Spooky season is coming and you’re feeling crafty? I have the perfect project that will only take about 25-30 minutes and looks BEAUTIFUL when you’re finished.
The kids will get a kick out of this one too! BTW- if you’re interested in seeing an outdoor DIY cauldron, let me know in the comments!
What you’ll need…
• medium sized ceramic or plastic cauldron
• 10-12 large iridescent clear ornaments (found mine at hobby lobby)
• 10-12 (maybe less depending on preference) small to medium sized plain clear ornaments (found mine at Michael’s)
• several hot glue sticks
• high temp glue gun
• fairy lights (any color you like)
How to make it…
You’re going to start by adding a few dots of hot glue inside of cauldron and placing the large iridescent ornaments (hooks removed) on top of the glue dots, to secure from moving around.
Once you’ve filled the inside bottom layer of cauldron you’re going to start alternating the ornaments to arrange a bubbling effect. You will use both sizes as you’d like. Each time you place an ornament be sure to secure with hot glue. Side to side with surrounding ornaments or bottom side when resting ornaments on top of another. Mid way of arranging your “bubbles” you’re going to want to add in those fairy lights. Place them so they’re hidden inside the bottom of cauldron, making sure to leave the battery box outside & on the back side of cauldron for easy access to on and off switch. When you’ve completed that step, continue to add remaining “bubbles” to completion.
PRO TIP: I stacked my bubbles unevenly to give it a “spilling out” effect. I did this by hot gluing a few clusters of smaller ornaments on one side of cauldron.
That’s it!! So easy and such a fun eye catching decoration that will be the topic of conversation EVERY time.
