Chalkboard Pumpkin Planters

Have you seen the latest trend? It’s turning pumpkins into anything and everything. I love it and I’m on the bandwagon! Turns out the bright orange plastic jack o’ lanterns aren’t destined to just be hideous (too strong?) candy buckets. They have the ability to be so much more… like planters, and chalkboard planters! Yes.Chalkboard Pumpkin Planters

I wanted to whip up a quick fall porch on the cheap so I went back to basics. It doesn’t get any more basic then the good ol’ orange jack o’ lantern. Am I right? Those things go back as far as I can remember but from here on they will be much cuter in my memory 馃檪
Chalkboard Pumpkin PlantersAll I did to turn the orange pumpkins into fabulous chalkboard pumpkin planters, was to paint them with chalkboard paint. After a few coats (letting them dry completely in between coats), they were ready for some fall foliage.
Chalkboard Pumpkin PlantersI planted some pretty yellow mums in each planter. They are just quintessentially fall in my book. And can we just talk about how fun chalkboard paint is? I’m already having a blast with these little chalkboard pumpkin planters. I love that I can change the message frequently throughout the season. I have a couple of ideas for Halloween as it gets a bit closer. So fun!Chalkboard Pumpkin Planters

Here’s the deal with this super quick and cheap fall porch, my chalkboard pumpkin planters only cost $1 each. At that price it’s really hard not to want a zillion of them. I also got a bundle of Indian corn from the pumpkin patch along with a few pumpkins – because no fall porch is complete with real pumpkins (+one fakie).

I’m so happy with my new fall planters. They totally transform my idea of those well known orange jack o’ lanterns. How about you?!

psst… here are a few more fall projects to inspire you!

  10. I too like the chalkboard pumpkins & thank you for sharing the project. The mums make them look so nice & like them with the chair. I hope you don’t mind if I ask a couple of questions: I’ve done other projects with these containers and the face always seems to show through regardless of what they are being covered with. How did you cover the face or is it turned to the back? Did you use spray paint or paint and brush? I’m a new subscriber coming from and the 100 Fall Project Ideas link.

  11. What a cute idea! We like it so much, we’re pinning it (soon) to The Home Depot Garden Club Pinterest board. Thanks for sharing it.

  13. The equipment itself is not really particularly expensive these times, so leasing can cost considerably more
    in the medium-to-long term. You can know all the
    ins and outs of business and can run a restaurant without fail;
    but would you know the first thing about installing the
    kitchen grills. Typically, this works well if we are involved in a solid networking and we reciprocate, by referring clients
    to those other businesses.
