Something’s brewing! And it only takes five minutes to whip up! Add a witch’s touch to your Halloween decorations with this glowing cauldron!
You know what I love?
Something that can pull double duty.
And in it’s time, this pot has done a fantastic job of pulling double duty.
While we don’t know it’s age for sure, but we’re guessing closer to 100 years than not, it’s produced cracklins, rendered lard, and probably done countless other tasks that are lost with generations who have passed on.
For the last few decades, it was sitting in a basement, and guessing from the tiny shredded pieces of paper found in the bottom of it when I pulled it out, it has also served to keep a mouse or two warm at night. The lengths I will go to for a good Halloween decoration.
Proving it’s double duty value, this Halloween season, the ancient black pot is parading around as a witch’s glowing cauldron.

How to Make a Cauldron Glow
Materials and Supplies Needed
- Cauldron – if you can’t get your hands on the real thing, there are lots of plastic and ceramic ones out at stores right now for Halloween
- Green Christmas Lights
- Five Yards of White Tulle
- Fillers for Your Cauldron (see below.)
If you have a cauldron similar in size to mine or larger, you’ll want to fill in the bottom of it with materials to push all the glowing goodness to the top.
I mashed some Target boxes all into mine. Super technical, folks.
Arrange the green lights on top of the fillers or in the base of a smaller cauldron.
Loosely twirl the tulle around in the pot on top of the lights.
You just want it fluffed in the cauldron. Don’t stuff it down in there.
Turn on your lights…
You glow girl!
How fun is that for Halloween?
