Brew Your Own Spooky Vibes With This Boiling Witch’s Cauldron DIY
When it comes to DIY decorations, Halloween is one of the best holidays to get creative. Whether it’s carving jack-o’-lanterns or turning your home into a haunted house, a trip to the craft store is in order. One project that’s always guaranteed to impress is a boiling cauldron. If you’ve been on social media lately, you probably know there are many ways to achieve the look of an overflowing witch’s brew, but if you’re looking for a method that will last longer than putting dry ice in a cauldron and that’s in no way a hazard, look no further than this tutorial. All you’ll need are a cauldron, a hot glue gun, acrylic paint, and either poly-fil stuffing or a plug-in aroma diffuser.
Fire expert Dan Morris of Fire and Saw told POPSUGAR that mixing flammable materials of any sort is a bad idea. “Most, if not all, electric diffuser manuals state that they need to be operated with plenty of space around the vent,” Morris said.
