-lantern face on with black marker. Spray with acrylic sealer.

  • Cut a green leaf from fun foam and glue to the wooden spool. Cut a few lengths of wire
    and wrap them around a pencil or your finger to curl and glue to the wooden spool.

  • Cut (2) 6 pieces of floral wire. Fold one in half and twist the two ends together,
    forming a loop at one end and a T at the other.

  • Slide the bell onto the other piece of wire and twist together to hold the bell in place.

  • Attach the two wires by sticking the ends of the wire with the bell through the
     loop of the other wire and twist to secure.

  • Push the loop from the first wire up through the inside of the pumpkin and
    out through the spool. Pull gently until the T shape reaches the top inside
     of the pumpkin. Put a small amount of glue to hold the wire in place.
