How to make a bubbling cauldron: Want to have the spookiest yard in the neighborhood this Halloween? Then you need to add this Bubbling Cauldron to your outdoor display!
Easy Bubbling Cauldron Tutorial:
I’ve been so excited to get my outdoor Halloween decor up this year.
I admit I was totally ready to put it out the day after labor day, but hubby managed to convince me to wait another couple of weeks before scaring all the children in the neighborhood with all my Halloween goodies.
I found these amazing witches online (and 30% off) at Grandin Road. They are sold out now but based on the reviews, I think these witches are a Halloween decoration they might bring back next year too. The witches faces glow as well.
I just love them, don’t they look amazing!!
Grandin Road also had an amazing bubbling cauldron for sale that accompanied these witches, but it was around $90 and after a quick search on Amazon, I saw these little smoke/fog bubblers sold for around $9 so I decided to make my own. (Hmm, just grabbed the link and noticed the price has gone up. I guess supply and demand for Halloween has driven the price up!)
I bought 2 fog makers so I could have lots of fog, added them to my cauldron.
Add water: (but not too much or it hiders the fog makers ability to spout the fog out of the water.) Also, you should be aware that the mist/fog maker does splatter water around, so you would not want to put them anywhere that would get damaged by water. (like a wood table)
And voilà! A bubbling cauldron!
I set the cauldron on a little crate, painted black and put a red led light projector under the crate (which I already had.)
I just love how it looks! The kids in the neighborhood are fascinated by the witches and the cauldron. My office looks out over the yard and I can see the little kids checking it out. (and even a few adults stopping to snap pictures, lol)
Supplies used to make a bubbling cauldron:
- Fog/mist makers (I used 2 for maximum effect)
- 14 inch plastic cauldron
- Crate (find these at Michels or other craft stores)
- Light projector
That’s’ it! If you end up making one of these, be sure to tag me on Instagram or share a pic to my Facebook page so I can see it!
