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 tutorial 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 everything 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!
Every Witch Needs a Bubbling Cauldron!
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 found some small smoke/fog bubblers sold for so much less (ridiculously less, lol) so I decided to make my own.
I just love how it looks! The kids in the neighborhood are absolutely fascinated by the witches and the cauldron. My office looks out over the yard and I can see the all little kids checking it out. (and even a few adults stopping to snap pictures, lol) It is just too cute to watch.
The best part about the cauldron is the mist makers had color changing led lights, so you could really see the fog at night. It was so cool looking, I included a little video at the bottom of the post so you could see the bubbling cauldron in action.
How to Make a Bubbling Cauldron
Supplies used to make a bubbling cauldron:
- I bought 2 fog makers so I could have lots of fog, added them to the bottom of my cauldron.
2. Add water to the cauldron: (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)
3. I set the cauldron on a little crate, painted black and put a red led light projector under the crate (which I already had.)
And voilà! A bubbling cauldron!
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!
