An Oozing Cauldron

One of my favorite Halloween decorations is this bubbling cauldron I made a few years back. I saw the idea in a magazine and knew I had to try it!

I picked up some clearanced cauldrons, some acrylic paint & some expanding foam (in the can). We stuffed part of the cauldron with newspaper, so we wouldnt have to use so much foam. After spraying, you need to let the foam sit a few days, because it wil contract. Then you just paint and you're done! I supposed you could try spray paint, but I used acrylic, and topped it with a glossy topcoat so it would look wet. I have thought about doing maybe orange and purple, but havent done it yet. This is what I traded for the witch fingers in my last post.

I've thought about maybe trying to make some to sell, but this stuff expands & contracts with the humidty and Ive had to touch them up every year, so I dont know.

Here they are on display in 2007.

Check out Along the Way With J&K for more great Fall decor! Would anyone want to see how I made them? Have a great Sunday!
