Scraps Aren’t Crap – Spooky Frames

Believe it not, I actually had a tub of Styrofoam balls that I bought at Home Goods last year….why did I have a tub of Styrofoam skulls you ask….? No idea! I’m sure when I at the time i was convinced that I could make something fabulous with them, NOT! Truth is, they were probably on clearance and I couldn’t pass up the deal.

Witches Cauldron – Quick Costume

Everyone that knows me, knows that I love all things Halloween. In fact, I generally dress up in a different costume every day the week leading up to that night! When the kids were little, I tried to match their costume theme. This was one my all time favorites to make and wear!


Big Plastic Cauldron

1.5″ Ribbon or straps

1 Small bag of Ployfill

Multi Size pack of Styrofoam Balls

Lime Green Acrylic Paint

Old Headband

Utility Knife

Hot Glue


Step 1: Using the utility knife, cut the bottom of the cauldron. Optional: place black duct tape on the cut edge.

Step 2: Take the Black Ribbon and hot glue them to the top opening of the cauldron to make the suspenders.

Step 3: Using a paint brush apply lime green paint on the Styrofoam balls. NOTE: Do not use spray paint as it will melt the Styrofoam.

Step 4: Glue Styrofoam balls and Poly-fill on the top rim of the cauldron to make it look like it’s bubbling over. Also glue a couple of Styrofoam balls to an old headband with some Poly-fill.
