It's the most wonderful time of the year :) Halloween is coming it is raining here and I am ready! Every room of my home will have some little spooky critter or creature lurking. Join me in creating a carnivorous house plant or 3 or 4 :)
small gauge floral wire
miniature clay pots
some cheese cloth
and acrylic paints
Create a T shape with your wire
take a small amount of Clay. enough for the bottom of your pot.
Cover your wire T with masking tape and invert. Poke through the clay.
remove the upside doen T
this will be your plant head and stems
cover each stem with clay and create a head out of a ball of clay
you can split the head for a mouth :)
create eyes from smaller balls of clay and attach to the wet clay head with a little bit of water.
make leaves for hands by elongating the balls you have attached to the side stems.
using a toothpick you can create teeth, by pulling through the clay.
add nostrils and tiny grooves in the stems to add character :)
Once dry you can use some tacky glue and attach the cheese cloth to the inside of the clay pot.
another dab of tacky glue and attach the plant base to the inside.
Now you can paint your plant to creepy perfection!!!
Thank you so much for following along!
I hope you have enjoyed this project :)
