Candy Corn Pots | Erica Robbin

  • Servings: As many as you want
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Tastes like a Payday!




  • Terra cotta pots
  • Indoor/outdoor craft paint (white, jack-o-lantern, bright yellow, and black- for the face if desired)
  • 1″ paint or sponge brush
  • Fine detail paint brush
  • Blue painter’s or masking tape
  • Clear glaze sealant (I like Krylon Triple-Thick Crystal Clear Glaze)
  • 1 package candy corns
  • 1 package salted peanuts
  • Treat bags with ties



  1. Section thirds with tape and paint accordingly. It make take a few coats to achieve complete opaqueness. Or leave it somewhat transparent for a more rustic look.
  2. Paint a cute face.
  3. Seal with a light coat of glaze.
  4. Mix candy corns and peanuts in about a 1:1 ratio.
  5. Fill each bag and place into pots.

The candy corn concoction was originally created in the late 19th century by George Renninger of the Wunderle Candy Company. The colors and shape was made to represent corn kernels and was initially called “chicken feed.”

Here is a craft made from terra cotta planters that I painted the classic candy corn yellow, orange, and white. When you mix candy corns and peanuts together, it tastes just like a Pay Day candy bar! And this craft makes a wonderful gift!

If you make this adorable decoration and want to share a photo, be sure to comment down below! Also let me know if you have tried the candy corn peanut mixture before, it’s really good!

PS i made some cute turkey Reese’s Pieces jars too. These are made out of felt and google eyes.
