Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. The weather is just right, not too hot or cold, somewhere exactly in the middle. The neighborhood kids are all dressed up, running around, begging for candy. I think it is the decorations though that are the most fun. This is a tutorial to show you how to make a quick and easy Witch’s Brew decoration.
- Witch’s hat, shoe, and broom
- Black plastic cauldron
- Pool noodle
- Spider web cotton
- Plastic spiders
- Striped tights
- Sheet or small blanket
- Optional: picture frame
Step 1: Fold the noodle in half and put in cauldron along with the broom. I used an old sheet to hold the noodle and broom in place as seen in the picture to the left.
Step 2: Put the tights on the noodle.
Step 3: Place the hat on one end of the noodle and the shoe on the other. I originally planned to use two shoes and hang the hat from the broom. Kroger only had one shoe left so I tried it like this and decided to leave it. I think it brings a little originality to the decoration.
Step 4: Finish with the cotton spider web and small plastic spiders.
Optional: I added a picture frame with a Witch’s Brew recipe. I used Photoshop Elements and Picmonkey.com to create the recipe in the picture to the left. Photoshop was mainly for the symbols font so I wouldn’t have to be clever enough to come up with the recipe ingredients. Feel free to print this out and use it for your frame. My frame is 3X5. You will need to resize the picture to fit your frame choice.
