    I made it out of a 8.5" pot, it turnned out beautiful. It was used to hold bags of candy corn for candy corn bingo at family night.

    I love sherpal1997's idea of making these for class gifts! So cute, I think I'll try these for my daughter's 1st grade class. Thanks for the tip on individual candy bags for food safety!

    Since the pots are not "safe" it is a good idea to put the candy in a seperate bag - I made these a couple of years ago and just spray painted the top band by stacking the pots! The stacking kept the bottom the natural terra cotta and the bands were white. Then I took a regular kitchen sponge and cut it into a square - took black paint and sponged a black checkerboard over the white. A bag of candy-corn and peanut mix (taste just like a Payday candybar) and up to school for a treat!

    I made these last year for my daughters 3rd grade class. I added a name tag cut from brown card stock and added a tiny raffia bow. I used candy corn that was in individual packages. They were a hit.
