Every witch needs her own cauldron. Here's how to make your own paper mache
little witch's cauldron for Halloween.
: 45 minutes plus drying time
: Any age
We plaited black raffia for the handle. It makes a sturdy handle which keeps a good shape. However you could also plait strips of black plastic rubbish bag, staple on a cardboard handle or just use string.
We used diluted white PVA glue (mix of half glue, half water) for the paste. Check out Ultimate Paper Mache website
for a flour and water paste recipe. You could also use wallpaper paste.
Ready to go
Extra layers over the edge of the bowl
Ready to paint
Poke a hole carefully with a skewer
