DIY Witches Cauldron Halloween Craft


If you are like us then you will need no encouragment to get your craft box out and create something. Halloween gives us just the excuse to make and do! Why not try out our easy DIY Halloween Witches Cauldron craft? It’s super easy and quick to make.

Here is what you will need


Baubles – I change the colour schemes of my tree to match whatever the room is decorated in, so these lime green baubles were no longer needed.

Cotton Balls

Mini Pom Poms

Green Pipe Cleaners

Googley Eyes


LED Battery Powered Lights




Plastic Cauldron


First we filled our cauldron with scrunched up newspaper. Doing this just saves you having to fill the whole thing with baubles.


We then placed our LED lights on top and carefully placed our green baubles, making sure to leave little gaps for the lights to shine through.



Theย baubles were placed upside down (as you don’t want to see the hanging part) and then we added some green mini pom poms to make it look like a disgusting bubbling broth.


We then stuck some google eyes onto our white cotton balls with PVA glue for our eyeballs.


Then twisted some lengths of pipe cleaner around our finger to create ringlet like shapes to represent the ghastly green smoke rising from the cauldron.

Lastly I designed a label, which you can also do quite easily using Picmonkey, and drew some little pumpkin shapes which we coated with PVA and glitter.



Monkey stuck on the pumpkins and label and I stuck the pom poms flowing down the side with a glue gun.


Here it is by night!


It’s so much more fun having a go at making your own Halloween decs rather than buying them in. There are lots of Hobbycraft supplies to choose from! So why not have a go at this simple craft and #makeitdontbuyit.

    Oh wow this is such a clever idea and it looks great. We don’t normally do much for Halloween but I think I will go all out and decorate the house next year when the kids are older, something like this would look fab in the hallway x
