Witch's Cauldron Craft

These small cauldrons are perfect to use as a decoration or to use to hold favors and treats at a party.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

The bowl I used to make this witch's cauldron was bought at a dollar store. I got 4 bowls for $1.00! You can use any plastic or paper bowl you have. A clean margarine tub would work well.

Start out by painting the bowl and the wooden beads black. Let them dry.

Use a chenille stem as a handle. Using the scissors, poke two holes near the top edge of the bowl, directly across from each other. Push an end of the chenille stem through each hole. Bend up the ends to secure.

Glue the three beads to the bottom of the bowl, evenly spaced apart. Let the glue dry.

Your witch's cauldron is now done. Feel free to personalize it however you like. You can use paint or other craft supplies.

I hope you enjoy this craft project. If you make this craft, make sure you send in a photo so it can be posted here. You can also get your own crafts published.
