O-M-Gosh! This do-it-yourself witch’s cauldron is so easy and flipping cute. It’s perfect for your front porch Halloween display or a spooky decor in your home. So let’s brew up something cute together.
You’ll be amazed at how easy this DIY project is and the results are fabulous. I made this cauldron as an accessory to my witch on my front porch and they look fabulous together. So, let’s get started!
Gather your witch’s cauldron supplies
First, you need to make sure that you have all the supplies necessary. Here’s the list:
- Large plastic cauldron
- Old sheets or blankets
- 2 cans of expanding foam
- Lime green spray paint
- Polyurethane spray
- Green foam balls
- Plastic eyeballs
- Other spooky decorations such as spiders, snakes and skulls
#1: Fill your cauldron
Now that you have all your supplies, fill your cauldron with old sheets or small blankets that you don’t need anymore. Leave about an inch of space below the top of the cauldron. Then, spray one layer of expanding foam to just above the lip of the cauldron and let it dry.
After your first layer has dried, add another layer on top of that. Spray the foam in excess near the edges so that it oozes over the side. But don’t spray too much that it drips right off the cauldron. Be generous, this is a boiling pot of witch’s brew after all.
Just make sure you don’t touch the expanding foam. I made that mistake and couldn’t get it off my hands for days!! Right after you’re done with your second layer, sprinkle the green foam balls all over the foam before it dries.
Next, cover the plastic cauldron with a garbage bag. Make sure there’s no black showing so it doesn’t accidentally get painted. Then spray all of the foam with lime green spray paint. This will help keep the foam balls in place as well. Your witch’s cauldron should start looking pretty spooky right about now.
Finally, the really fun part. Grab some plastic eyeballs and hot glue them all over the green witch’s brew. Add as many as you would like. You can also add spiders, snake and mini skulls. Whatever you want! As a last step, I sprayed a later of polyurethane all over the brew so the little foam balls didn’t fall off. It helped a lot.
This DIY witch’s cauldron couldn’t have been easier. Plus, this will be a permanent feature in our Halloween decoration for years to come.
You can complete the ensemble with a witch’s broom or a creepy life-size witch. You’re going to love it. Let me know how it turns out. Leave your comments below.
