enchanted forest cauldron craft pumpkin

This creative pumpkin project makes the perfect enchanted forest DIY. Use this as inspiration to create your own filled cauldron! This project is a bit messy so cover your work area prior to beginning.
Step 1

Use a hotknife to cut off the top portion of a pumpkin. Discard the cut top.
TIP: Be careful when using a hotknife as they are very sharp and extremely hot. Work in a well-ventilated area.

Step 2

Working in sections, cover the outside of the pumpkin with a light and flexible modelling paste. While it’s wet, pour on sand so it sticks. Once the entire outside of the pumpkin is covered, let it sit overnight to completely dry.

Step 3

Now, paint the inside and outside of the pumpkin with black multi-surface paint and let dry.
TIP: A foam stippler works great to apply the paint to this texture.

Step 4

To add a handle, poke two holes on the top sides with a pencil. Cut a piece of naturally coiled wire and place it through each hole.

Step 5

Fill the cauldron with dry floral foam, Spanish moss and some dried embellishments.
TIP: Add butterflies or birds for an accent to the cauldron.
