Hi, I’;m Calli from Make it Do. I am so happy to be a guest here on the Polka Dot Chair.

With Halloween right around the corner, I wanted to share a quick and easy decoration idea. Make it Do is all about using what you have to make life sweetaccent pillow case baby canvas baby decoration, and this cauldron is no exception. It is inexpensive to create. With a short scavenger hunt around my house, I happened to already have everything I needed already.

I started with an old twiggy wreath that used to hang on my front door long ago. It’;s seen better days…; but that’;s all the better for my rustic woody layer for my witch’;s fire. You can make a twiggy wreath by wiring twigs from your yard to a metal wreath form available at most craft stores.

Next, use a couple of pieces of colored tissue paper to make the flames. I love using both yellow and orange together.

Place heatproof bowl into the center of the wreath on top of the tissue paper. My bowl is glass, but a metal bowl would work too. Place a strand of Christmas lights into the bowl, make sure all the lights are in the bowl and will not come in contact with the tissue. These lights get hot and you don’;t want a real fire! It works great to keep the lights bundled up. Plug an extension cord into the lights and run it out the back of the display to an outlet.

Next comes the cauldron. This is a copper colored plant container that I use for flowers. It makes a perfect cauldron. You can also use a large black canning pot or a cast iron dutch oven.

Every Halloween, many of my neighbors drop in for a bowl of chili and homemade breadsticks on their way to go trick or treating. I love to serve homemade root beer with dry ice served right out of the cauldron for all the kids. I use a food safe bowl hidden inside. Doesn’;t that look like a real fire?

My daughter almost believes she’;s a real little witch. This is a wonderful, fast and easy decoration, just in time for setting a spooky mood this Halloween.

Laura here from Trash to Couture and I’m sharing with you my off-the-shoulder ruffle top. This is?a versatile top that can be casual or dressed up for a special occasion. I chose a light weight organic cotton gauze to keep it breezy for the Georgia heat. You can make the hem longer for a dress or add trim for extra?details. Once you get the hang of this pattern you’ll want one in every color and print.
