Chalkboard Pumpkin Planters

Do you have any of those plastic jack-o-lantern buckets sitting around with the rest of your Halloween decorations?  If so, Chelsea from Making Home Base has a great idea for repurposing them.

Orange Plastic Pumpkin

For this project, Chelsea simply painted her jack-o-lantern buckets with chalkboard paint.  She says that it took a few coats of the paint to completely cover the orange plastic.  All she needed to do after the paint dried was to prime them with chalk before writing Autumn messages on them and plant some pretty yellow mums inside.  “I love that I can change the message frequently throughout the season,” Chelsea says.  Too cute!
