Mini Halloween Eyeball Wreath Notes:

• This wreath is quite simple in design. We used eyeballs for the decor and kept it at that. You could add: black cats, lizards, worms, bugs, spiders, cockroaches, etc.

• If using this to decorate cabinets (kitchen, office, school), you can make these all the same, or swap out the tulle colors to change them up, or add some of the creepy-crawlers suggested above to individualize each wreath.

• The mini wreaths can be found at your local dollar store (well, that is where we got ours), and come two in a pack. These directions are for one wreath.

• The hanger is optional. The length you use will be determined by where you would like to hang this mini wreath.

• The wooden witch hats were found in a five-pack at the dollar store.

Mini Halloween Eyeball Wreath Directions:

1. Cover your work surface against paint slips and hot glue incidents.
2. Paint your witch’s hat black on both sides. Allow to dry completely. This is cheap wood, so it dries very quickly and soaks in the paint. If you would like to add a second coat after the first coat of paint is dry, that is fine. This craft only has one coat of paint on the witch hat.

Homemade Halloween Witch’s Cauldron Wreath

multicolored bulbs formed to imitate bubbles flowing from the cauldron attached to a half-moon black prelit wreath, hanging on a black door


A step by step guide on making a Halloween wreath inspired by a witch’s cauldron! This easy to follow tutorial teaches you how to make a Halloween witch’s cauldron wreath. This wreath is perfect Halloween door decor your trick or treaters will love!

With apologies … Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble …

Homemade Halloween Witch’s Cauldron Wreath

Song of the Witches
– Williams Shakespere
(from Macbeth)

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

multicolored bulbs formed to imitate bubbles flowing from the cauldron attached to a half-moon black prelit wreath, hanging on a brown door with a glass insert


Needless to say, that verse has been percolating in my mind the last few weeks! I may have taken some poetic license to make the idea come together.

I have completely revamped my Halloween foyer décor, and the theme is witches!! I took my fabulous Easy DIY Halloween Glitter Witch’s Broomsticks and added Homemade Halloween Witch’s Cauldrons and now all I needed was a wreath to tie it all together!

When I was bugging my niece to make those cauldrons, she came up with the wreath idea. She saw that fabulous lighted half-moon wreath at Joann’s and snagged it but quick! When she showed me it, I immediately grasped the concept and was on board with the plan.

This can be done with almost any black wreath. You just have to adapt the idea to what you have on hand or can find in your local craft store.

This wreath, unlike the cauldrons, was done very quickly. It is small so it only took about 45 minutes and that was with our fashioning a “cauldron” out of a small black party hat. If you can find a small plastic cauldron that fits your wreath size, it will probably only take you half an hour to make a medium (17″) Witch’s Cauldron Wreath.

Unlike the cauldrons. this Halloween Witch’s Cauldron Wreath was not expensive to make. Well, the wreath itself wasn’t cheap, but that was due to the lights being built into it. You can definitely do this for under $40 IF you find the dollar store eyeballs, have some of the pink, aqua, bronze, etc., shatterproof bulbs in your Christmas tree bulb-stock, and can find a reasonably priced black wreath at your local craft store.

Now, again, the question – how many bulbs? The answer? I don’t know. We used next to nothing of what is shown in the materials photo (the leftovers all went to making another cauldron and more wreaths). How many bulbs you use will depend on how big the cauldron you want to fill is, if you make a spill, and how large the bulbs you using are, and how many of the larger (medium) sized bulbs you decide to use on your craft. So much of crafting is personal taste and ideas.

Homemade Halloween Witch’s Cauldron Wreath Notes:

• This craft is about textures and sizes as well as colors. You will want to make sure to buy different textured bulbs such as sparkly, matte, shiny, dimpled, etc. Purchase different sized small bulbs as you will start small and end up tiny. You are not just matching or complimenting colors, you are matching and complimenting textures, colors, and sizes.

Make certain the bulbs you purchase are shatterproof!!!

• Make sure you take a step back from your cauldron while adding bulbs. This was quite important as we needed to see how visually it looked from a distance, see how heavy the wreath was, and how the textures were comming together. It helped in filling holes, and especially when we got to the part with the drips.

• If you are not purchasing a prelit wreath these spider lights and are fabulous to work with! They are a nice purple color, and they drape well and glue on easily.

• With the specialty bulbs (eyeballs, spiders, ghosts) they may not be able to be turned upside down to look “right”. Take notice of that as if your wreath is prelit, there are no spider lights to hide the caps.

• A big savings tip is to use a floral foam instead of trying to pack your cauldron with bulbs. Floral foam is also lighter!

• How many bulbs will you use? The honest answer is, “I don’t know.” It will depend on how large your cauldron is, how many medium bulbs you use, how many small, etc. I used nothing larger than 2″ was used on this wreath. The amount of medium bubls used was no more than 8, then smaller was about a dozen, when it got to tiny and teeny-tiny, a lot were used.

Homemade Halloween Witch’s Cauldron Wreath Materials:

• Pins (optional)
50ct Purple and Green Shatterproof 2-Finish Christmas Ball Ornaments 2″ (50mm) – the best bang for the color buck!
3 cm Ornaments – purchased green, orange, purple, and black
• At Hobby Lobby I bought a lot of tiny Little Christmas in bronze, green, and gold
• Also at Hobby Lobby they have Sliver balls (that are actually a gun metal gray), as well as Thanksgiving colors. These were a FANTASIC buy for the price and how many there were.
Darice Halloween Eyeball 45mm Plastic Mini Ornaments Set of 8 or head over to your local dollar tree store for the Specialty bulbs – there are only two eyeballs per pack, but that would make them 2/$1 and you cannot beat that price!
• Floral Foam
Maker’s Halloween LED Half Moon with Bat Wreath This one is the same shape, but not lit: Maker’s Halloween 17″ Half Moon Wreath-Black
• Mini caudron or Small Plastic Black Party Hat

Homemade Halloween Witch’s Cauldron Wreath Directions:

• Note: if you are working with a half moon wreath, prop it up. We used the bulb boxes.
• Attach your cauldron to your wreath using hot glue. If you do not have a cauldron in the size needed for your wreath, you can make your own!
• Cut a small plastic black party hat in half. You may have to cut it down further to match the scale of your wreath. In this instance, the hat rim was cut off, more of the hat was cut down, and then the rim was hot glued back on to form a rim. The whole thing was hot-glued heavily.

• Insert floral foam to fit the cauldron, hot glue in place. Note: use the floral foam and not more bulbs as it is lighter in weight as well as less expensive than layering bulbs in the bottom of the cauldron.

• Attach several medium sized bulbs and hot glue to the floral. You can pin in place first if you like. If you are not pinning the caps in place, you can detach the caps from the bulbs.
• Attach more bulbs. This is where you want to form a secure base so there is no wiggle on the upper layers. Secure your medium sized bulbs in place well.

• Once you are finished securing the bottom layer of bulbs, add a few medium sized bulbs on top for the second layer. You will also want to shift down to smaller bulbs. This whole craft is about working various textures, colors, and sizes to imitate a cauldron overflowing. Be aware of texture, size, and colors as you begin to add smaller bulbs to the next level. You may decide to add more large bulbs as you build.

• Once the top of your cauldron is built, you will want to add some bulbs to drape down the side of your pot mimicking an overflow. Take a step bck, hold the wreath against a wall or hang it on your door to see what is missing, and where you would like your spill(s). On this wreath, we chose three spills or unequal size to mimic a pot overflowing. You could also have one spill, and then have it trail accross the bottom of your cauldron.
• If you are doing this with a round wreath, you may want to center your cauldron and then you will have more opportunity to have overflows.
• Once you are done building the main two or three layers, now start adding smaller bulbs. The bulbs now are small, smaller, and smallest to imitate a bubbly drop. The colors come into play two. Since this is a black wreath and a black cauldron, less black bulbs were used. They create negative space, and this is a small area with a lot of black already. Keep that in mind.

• Even though you have been holding up your cauldron against a wall or door to make sure you have looked for any errant holes and to make certain that the balance was what you liked, clashing colors, lack of flow, as well as looking from above, before you clean up, give everything another look and a shake or two “just to be sure.” Make sure all your bulbs are securely fastened, and secure any that may have come loose.

• In this case, I knew I wanted to hang this on a front storm door that led to a front hall. The back was pretty untidy and showed floral foam and a hanging battery pack. I needed that covered, so the battery pack was tucked into the wreath wires. Then, more bulbs were added on the back of the wreath to cover the floral foam. These bulbs did not protrude too much, so if I decide to place this on a door it will not jut out. In this case, I knowing where I intended to hang the wreath meant a few more bulbs, and a few more minutes hot gluing, but it was worth in in the end.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 47 minutes

Ingredients

  • 10 oz Mini Marshmallows
  • 4 TBSP Butter
  • 2 drops Red Liquid Food Coloring
  • 8 drops Yellow Liquid Food Coloring
  • 6 cups Crispy Rice Cereal
  • 8 Rolo Minis, unwrapped
  • ¼ cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Green Icing Pen

Instructions

  1. Spray a large, microwave safe, bowl with cooking spray.
  2. Place 10 ounces of marshmallows and 4 tablespoons of butter in the greased bowl and microwave for 45 seconds.
  3. Mix well with a greased spatula.
  4. Add the 2 drops of red liquid food coloring and 8 drops of yellow liquid food coloring to the marshmallow mixture; mix well. You might need to add more red or yellow to get your desired shade of orange.
  5. Add 6 cups of crispy rice cereal to the orange marshmallow mixture, and mix well until all the crispy rice cereal is coated with the marshmallow mixture.
  6. Generously grease a mini Bundt cake or fluted pan. Using a greased spoon, fill each cup with the orange crispy rice mixture, pressing firmly into the pan. Let it cool for 30 minutes.
  7. Take the cooled crispy rice out of the mold and press two treats together to make the pumpkin shape, denting the top.
  8. Alternatively, if you do not have a mini Bundt cake or fluted pan, use a large greased ice-cream scoop and make crispy rice balls. You can then, mold it into a pumpkin shape.
  9. Gently press a Mini Rolo on the top of each pumpkin for the stem.
  10. Melt the ¼ cup of dark chocolate chips in the microwave and put it in a plastic baggie. Snip a corner of the baggie and make the eyes and mouth of the jack-o'-lantern on the crispy rice pumpkins.

  12. Serve the Jack O'Lantern Rice Crispy Treats immediately or store it in an airtight container.
