What is the magic potion to make a witches’ cauldron? Use your repurposing powers and flowers, ornaments, eyeballs, crystal beads and sparkle!
For your cauldron you can use any black ceramic pot. I used a ceramic black planter, tureen, or vase – not sure which – from the thrift store.
Here are a few ideas for a cauldron that I think would be fabulous!

Your Magic Potion – Supplies I Used
Just a few ingredients …
Put The Magic Into The Cauldron
How To Make The Culdron
- Stuff paper into the bottom of your cauldron
- Run a bead of hot glue around rim of cauldron
- Stick styrofoam ball onto hot glue
- Stick skewers into styrofoam ball at varying heights
- Remove the top of your ornament
- Put hot glue on the tip of your skewer and slide ornament on
- Hold for a few seconds until it cools
- Add eyeballs to your ornaments – I did this with this project and now everything gets eyeballs!!
- Continue to add ornaments on skewers until cackling with happiness
- String beads on bead string, make sure it is long enough to “drip” down the sides of your cauldron
- Tie these bubbles (bead strings) onto your skewers on the outer edge
- Add in flowers to fill the gaps – if unable to poke them in the styrofoam use a skewer to make a hole.
Vintage flash cards are a great finishing touch to any vignette!
Fun flash card combos –
– Candy (Hocus Pocus) + Bucket (Summer at the Shore)
– Spooky (Hocus Pocus) + Owl (Fall & Autumn Fun) or Bat (Hocus Pocus)
– Love (Farmhouse) + Halloween (Hocus Pocus)
– Apple (Schoolhouse Rocks) + Pie (Fall & Autumn Fun)
